In short: Well worth doing!! In full: My first time of doing this event, but following recommendations I though I would give it a go....and I wasn't disappointed!!!! A terrific, fast course........the only down side was I couldn't go as fast as I would of liked due to a heavy cold and cough......but I'll be back next year to beat this years time!!!

In short: As the T-shirt says - 'fast, flat and friendly' In full: Well organised and superbly marshalled race on flat and quiet country lanes and offering real PB opportunities. Will be back in 2008 Date of review: January 29, 2007
In short: Well organised and welcoming. Great idea the long sleeve t-shirt, why don't more runs provide these as I will wear this more often, so therefore more exposure for the run. Would pay £1 extra entry for bottle at water station. see you2008. Date of review: January 28, 2007
In short: Great organisation, flatter than a flat thing, mild temperature, could have done without the headwind in the last 3 miles In full: Same again next year without the wind please, the mile markers were bang on except for one (I thought it was mile 6 but I could be wrong). Helpful, encouraging marshals - could the organisers have a word with the Cardiff Marathon "organisers" ? Date of review: January 28, 2007
In short: Excellent In full: Struggling to fault this race really - as someone has already mentioned, the 6th and 7th miles seemed a bit out of sync, but aside from that the organisation of this race was flawless. Pancake flat with good marshalling and a nice t shirt. Fantastic value as well for an 8 mile race. Big thanks to all the organisers and I will be back next year! Date of review: January 28, 2007
In short: Good workout on a flat course, and ideal for a PB effort, if you know what your 8 mile PB is, of course!! Refreshments at the end not very good, but great T-shirt. Date of review: January 28, 2007
In short: 8 Miles of Country Lanes and as Flat as they come In full: Nice long sleeve T-Shirt, Fast, flat and 2 water stations. Small running shop at start. Mile 7 marker in wrong place. Toilets at the school where we start are not up to being flushed frequently enough. Plumb their water in to the mains, rather than a loft tank, or hire some portaloos next time. Additionally only one cubicle for the men was a bit woeful. Next year I suggest that runners hedge their bets and stop off in Tesco, just minutes from the start, for a number two.
Anyway, like I said, toilets aside it was brilliant. Date of review: January 28, 2007
