In short: fantastic race, shame about the finish In full: This race is awesome. Friendly atmosphere, great terrain etc. but this is the first year that there's been a negative point, and that was at the end of the race - There wasn't enough space to cross the finish line. The queue up to bags backed up to across the finish line. Other than this, the race is top notch.
In short: Cracking course and a top run In full: Rain stayed off and it wasn't that cold so the run was excellent. Really enjoy the course as always. Only niggle is the waiting in the freezing cold water in the trough. Guess it's part of it. Date of review: November 16, 2010
In short: Overall a good race but too many runners at the start. In full: The organisation is fairly good but the congested start needs work. Everybody had a tough time with heel kicking and budging in as there were just too many people in the first few miles. With 12,000 runners going through the centre we need to seriously look at the time bands we are starting at. This would avoid the frustration of the first few miles. For example, It's ridiculous to start at the 1-hr 30 marker when your PB is 1-hr 50 Date of review: October 2, 2005
