We've just set a new events-rating feature live here on, and we'd love to know what you think of it

Now you can say what you think of a race and give it a score, from the bottom of any race listing. Your ratings will be carried forward from year to year as a permanent record.

Do try it out, and see what other people have said about races (we've imported ratings from our previous polls). You can find any event as normal from the main event search page, or scroll to the bottom of these sample listings:

London Marathon
Abingdon Marathon
Bath Half
Beachy Head Marathon

The bottom of the listing shows a short summary of the ratings - if you click 'see all comments and ratings' you'll see full details, like this:
Great Gorilla Run

You'll also notice that we've changed the event-search page so you can find events in the past, to make rating easier.

Race overall. 98%

Ok, so how does this profit you? {there has to be money in it somewhere}

What are the odds that the Feelfine London 10k gets a good rating?

Sean, this is what I've hoped would come, it's an excellent idea.
I have tried to rate all my races in 04 as I've done them :-)

Yup like it.

Especially being able to search on past races.

And seeing everybody's scores and comments.

i have vented my spleen about cardiff 2002

Only UK or overseas can too?

Excellent idea but I can't see how to add a comment. Clicked on the Bath race and "add rating", but 2004 doesn't appear in the dropdown list. Am I missing something?

you can't rate a race more than once for a given year, and we've already importedyour 2004 rating from the old system

LA I have just rated at british race, but I have aske the nice Mr Fishpool if he can add and oveseas section, as lots of runners go to far flung places running. It would be a great bonus.
