In short: Very hilly but still a good race In full: Road closures were a nice touch, felt like a much bigger event than it was. Good organisation too, thanks to the organisers and marshalls. Date of review: June 24, 2009
In short: Fantastic - even with the weather In full: First race in ages and I loved it - even with the weather (nothingcould be done about that). Fantastic marshalls - loved it. Date of review: June 7, 2009
In short: An excellent organised race - but Long Eaton isn't pretty! In full: I really like this race, it's well organised, a good price and a really nice t-shirt....but Long Eaton isn't the prettiest place in the world and a personal gripe is that I never like racing on a field - it tends to lack a sense of having a course! (does that make sense?).
Still Long Eaton RC really do the best with what they have.

In short: Definitely not a PB race but excellent nonetheless In full: Today this was a very slow race, the run is pretty much uphill all the way (even if the gradient is minimal), the sun beating down made it even more difficult.
Still, I loved it - ran a couple of minutes slower than my normal 10K time but given the conditions was well pleased with this as I did a negative split.
The organisation was really good (even if the finish seemed a bit disorganised) still would definitely do it again.
Thanks to the organisers. Date of review: June 8, 2008
