In short: Another classic In full: Another Dr Rob race on the calander is always a good thing. This one is no different. Another amazing race utilizing the best of the Surrey countryside. I had a ball. Many thanks to the fab marshalls (yummy mars bar and maltesers) the Thames Turbo lady who kept me company all the way back, the lovely Andy for laughing at me at the top and all the front runners for their cheery waves, support and encouragement (the true genius of the Dr Rob races) Date of review: March 10, 2008
In short: Lovely day for it... In full: Shame I wasn't really up for it today. This race is a great test to identify fitness losses over the Christmas period, especially if your goal is 26 miles in April. Turns out I should have eaten less and run more.
Many thanks to the lovely ladies at the top of Ebbisham Lane with the flapjack. It kept me going until at least mile 8 when I disloged the last of it from my teeth.
Cheery marshalls and sunshine melting the frosts over the downs added to the occasion. Many thanks to all involved. Date of review: January 6, 2008
In short: Marvelous!... In full: Absolutely everything was, even the hills :o) Although several hundred miles away from home, we decided to do the race on the way back from a weekend 'Oop North' and we're very glad we did.
A special thank you to all the marshalls who were amazingly clappy and cheery. You're all marvelous :o)
In short: Fabulous In full: Can't fault anything. Had a fabulous time. Everything I expected and more. A special thank you to many of the runners who had finished and cheered me all the way to the line. The superb weather was a nice touch too ;o)
In short: Lovely, lovely, lovely In full: Happy cheery friendly marshalls. Great support. Fab weather this year. A friend who lives local so no queue for the toilet plus a shower and sarnie after (although I was told to keep this quiet, they don't want a thousand people queueing at their door next year :o).
A summer 10k really get any better than this.
This struck me as a GREAT race for a first 10k or race virgin. Fast, flat and well supported course.
Will be back next year Date of review: May 20, 2007
