In short: Nicely organised race with a cheeky little slope at the end In full: The only gripe I have is with the cups of water that I found impossible to get down my neck.
A really nice race with a good atmosphere (although some of the supporters could do with a smile!). The scenery was good and it was lovely to have lots of bends to hide what was ahead. Date of review: March 29, 2011
In short: Badly organised and expensive In full: As most of the reviews have said, this was a blooming expensive race and a lot poorer than last year. The start was really badly organised, with the buses very late and no signs to car parking, nor anyone directing to spaces. Once at the start there weren't enough toilets and nothing to tell us (or nobody to show us) to the pens.
Brilliant marshalls on the course- which was very lonely at times on those country lanes. With reduced numbers on last year (I think down to 25%) we spread out a lot and it was a lonely time!
Great finish and commentator calling your number in. I do know someone that did the half kilomathon that had to walk from the drop-off point (back where the buses picked us up) to the stadium for a final lap- WHY? That was a terrible finish to the half. Date of review: March 22, 2011
