In short: Was it 10k? In full: Ran the last race 10k, so was nice and quiet. Lovely and flat with smooth tarmac for a nice new PB. However having read these reviews - ithought I'd do my best to check - used an online distance route map thingy (runtastic) and it came out at 9.57km not convinced it was a 10k. So may have to try for my PB again :( Date of review: September 23, 2013
In short: Decent HM, Flat, fast course In full: Agree with the comments below regarding distance, was a little awkward but they seem to deal with it OK in the end as the Garmin read 21.1km, although this normally reads a little short so it may have been a bit further.
In short: Felt Like a bit of an after thought after a day sporting events In full: Strange race with a small field. I was there to pace a friend to sub-2s and on a flat 2 lap course it made my job easy. However the half marathon felt like a bit of an after thought tagged on the end of a day of Triathlon and open water swimming events. The signage was poor at certain points and marshals were clearly confused by one section were running had to do 2 mini loops of a section on the first lap and two on the second. Having worked hard on the first lap and run down those who had on off too fast, it was demoralising to suddenly see them a way off in front of us. I have a Suunto Ambit 2s, never known a GPS watch so accurate and I finished showing 13.13. My bet is those showing less had earphones in or just couldn't be bothered to do the extra mini-loops. Apologies to those who made a genuine mistake on a complicated course. Having said all that, now I know the course, I maybe back to have a crack at my PB. Date of review: September 23, 2013
In short: a bit of a weird one...they sent people the wrong way then realised their mistake...bit of a disaster...and my gps watch said 12.5 miles at the end...i think they mis-measured the course...a great time but ill never know if it was over the distance Date of review: September 22, 2013
In short: Good practice race for longer tris, convenient for people who are busy at weekends In full: This was a nice wee race on a Wednesday evening. The scenery was OK and I found a great starter as I'd never done a triahtlon before. The atmosphere was a bit 'get it over and done with' but not bad. My only disspapointment was the 4 portaloos. Not enough for 400 people! Date of review: October 1, 2010
