In short: many thanks to all In full: i was involved in a road rage incident which could of been nasty if it weren't for the marshalls on cycles who intervened on my behalf. Apart from that this race was excellent with water stations every 2 miles and by golly we needed them too, as it was a hot morning, everything went like clockwork. Date of review: June 13, 2006
In short: where's the soap In full: now i am sure the the organiser jinked this race by saying well it will either "RAIN OR SUNNY" forget the latter and yes it SURE DID. ONE BIG THUNDERSTORM, HAIL Torentural rain and everyone got WET but did we care NO. We all pulled through and i am sure everyone who raced this one got throu. mind you you should of seen us like DROWNED RATS. I am doing all 3 of the series. ps this is the 5th time i have done thsi race and on the 3rd time it rained (O what a surprise) :-)) o and errr another personal best 44m.40s
In short: Good Course In full: this route could be a good course when it has been raining, i can understand why there are NO water stations (its all up hill and down Hill) :-) my kind of race Date of review: May 7, 2006
In short: The Sussex Beacon hmmm good Race In full: Personal Best 0f 1hr.40m.54s last half mara was 1hr.43.05s
where do i start 1) nice little touch with the mobile phones to let us know about the race, weather and results :-) 2) this is my third time i have done this Race one word (Excellent) 3) water station where in the right place but think we could have had the grape juice at the end as most of the bottle i saw had about 3/4 of fluids in them. What A waste 4)only two complaints a) the rain but hey this is England & we have to expect that i suppose in Feb b) The wind after we turn back along the seafront from the Laggoon.
In short: One Word "Excellent" In full: Well i thought that i had put my rating to this Race. well i am NOW. Its like this the park is my Training Ground and use most days to do my training in, which includes Heartbreak Hill, now i am use to the hill, for the race in 2006 is it possible to go up it rarther than down it please :-)) just signed up to do it this year (2006) and i would like to mention my trainer who puts me through hell every wednesday morning as i mentioned part of my training consists of 6 heartbreak hills thats 6 up and 6 down.
hope to see you all this year (2006) Date of review: January 21, 2006
