In short: AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE - NEVER BOOK WITH PEAK PERFORMANCE EVENTS In full: As above. Avoid at all costs unless you are a magician who can magic up adequate toilet facilities, competent marshals and correct signage, then you might be ok. A good race if you feel like guessing the route halfway round. These chaps have a thoroughly well deserved reputation for putting on terribly organised events. Date of review: November 2, 2014
In short: Good race, well organised, good goody bag In full: Good run overall but the view wasnt the best, alot of housing estate and a long length of the bypass. Unsure why it was called the Bridgnorth SEVERN run as, apart from glimpsing the river twice as we crossed it, it appeared to have very little to do with the Severn. This was a disappointment as it was the main reason I'd booked. Ah well. Very random items in the goody bag, including six heinz sauce sachets... not unwelcome, just odd.
Well organised, marshalls everywhere. Timing appeared on the web almost instantly as far as i could see.
I would do it again, but based on how well organised it was but don't expect much scenery. Date of review: October 26, 2014
In short: Booked for the city aspect of it. Course changed to rural lanes at great disappointment In full: Changing to a rural route ruined this for me. I run on lanes everyday. Didn't want to do it for an event. The route was ok but not as originally advertised. Shame Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: A LOT of club runners. Bit cliquey In full: Not sure as to whether I'd do this one again yet, felt very clubby. Pretty sure I was in a tiny minority not being a club runner. Also the fact that the fast downhills were on such rough surfaces, which was not really highlighted before the morning of the race, was quite dangerous - although St John's were in the village it would have been impossible for them to get to any injuries quickly. Organisation was good and all organisers very friendly, facilities were good and a BBQ afterwards Date of review: July 7, 2014
In short: Hilly. Good views of Cefnllys. In full: Race well marshaled and course well marked. Water was very welcome on the hot day. Well organised on the day but poor communication in the weeks/days preceding the race. Friendly enough and a demanding course, hilly in places too. Would do again. Date of review: May 18, 2014
In short: Hilly they said... call them hills? that's a speedbump! In full: Well organised, friendly enough. Shame you can't physically leave until the race is over. Oh, and if you live in Wales, this is not undulating. Though I appreciate others may find it quite hilly. I would do it again seeing as I had a PB here Date of review: May 11, 2014
