In short: When you run to the drums in the tunnel - You'll be back. In full: Great event. As the first time running of the event it was brilliant. Crowds were found all along the route - even for us very slow runners. When I crossed the finish line I always thought I would think never again but have to admit I want to go back and do it again. The one line summary will mean a special something to everyone who ran the race this year and next year it could and should be you. Date of review: October 25, 2011
In short: No surprise entries close so quick In full: Finally managed to run this race after having to pull out the last 2 years to to illness. It was well worth the wait and will back next year. Hopefully next time I'll spot the 10 mile marker, this year it was head down and plod up the hill. Date of review: January 25, 2011
In short: Second time and it gets better In full: Second time I've run this one and it just gets better. All levels catered for on a not too hard course. Whats more where else can you get a cup of tea and a hot cross bun at the end,for free, then a nice XL T-shirt (when your my size thats important) and then a bus right back to the start.
All this for £10 - entry on the day. runliverpool look and learn. Date of review: March 23, 2008
In short: Super smashing great. In full: This is a great race and suits all levels. If there is one tiny niggle its the distance markers. It might be me but some k's seem longer than others. To the fast boys it might not make much difference but to us plodders split's that differ by 1 minute can be a bit disheartening.
Then again I don't have to measure out the distances, organise T-shirts, drinks etc so if thats all I can complain about it tells you just how GOOD this one is. Date of review: June 26, 2006
In short: Even if you don't get a PB its a race worth doing. Organisation was better than last time In full: Even if you don't get a PB its a race worth doing. Organisation was better than last time and its so cheap. People had gripes about the shuttles getting back into town but given that half of it seems to be dug up and the other half closed (for the race) I've got no complaints.
Will be back next year - this time I will get a PB Date of review: March 20, 2006
