In short: Epic race - Not to be taken on lightly In full: Excellent day out - helped by sunny (if windy) weather. Not a race that is easy to pace yourself on due to the terrain, but the scenery was great and everyone was friendly. Date of review: March 17, 2007
In short: Probably The Wettest, Windiest, Coldest Race I've Ever Done In full: And that was just the warm up lap - just the one, couldn't face anymore! Circuit potentially fast on a warmer, dryer but more importantly less wondy day - very exposed - its a motor racing circuit afterall. Excellent cafe facilities - much needed dryness for today! Enthusiastic organiser, commentator, and participants (you had to be to go out in today's weather. Date of review: March 4, 2007
In short: Excellent race, halped by unseasonally warm weather, flat country lane course, easy access and good organisation. 10 minutes off my PB didn't do any harm either! In full: Now, I knpw I've only just got back in to running races after 5 years or so away from the sport, but I'm sure some things have changed a bit. Two weeks ago I was presented with a towel as a race momento which I thought was a novel change from the standard t shirt or medal, and this week... a loaf of bread! Full marks for originality there. OK, so it was actually barabrith and hence had a local relavence, and actually we don't race for the momentos anyway - do we?
As for the race itself - a big thank you to me from the guy from one of the Welsh clubs who paced me round for 10 of the 13 miles - just sorry I couldn't return the favour at some point! The course was excellent, and relatively traffic free, marshals were numerous and very effective, result - 1 happy PB performing runner, even with the hangover of a cold from the preceeding week.
Oh, and the bread - tasty, thanks. Date of review: February 18, 2007
