In short: flat, fast course In full: Very well organised. Flat and fast 2 lap course. Only one short hill which you tackle twice. water at about 4 and 8k. Could do with a medal, not just a t shirt, or maybe a goody bag. Being one of the last ones in I felt ignored. Not one organiser said well done or directed me to where the t shirts were. I think they forget that the last few have ran the same race as the first few Date of review: May 11, 2015
In short: Fantastic support from the locals! In full: This was my 3rd running of this race and this one had the best local support so far. Nearly all of the course was lined with people cheering and clapping which gives you just the boost you need on the second lap.
Some people have said the weather was a bit too hot but I disagree with that, the conditions seemed just right and a lot of the run is in the shade anyway.
There are a couple of negative points:
1) No goody bag! A bottle of water and a sand coloured t-shirt is stingier than normal - I'd have loved at least a chocolate bar or something to munch on.
2) My results have not been recorded. I wore my chip, started and finished in the normal places and crossed the mats, handed it in at the end, but my results are not there. I'm sure it's probably just a technical blip, but it's a bit annoying.
Despite the niggles I'll definitely be back next year. So far I've knocked 4 minutes off each previous attempt and hope to do the same again. Date of review: August 9, 2010
In short: Good race, nice people. In full: Not a huge fan of two lap courses but this is inoffensive enough, as said there was plenty of support out all around the course. Good mix of runners, good clubbers, first timers and underachievers like me! Did it last year, did it this, will probably do it next. Date of review: August 9, 2010
In short: Just a tad too hot for me In full: Not a good idea running with a full blown snotty cold, made breathing very difficult! Nice friendly race though, plenty of free parking nearby. Odd colour t-shirt! Date of review: August 8, 2010
