In short: Well worth the trip from over the Pennines In full: A very friendly event on a course which took in panaramic sea views and some pleasant off-road woodland tracks. Well supported with the advantage of Sewerby Hall with attendant tea room and facilities. A decent medal and a seasonal easter egg for all finishes. The event was over two laps with a one lap race being available.Even the kids got a race. This event was for a charity and is well worth supporting. Date of review: April 10, 2012
In short: one of the better events In full: The organisation could not be faulted. Perhaps a more stringent check of who is in the correct pen - however despite that many entrants have an expectancy above their station ! My Garmin read as 13.22 The 'hills' are easy and for a first timer not to be worried about. As a spectator my wife reckons it is the best she has ever been to . Date of review: April 4, 2012
In short: Race distance wrong In full: The start was overcrowded resulting in difficulty accessing the relevant pen. The worst goody bag ever - was this item a joke? The distance of this race was incorrect - is this excusable in an event of this prestige. Good support and worth a visit. I thought the t-shirts were pricey. Date of review: February 20, 2012
In short: one of the best In full: An excellent event that I would without hesitation recommend to all experienced and new runners.The course is FLAT ! One of the most generous in that one received a superbly designed technical t-shirt , a medal and one of the best goody bags around. You would be dog-matic not to give this event a go next year.

In short: A well organised race which was mildly challenging with the undulations In full: Organisation was good with excellent parking facilities for those who arrived early ( as recommended). The toilets were a bit sparse . The late start was not too good on the cold morning and this aspect could do with a coat of looking at. A good course with just about the right amount of undulations to keep one interested with encouraging marshalls. A startlingly coloured technical t shirt which is ideal for those darker evenings. Recommended! Date of review: December 19, 2011
In short: one of the better events In full: The organisation was very good and the medal outstanding.It was a shame about the wind which to compound matters was in your face when travelling up the slight incline.Good support.
In short: Well worth the trip from over the Pennines In full: A very friendly well organised event and despite being generally on the promenade and seafront road interesting.Good support from spectators at the finish.Recommended. Date of review: November 15, 2011
In full: An unusual event - it is suprising that in the dark there is a total misconception of speed. This is one that any runner should experience both for the fun aspect and the charity. The lights from the headtorches around the lake were both and atmospheric and magnificent. Date of review: October 31, 2011
In short: well worth the visit from up"tnorth" In full: The walk to and from the car park was not a problem as this was publicised prior to the event. Lack of ladies toilets was an issue but I understand this was beyond the control of the organisers A very friendly event which I wholehartedly endorse with the proviso that for a "first-timer " it is a little toughie.
