In short: Seen better organisation and Brewery comes to mind..... Poor alll round today... In full: Fora UKA Bronze event should be better - Delays in starting..... only 1 person on combined late entries / on line entries.
Mile markers well out of position
Total confusion in the finish funnels... will be amazed if get the right result......
Very poor effort for the 65th anniversry race Im sorry to say Date of review: September 18, 2011
In short: It may sound daft, but this race is undulating at best, but for me is fast, with 2 fastest time over the distance in 1:26:xx... so it has the potential for speed In full: Well marshalled except for the water station at 5m... where only 1 person was giving out water... holding on to the cups so hard that when you took it, it immeadiatley split... whilst the other was busy filling up 100's of cups... needed at least another person.... if not 2.
Other than that no issues in a good club ran event, I like and am faster over undulating courses..... Date of review: August 28, 2011
In short: Well run muliple event, no real faults, stunning scenery, hills that make you ache, and dont expect a PB, thats for the 30K anyway which on the garmin was 19.39m.... a good trg run Date of review: August 14, 2011
In short: Superb organisation and marshalls, plenty of drinks stations, was just the agressive stones I didn't like esp the one that floored me at 8m.... good hard hilly race, I will be back. Date of review: July 24, 2011
In short: Organisation is poorer and pooer each year... esp the water stations In full: 2nd time now I have had this race ruied by other runners and the inconsideration of throwing water boter bottles to the ground and not to the side...
Mile markers seemed out as early as 5m..... is now a money making machince for charity and not for runners.... £49 for a Photo..... kiss my ................ WILL NEVER DO THIS RACE AGAIN but will support local marathons which know how to treat people like people not sheep... Date of review: April 25, 2011
