In short: Superb organisation In full: My first GSR but one of the best organised 'big races' I've done and that is despite the torrential rain and subsequent mud bath at the end! I had a good run despite lack of training and there is definte PB potential there (my first official 10-miler so guess it was a PB!)
Thank you very much to all the organisers for running everything like clockwork. And thanks to all the supporters who braved the elemnets to spur us on.
Soggy feet on way back to the car park but tip for anyone wanting a quick hassle-free get away, park in the city centre, was easy!
Great, will definitely be back. Date of review: October 24, 2006
In short: A friendly very well organised race In full: Thank you to everyone invovled in making it such a smoothly organised race. Plenty of portaloos, plenty of parking (if a little slow getting out after). Good support and although running up/down the same road 4 times can be a bit dull it makes it all the more fun for supporters as they can watch you run past 4 times. I had a great day and Exeter is a lovely city to visit too. Topped off with a PB on what is not a flat course I will definitley be back again one day. Thank you! Date of review: May 2, 2006
In short: Good organistation, good atmosphere, shame it was so expensive In full: Probably wont' be back for two reasons, 1. The cost 2. the lack of intersting scenery, especially as a two lap course. But did enjoy seeing some of the pretty sights of Bath in the sunshine afterwards. Date of review: March 23, 2006
In short: just tough enough In full: not as tough as I had expected apart from the scary muddy downhill sections. Hope not too many injuries were incurred. As always huge thanks to the marshalls for guiding us all. A great sunday morning run, will definitley be back. Date of review: February 13, 2006
In short: So much better than last time! In full: A stunning day if a little foggy in places. But a scenic route. Thank you to the organiseres for changing the route from previous years. This was much nicer. ANd a huge thank you to everyone who was standing out marshalling in the freezing cold! We runners were suitably warm but standing must have been chilly! A nice souvenier T shirt again. And thank goodness for the water supply at then end this yera. All in all very enjoyable small friendly race. Date of review: November 21, 2005
In short: Great day, thanks to everyone invovled in the organisation In full: My first time at the Bristol half and really enjoyed it. Almost equalled my PB despite a serious lack of training, so very pleased:) Only really moan would be the narrowness at several points in the first few miles, I did a lot of hopping on anf off pavements to pass people. But I'll be back next year for sure. Date of review: October 3, 2005
In short: well organised, friendly atmosphere In full: Well done winchester, a good race and well marshalled despite traffic on roads. A few more hills than some were expecting but I was very happy with my time for a first 10km road race. Date of review: May 23, 2005
