In short: Loved those balloons! In full: A very enjoyable race, lots of spectators and well run. The only minor downside was the start with way to many slower runners near the front. I stood just in front of the 1hr 30mins sign (as i generally finish under that time), why can't people just be a little more honest?
Top race all the same though! Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: Good for beginners & a nice medal In full: I enjoyed the morning despite missing out on the pb i had planned for. However there did seem less participants and a litle less oomph than last year about the whole thing?
In short: Tough but fun In full: I really enjoyed this friendly race but the soft sand was difficult. I gather there was a T shirt but i didn't see any. The cake stall was great though! Date of review: September 18, 2006
In short: Shame about the timing. In full: Messy start (grading?), chip timing over 30 secs out and course felt a little long to me. However very friendly, well marshalled, good parking and lots of support meant it was still a nice morning. Date of review: June 26, 2006
In short: Nice but wet In full: The start was a bit of a mess and i spent the first 3 miles navigating past slower runners who were more optomistic about finishing times than me. Marsahlls cheery though especially the young girl near the garden centre, she cheered everyone up. I last did this race when it went through the city centre and the crowds were far larger.
In short: Small friendly race In full: Small friendly race in warm conditions, however i lost 30 secs at the end as myself and a few others took the wrong turn just before the finish, apparently the marshall wen't awol. Date of review: September 28, 2005
