In short: Not one for the sites, but plenty of atmosphere to keep you going In full: Stadium start/finish - Crowded and could have utilised all the track better rather than one side. Doesnt finish when you expect it too either. PB potential Lots of support on the course Inclines were short & sweet All downhill from the 8 mile mark Get there early, parking a nightmare Date of review: May 15, 2006
In short: Not as flat as you might think, but a scenic course. Plenty of encouragement and local interest. In full: Parking a bit of a problem if you want a quick get away and ot easy to pass early on if you start at the back, unless you start weaving, but these are the only negatives I can think of.
Well marshalled, good support, plenty of toilets, food and drink if needed and reasonably priced, good water stations, momento and goody bag. All in all quite pleased with the race & organisation. Date of review: March 21, 2006
In short: Slippy, sliddy, muddy, hilly. Well marshalled. No goodybag/medal/T-shirt. Lots of changing scenery. In full: Bit of everything, with lots of different surface. Mud, grass, road, bricks, hills, steps.
Marshalls - Plenty of them, very friendly and loved the lady with the jelly babies.
On the down slide - no mile markers and my wife took a small detour due to red/white tape going missing. No medal/goody bag/drink/energy bar (apart from water) Date of review: February 27, 2006
In short: Tough but enjoyable. Well organised on the whole. A definite for next year. In full: Well marshalled apart from the early arrivers being sent further up the course to start, then sent back. Nice scenic course with good support. More hills than I was expecting, but added to the fun!! Minor gripes and I stress minor; Water/drink at the end would have been nice. Being told there was a car park close the finish would have saved to-ing & fro-ing back to the car. Date of review: January 19, 2006
