In short: Excellent race, despite the hills. Brilliant marshalls, very encouraging and smiling,especially for us back markers. Well done to everyone involved in organising the race. Date of review: October 17, 2006
In short: Great race- appreciated it more the day after! Big thanks to all the marshals, full of encouragement, despite having to stand around in crappy weather. Will be back next year. Date of review: February 14, 2006
In short: To echo others comments, chaos at the start. Vast numbers of people hemmed into Millennium Square, long queues for toilets 10 mins before the start, with people pushing into the queue, no organisation whatsoever. In full: Probably the worst start organisation I've seen. The PA announcer seemed more concerned with the corporate challenge runners than the rest of us. We shuffled round back streets to the start, no announcements (does anyone even have a loudhailer?), and eventually we shuffled across the line. My own time was 3 mins less than the official time recorded, so presumably it must have taken that long to start after the elite runners?! Why not start on the Headrow- much more room?!!
BUT really enjoyed the rest of the run, and will be back next year, but hope that the organisers take note of the feedback from runners. Date of review: May 17, 2005
In short: Very windy, which didn't help PBs, and problems on the last k with people wandering round the path near the finish oblivious to those yet to finish, but enjoyable nonetheless, and would do again next year. Date of review: November 16, 2004
