In short: Seemed mostly up hill In full: It was really neat running around where the public normally isn't allowed, however it really seemed like the uphill sections were more prominent then the flat or downhill sections. Date of review: February 23, 2011
In short: Not a bad run In full: Overall, it wasn't bad.
The course itself was rather techinical, with some steep ish inclines, especially the long at the bottom of the course. Lots of people misjudging their pace on the first lap, crashing and burning on the second.
Interesting location with a trip through the horses stables!
A mix of runners, with the pros at the front, followed by the general level club runners and the beginners at the back.
Good levels of support actually, could hear the crowds cheering on the way round.
T-Shirt was good quality and free entry into the show made it a well priced event. Date of review: February 14, 2011
In short: Great race, will be back next year! In full: Good course, but sharp inclines that are definately steeper on the second lap!! Great atmosphere, marshalls cheering you on all the way round. Beginner friendly too, even though professionals are in the race. Date of review: February 14, 2011
In short: A 3 lap course with a few inclines but did get free entry in to show. In full: I though the 2 water stations on each lap was a bit much for a 10km in February in 3c. The only support was the start/finish area for each lap in front of the grandstand. Date of review: February 15, 2010
In short: personally not a good race In full: there could of been more marshalls around the entrance to the racecourse to prevent people crossing in front of us runners and the course was not organised well as i found there where too many turnings where if the race was around the Race course well it could of been better, the goodie bag was identical to the TCR one and no drinks where in it. so i wont be back to do another one sorry
In short: 3 Laps round a car park, little atmoshere, being told it's only a 10km race when asked if there was a medal! This and the fact the times printed on line were wrong sums up my lack of enthusiasm about this race. Date of review: February 11, 2009
