In short: Great PB potential In full: The start wasn’t too busy and was nice and chilled out. There were a couple of hills, but overall the course was flat. I achieved a new PB for a 10K, will definitely be back next year to beat my time. The organisation was superb.
In short: Good race for those that like flat courses In full: Always nice to return to my hometown and run past Valley Parade. The course isn't the most scenic in the world, but the start and finish in Centenary square is quite uplifting. Very nice technical T shirt on offer. Don't know how they will go on once work starts on the hole in the ground though. Will be back next year. Date of review: April 29, 2013
In short: Very good race. In full: Organisation was perfect as usual. Better T-shirt (technical) this time. Will do this one again definitely. A good one for runners to get into the sport. Well done everyone. Miles better than the other 10K in Bradford City Centre. Date of review: April 28, 2013
In short: Really good all round In full: Really enjoyed this one - all the logistics worked well, fast course, great start/finish area. Results turned up in my inbox very soon after the end of the race. Really good overall. Date of review: April 28, 2013
In short: Rather underwhelming In full: I think they try to make this race a bigger event than what it actually is. Good motivational atmosphere at the start, but from then on, all a bit flat apart from the brill band half way round. Not as flat as it's made out to be, but the steepest climb is soon over with while you are still fresh. Not the cheapest 10k but goes to a good cause so no worries. Guess I'll be back, when the sun came out it lifted the spirit, but 9am in the fog was not a good scene for me. Date of review: March 28, 2012
In short: My home race so I will run it again In full: Like many races Bradford 10k suffered from being a 9am start. People just don't turn up in numbers to support. I know loads of people who siad if it was later they would have come to watch. Organisation was good and the marshalls were fantastic. I ran a PB so the flat course is a real benefit if you want to go fast. Date of review: March 26, 2012
