In short: A Great Charity event In full: but lost the fact it's a race as well. Pen allocation is very poor, so if your a serious/ish runner, you spend the whole race dodging people. Atmosphere is good with the plenty out to support the event. South Shields is a nightmare to get out of. Not the best Great Run event, Manchester 10k far better. Date of review: October 9, 2008
In short: Well organised Half Marathon In full: Great race starting in the beautiful Millenium Square. Course is definitely undulating, can't remember too many flat bits. Good support around the course, plenty of water stations and marshalls. Nice T-shirt(though a bit generous sizewise) and medal. Well done Leeds.
In short: Hot Hot Hot In full: A day in the sunshine at Blackpool. A well organised fun run for various charities. This event gets better every year, the organisation, marshalling, drinks all well organised. The crowd were great and a medal to boot. What more can you want. Well done Blackpool.
In short: Lovely run at breezy Blackpool In full: As per all the present races at Blackpool, this race became a 2 lap race instead of the advertised single lap, as the over turned ferry gets in the way. Lovely sunny day, ideal for running part from the breeze along the coast. But a good run and nice weather, well worth the trip. Date of review: March 30, 2008
In short: Good local race In full: Another well organised race by the Wesham RR. Only thing they can't organise was the weather but it is November. Mind you reading the Forum a few still got PB. Goody bag ok not as good as last year would prefer a momento otherwise an excellent race. Date of review: November 25, 2007
