In short: Fast flattish course In full: Positives: Good race and atmoshere. Enough water stations.
It's already been said about the mile markers. Really bad I'm afraid as I didn't see any until 4th. Did 3 mile cool down after and still had difficulty seeing them as some were sideways and small. People are trying to assess their pace so need large markers that are easy to see. Toilets a joke as such large queues and people trying to go still before the start. Getting to the start, this was a problem even if you left early as there was a large bottleneck just after the woods in the field. There were a lot of people here when the gun went off including me and when there are people trying to squeeze through a gate one at a time it is very slow. Took 2mins for me to get to the start and then was behind 2000 runners. This was the end of my going for a good time. The organiser shouldn't have started race on time if there are hundreds of runners still not lined up and should have anticipated this. Date of review: March 23, 2006
In short: A race worth doing only a few ups but definately a fast course. Race organisation was very good and nice to provide free tea/coffee after as it was bl**dy cold. Date of review: March 14, 2005
