In short: This is the 3rd year I have done this race and didn't enjoy it as much as before. In full: The race was well organised but delayed start meant standing around for even longer in the cold.
Thank you to all the marshalls and spectators that stood out in the rain and wind to cheer us on - it was much appreciated.
Paying £3 to park was a bit much. I was lucky enough to be able to leave the car park by about 12.15 so didn't have to queue. However I feel that the race entry fee was high enough for the car parking fees to be taken from that. The "professionally managed car parking experience" didn't appear to be any better than last year or the year before.
Having said that I enjoyed the race, although the last two miles felt as if I was going backwards.
Thanks again to all the supporters. Date of review: October 30, 2007
In short: A rather boring course and not very well organised. In full: I know the course had to be changed because of F&M but could have been made more interesting. Also would have been a good idea to let people know via the website that the course was going to be changed. Kilometre markers were not accurate and it was not a true 10k (approx 9.2k). Feel this could have been better organised.
Will be back next year if the course is the original course otherwise will not bother.
In short: Excellent race and brilliant organisation. In full: First time I have done this and did it as a relay team. Next year would love to do the whole thing. Brilliant organsition. Well marked and well marshalled course. Thank you. And a lovely medal. Date of review: September 30, 2007
In short: A very well organised race. Rather challenging and very warm. In full: Agree with previous comments about slower runners starting near the front and not being able to pass. Childrens races this year a nice touch. Will be back again. Date of review: September 12, 2007
