In short: fast, fast, fast In full: A nice flat course, not the most interesting of run (2 x 5k route) yet local strawberries and the most delicious Victoria Sponge cake I've ever tasted made it a good morning Date of review: May 23, 2012
In short: Fantastic support on a nice flat course In full: Great race. Marshalls were really supportive - a big thank you to them - and a big thank you to the Race Entry Secretary too.
My only little suggestion would be that I didn't find it very clear exactly where the finish line was as it looked like there were a few painted lines on the floor. After going on a bit of a sprint, I stopped thinking I'd done enough - but I wasn't over the line. Probably my fault for being a bit visionally challenged!
Overall enjoyed the race but just wish my legs had felt like going a bit quicker! Thank you to all who organised/helped! Date of review: May 22, 2012
In short: Great Race In full: Was a great race, route was really nice and marshalls encouraging. Loved all the cakes and strawberry's at the end made for a lovely finish to the race. Medal pretty good to. Date of review: May 22, 2012
In short: Very well organised - the cakes were a nice touch :o) In full: First time I have run Larkfield - very impressed with the organisation, marshalls were fab and the children at the water station were really encouraging. But what made it for me were the cakes and refreshments at the end - so much choice, I went for the blueberry sponge finally and it was delicious!
Great PB potential (got mine by about 10-11 secs), only shame it that it isn't chip timed as provisional results are showing me outside my PB but I started at the back so crossed the start line a fair few seconds after the elite runners.
I will definitely do it next year - hopefully in better health. Not sure it was wise to run after suffering a tummy bug!
Well done Larkfield AC - you should be very proud. Date of review: May 21, 2012
