In short: A Challenging course, but many new runners are ready for the challenge! In full: It's been four years since I last raced in the Trowse 10K, in 2010. Its popularity grew that year and it's been a sell out ever since. The course, two lap, is challenging in parts with a long slow climb, however, its followed by a long quick downhill. What is impressive about this race, is that the organisers have managed to attract new people to running, whole families entering, fun runners and the committed runner. Is it the time, the place, or the great goody bag and excellent medal? Whatever the secret, CONAC have got a smashing 10K here. Well organized as always, well marshalled and most of all giving runners what they want. Thankyou and well done all involved. Date of review: April 21, 2014
In short: Great event In full: Well done to all involved, an excellently organised event, testing but fair course, good support and above average goodie bag. Look forward to doing it all again next year! Date of review: March 31, 2013
In short: excellent race, marshals everywhere, friendly crowd In full: Excellent race, no real negatives. Though podium medals or even just easter eggs for the winners would be nice. Date of review: March 31, 2013
In short: Great event with a couple of nice climbs thrown in! In full: CONAC do put on a decent race and this one is no exception. Great marshalling, good race HQ and a good medal and goody bag make this a good race. Earlier start time of 9am didn't deter plenty of spectactors from turning up. Not ideal PB territory because the climbs can catch you out but I run this route near enough every week because it's right by my work so I was well prepared. The finish on a gravel car park is not ideal as I nearly went over hitting the sharp turn in to it at speed but can see why they have to do it. Well worth entering, fills up every year.

In short: Excellent organisation as always by CONAC In full: Well organised at the Ski-Club with easy parking at the nearby county hall. The 2 lap race includes the long hill up through Trowse twice , but coming down through the Park towards the finish is a great feeling especially as I knew I was nearly 3 minutes inside my PB. A great memorable race, well done CONAC. Date of review: April 15, 2012
In short: A very enjoyable two lap race. Well done Norwich In full: This was the first time I did this race coming up from Essex for the weekend thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again. The organisation was excellent, with good parking facilities, with friendly and helpful marshalls. Medal and goody bag was very good with none of those useless leaflets. Well done Norwich Date of review: April 10, 2012
In short: Nicely organised, clubby two lap race in a quiet corner of Norwich with views of Whitlingham Broad In full: Welldone to CONAC for the organisation of this race. You made it look easy and we all know it's not!
The Snowsports centre makes a comfortable base with changing and baggage facilities and chip timing is unusual for a club-race.
The two-lap course felt tougher than I expected. A long, long uphill drag (twice!) was challenging. The downhill a nice relief.
Water station, goody bag, medal online results etc. all nicely done belying some hard work behind the scenes I'm sure.
I was on my own and visiting from afar so appreciated the support from the small band of spectators near the Start and Finish. Date of review: April 10, 2012
In short: Great new course! In full: I always do this race as I love running in the trowse!this year they changed the course a little still with the big hill though! I don't do this race to get a pb but you always know the race will run like clockwork as the city of Norwich team always put on a good race! Great day great turn out from the locals and great goody bag! I will always do it this race as its always enjoyable! Date of review: April 9, 2012
