In short: A fun, friendly, no pressure run, with a great opportunity to pick up some speed In full: Not the best scenery, but a friendly well organised run. Especially as it was organised by young students. The warm-up was great considering they got called in very last minute! Well done girls ;-)Loved the goody bag and the medal!! Will be there next year. Date of review: March 10, 2009
In short: Comfortable Run In full: My first 6 mile race in 6 years and felt very comfortable with the atmosphere and levels taking part. Well organised by the college/students Date of review: March 9, 2009
In short: Good fairly flat race, Fun lots of supporters In full: Great warm up. Thought the sub woofer and CD stereo in the car providing the backing music for the warm up was typical student but it did the job. Interesting start and fairly fast pace, not a huge amount of runners and I guess a lot of first timers. Loads of support and a great goody bag.
In short: This race, the 3mile and the 1mile at the same time makes this "one for the whole family". The group warm up has to be experienced. If you want to be taken seriously find another event . A training run with a number.... great fun, thank you !! d Date of review: March 9, 2009
In short: Well organised with medal and goody bag! In full: I ran the 3 mile fun run which was I believe was a slightly different route to the 6 mile run. It was well organised with a baggage facility, warm up, medal and goody bag. Date of review: March 8, 2009
In short: It did exactly what it said on the web-site... In full: It was a brilliantly organised race, extraordinary for the students' first time in fact and the best thing was that the field of runners was tiny, so if you were quick you could get a very good PB.
The only down-side is this. The Race is called the Farnborough Six, catchy and clever, but was told that it was a 10K race, so when I came in 2 mins inside my pb, I was a little suspicious. Now it is billed as a 6 mile race!.. Funny that, isn't it?..
Well done though, might be marshalling this year as I am preparing for the FLM. Date of review: February 26, 2009
In short: Great event by the 6th form college In full: I really enoyed this race and thought that it was a great effort by the 6th form college. As someone who runs in a lot of 10kms and is still very slow I was unimpressed that the young, fit students ran rings around me, I almost came in last! I wasn't execting a goodie bag so well done for supplying one that was actually quite good (a lot of races goodie bags are terrible) and I would imagine the budget couldnt stretch to a medal which would have been the only other thing to give full marks for this run. Well done guys! Date of review: March 30, 2008
