I ran it this year 2015 it was great organisation and not too busy. Good support from crowds. a few horrid hills! Great marshall on garden hill - he ran up hill with runners and then back down to run with another runner...
Fantastic medal, T shirt - nice to have different sizes. Goody bag average.
Depending on weather this event could be nasty, but I would do it again
Unfortunately I have to agree with you all.This was the worst event I have entered. Sorry.
First though thank you to the marshalls, especially the 2 at the first road junction. Shame weren;t marshalls on every road crossing!
Family came to support me but no cafe facilities - this is poor on wicksteads part. But other races in the middle of nowhere have provided catering vans - tea/ coffee baccon buttys - I am sure supporters and runners would have appreciated this.
Confusion over exact route - 3 x .. but park bit x 4!
No signage - to the start. Where the finish point was? No time on show! No milage signs on course. No beware runners on course.
BUT MOST DISAPOINTING WAS THE MEDAL - i ONLY ENTERED BECAUSE I THOUGHT THE IDEA OF A MEDAL ENGRAVED WITH 1.11.11 WAS FANTASTIC. VERY DISAPOINTED TO GET MEDAL WITH OUT THIS OR EVEN THE YEAR ON IT!
Good luck with organising other events! I hope you learn from this.
