In short: Great for PB's In full: I did the whole series this year and each was run incredibly well even with the course issues beyond the organisers control. Nice flat run around the nature reserve with only the head wind from the sea to contend with at times. A nice summer evening series. Date of review: September 9, 2013
In short: A quick course In full: A well organised race. It's a fast, flat course. Great if the wind isn't catching your side. Always a nice atmosphere here. Plenty of places to get a nice meal afterwards. Date of review: August 29, 2013
In full: as has been said before this is a well run friendly event,the out and back route is very flat . a long drive for me ,but you wont be sorry if you try one of the races in rye,recomended. Date of review: August 3, 2013
In short: Great scenery, friendly atmosphere, fast course In full: It was a pity the Environment Agency's failure to finish their work meant that the course had to be changed. Though it's great scenery, a circuit would have been more enjoyable. It's a fast course: I did my fastest 10k for more than 3 years. Also friendly & well organised. Date of review: July 9, 2013
In short: Great fast course in a great setting In full: Nice atmosphere, very well organised race, fast course suitable for a 5k pb, I got mine as it was the first 5k for me! :) Hoping to get down there for the last race to try for a new pb! Nice fun kids race too, I think they did 1km but all came in looking happy & got a medal & clap from all of the 5k runners lined up for their race. All of this followed by fish & chips sitting by the harbour, an excellent evening! Date of review: September 3, 2012
In short: Friday night's all right for racing! In full: This was the only race of the Series I could engage in this year, and has become a poignant and somewhat emotional race for me, for personal reasons.
It was good to have timing chips this year, and bananas and choccie bars at the end as well as water. Nice medal too. The race was well organised, and as always, was a fun family event with the children's race beforehand. We always have to do battle with the westerly wind on the way out, which buffers you on the way back as well! But that's what happens when you run close to the sea!
All in all, a wonderful event put on by Martin and Cathy Burke, but a race with a personal poignancy for me now. And that is what will now always make it special. Date of review: September 29, 2011
In full: This remains a fast, flat course. If the winds stay low like they did this year, it's a great course for attempting PB.
I did wonder how much attention the St. John's Ambulance staff were paying attention to the runners coming in, as I had to alert them to a collapsed runner only metres from where they were stood. Still, it was nice of them to turn up! Date of review: August 2, 2011
