In short: Very welcoming and friendly race In full: Overall a nice course with the main part being through country lanes with little traffic. And plenty of downhill which is a plus for me. Many friendly and encouraging marshals along the route made for a great atmosphere. This was the first race I have run where there was a queue for the men's loos and no queue for the women's. That in itself deserves an extra star. The wooden medal at the end was an interesting novelty. My only small gripe was that there was no goody bag, not even a banana, at the finish. I don't mind too much about the goody bag but I count on a post-race banana - in the end I had to go to Waitrose next door to Race HQ to locally source one. But overall I was a happy runner, and if I were to do another 10K I'd definitely consider making it this one. Date of review: May 12, 2014
In short: Really well organised 10k around the country lanes of St Albans In full: Had a really fun time running through the country lanes. The organisation was simply superb with loads of happy marshalls. Would recommend it highly especially as you don't often get a wooden medal! Date of review: May 12, 2014
In short: Fab marshals and a slightly challenging route. In full: It definitely undulates. All the way round. One rather tedious piece through a housing estate. But overall, scenic country roads. All the marshals were great - enthusiastic support all the way round. And to top it all off I surprised myself with a better than expected time - especially considering the undulations!
In short: Great race, with good organisation and a course that is suitable for all In full: This was my first race so I wasn't sure what to expect, however I needn't have been worried. It was well run, with a course that is not too challenging. There are a few hills but it is more undulating than hilly. Really enjoyed it. Only complaints is that official results (with times) are still not on the website. Also the wooden medal felt cheap considering the price paid. Will still do it again next year.
