In short: A good charge out, who cares if it was short. In full: I get fed up with garmin wavers moaning about short this and short that. Enjoy the run. You were happy with distance measurement before garmins were around. They are not 100% accurate, get a life!! Date of review: February 13, 2011
In short: Highlight of the year In full: I wasn't as quick as last year, but turned a years best time so not too unhappy. K markers still a problem. Most annoying to be clipped by a cyclist on the run to finish, others had similar problems too. All in all though, good race. Date of review: November 22, 2006
In short: Oh dear! In full: They need to get the start right. They need to get the finish right. I was very very annoyed to have to stop some 10 yards from the finish because of the queue. How they will be able to give me a time I really don't know. It would have been nice to have the t-shirt stand and water nearer the finish too. Date of review: October 9, 2006
In short: Hard work but probably worth it in the long run In full: Quite a challenging course but not as hard as I had expected it to be. Only Gripe is with the K markers. Putting them at 3, 5 and 8k wasn't helpful for measuring progress unless I just didn't see the others. Date of review: September 25, 2006
In short: Very pleasant although hilly In full: A lovely course,well organised. Only downside was the fact that I had not run for 3 weeks so the last hill was a real killer for me. I'll know better next time. Date of review: September 18, 2006
In short: Not too bad - actually enjoyed 'the hill' In full: Went well until my shoes became very uncomfortable at about 9.5 miles and I ended up having to walk for a bit and hobble in at the finish - mental note, wear nearly new shoes for longer races.
Parking was a nightmare, however, the course was a good challenge. Date of review: March 14, 2006
