In short: Disappointed In full: I was disappointed with this venue. I was expecting a bit more buzz from the grandeur of the place but the house itself is hidden from the start/finish and is not actually open until April. After the run attempted to walk to the house but was politely asked to turn around. The compere was a bit ‘over the top’. With little incentive to stay after the race, most people rushed to leave, causing a bit of a chaotic jam – but I believe this was worse than usual.
In short: Bit pricy. Too many waves In full: The price (profits) deters people from entering. Routes a bit dull, should include somewhere like Ecclesall Rd where there is more support and better scenery. I think there are too many waves with too much time between them. Are waves necessary? It feels as if there is more than one race going on – ending up with a series of small ones, rather than one big race. Do comments get passed onto the organisers?
However, still enjoyable and something to look forward to.
In short: Good Event In full: A bit warm in places but much easier (and faster) than 2005. Good to see extra drink stations. Hopefully, if the numbers increase could run on the road across the bridge. Date of review: June 27, 2006
