In short: It made me feel like a real runner! In full: Great race, three laps so it is easy to pace yourself. I managed to knock three minutes of my PB and got my first ever sub 50 minutes. The marshals were friendly and encouraging. I got lapped by the two quickest runners but that’s fine because usually I don’t get to see them at all!
In short: Challenging and rewarding In full: Very hilly for the first 5k, but the sense of satisfaction you gain from getting to the top is worth it. The last 5k is quicker and you can more than make up time here. I managed to get a PB and it has given me the confidence to try that bit harder for another one on my next run. I will be doing this one again. Date of review: April 28, 2008
