In short: Once again a really well organised race + i got a PB! In full: A much better course this year, enjoyed the off road parts through parks etc. makes a change from running all the race on roads. The cheerleaders at mile 8 ish where really good to see i think more races should have them a definate boost. Did not expect there to be the inclines that there where, slightly challanging but fun. Will be back next year to do it all again
In short: Well organised Challanging 1/2 In full: This was a very well organised race, very helpful and encouraging marshalls, the race was mainly in the country side so perfect setting.. the hill at min 9 or 10 ?? was a tough one made you dig deep to get to the top ,, definately be back next year.

In short: A well organised Friendly race with a couple of undulations !! In full: Once again a very welcoming and well organised race, marshalls where friendly and encouraging, a nice route with plenty of ups and downs, although the last bit at mile 10-11 was tough.
Only problem for me was the start, i was expecting an announcement telling us to make our way to the start or something, as i didnt have a watch so didnt know what time it was, i got caught in the warm up field when the gun went off, so had to sprint to the start and lost a bit of time,, but apart from that it was a very very good day Date of review: October 9, 2006
