In short: Great course and well marshalled, shame no goody bag! In full: The course is a nice one with plenty of support. Well organised and marshalled. However would have been nice to get a T-Shirt or good bag as well as the medal. Date of review: March 21, 2010
In short: Got a PB In full: Didn't really enjoy it being 2 loops however the weather was perfect for it and got a PB! Few cheeky inclines too. I thought that the marshalls did a great job stopping the traffic etc. Would probably do it again but not the most exciting course I have ran. Date of review: October 18, 2009
In short: Fantastic Atmosphere and Support! In full: Thoroughly enjoyed my first GNR for the fantastic atmosphere (oggy oggy oggy!!!) and great support the whole way around from the supporters. Didnt bank on the heat and the shower pods were a much welcome relief. Also the little kids spraying us with their garden hose was too!
Only downside was the 5hr WAIT to get out of the carpark at the finish......what an absolute shambles!!!! Especially as I had a 6hr trek back home! But on the whole will be back next year and learnt where to park to avoid a delay. Date of review: September 22, 2009
In short: Shame about the HUGE T-Shirt In full: Was a good race on the whole. Some of the spectators needed prompting to give us runners a cheer and a clap. Weather was great too. The T-shirt size was abit of a joke especially to petite people like me.
In short: Fantastic race In full: Dispite the rain it was very well organised and very friendly. Enjoyed it except for the narrow start and heavy rain. But great atmosphere and definately doing it again next year. Date of review: October 2, 2006
In short: Excellent race In full: Definately doing it again next year. The route was great, organization brilliant. Plenty of water stations along the way. Bit disapointed that we had a shoe bag instead of a t-shirt. Date of review: September 4, 2006
