In short: A few teething problems being their 1st race, but had a great feel to it. In full: Set up was great, many, many people doing their 1st 10k. A real fun feel to it.
For the more serious runner, you would need to get to the front as the first 2k is very, very tight making it hard to overtake. It is a trail race.
They were apparently let down on the day with the water, so did their best in the circumstances. It was fairly cool so during the race I don't think you really needed to take on any water.
Off road course, with inclines and sharpish bends mean that this isn't going to be P.B. material although having said that, I made it 400m short on course length which did give plenty a new P.B. Date of review: July 26, 2010
In short: Great setup, really enjoyed the location and the race, even managed a shower afterwards, which was brilliant. Results were announced very quick. Will be back next year. Date of review: July 11, 2010
