In short: Friendly race and well organised onece it had started In full: Good course and very well marshalled. Good and friendly crowds and a good-sized field. The organisers were overcome by the numbers at the start though. 15 minute delay and really long queues for the bag drop. Date of review: March 15, 2008
In short: Nice and flat and improved on last year In full: Lovely morning and a good flat course. Has improved since last year, two laps rather than three and on wide tracks at the start rather than skinny paths.
I thought there were enough marshalls and although there was only one water station it's only a 10K! Not having km markers was a problem though - and is my GPS up the spout or was that 200m over 10K? Date of review: September 16, 2007
In short: Isn't it dull when everything goes like clockwork In full: The pre-race organisation was a shambles (hopeless website, champion chips not arriving, race numbers changing at the last minute) but on the day the organisation was so bad as to be funny - for me anyway. I had my GPS on and so ran 10k in a pretty fast time - it's a good fast course.
But for those who relied on the organisers to be able to manage the basics of marking out 10k and keeping people on the course it was a disaster. So bad that some people even found the chaos amusing.
Will I be back next year? Possibly they were a nice bunch and things can only go up from here. Date of review: March 26, 2007
