In short: Great race, good fun, muddy, but good fun! In full: A very wet and skippy first half of the race but very enjoyable all the same. A free half pint of beer at the end was a nice touch too. Missed it last year but so glad I made the effort to go this year despite the awful weather. Date of review: July 20, 2012
In short: Great run through the City In full: Great to be able to run through the city but could be even better.
On the plus side the park and ride ran like clock work, the scenery was great and made even better than the weather. The course was a bit narrow in places, you can forgive the narrow streets, but the contra flow was a bit awkward towards the end making it difficult to pick up pace and pass other runners.
Could really do with more toilets next time too, the queues were huge!!! I know some runners missed the start because of it.
Not sure what happened with the goody bags at the end? Not the be all and end all I know but they should at least all be the same! Loved the medal though and I'll definitely be back next year. Date of review: March 12, 2012
In short: A great race in the February sunshine! In full: A great race, well organised, lovely scenery too. A very enjoyable run around the country lanes, helped by the sunshine, plenty of hilly bits but none too challenging. Will definitely run this one again! Date of review: February 26, 2012
In short: A great event, well organised and a very friendly atmosphere. In full: Good organisation, lots of marshals outnon the route, very friendly. Bit of a tight start which could be improved but otherwise a great race.
One or two minor points could make it even better; such as improving the start, using your bib number for the bag drop, and may be posting the numbers out before hand. All minor points, which didn't detract from a really good run.
Looking forward to next years race! Date of review: November 7, 2011
