In short: A Faultless 10k, Breathtaking Views and Superb Organisation In full: For a large 10 you really can't fault this, superb course with sweeping views over Swansea Bay. As well orgaised as you will ever get a large 10k, and a really good atmosphere.
See you all next year ! Date of review: October 12, 2009
In short: Lots of Hills in the first Half, And first 600m come to that. In full: Why run up the Big Dipper Sand Dune when you can hide in the bushes at the top ? This is what plenty of saddos seem to have done this year. Other than this disgraceful behaviour the race is a classic. Date of review: December 16, 2008
In short: Unrivalled Views, Modest Entry Fee and PB Course In full: Well, what a superb race.
With its unrivalled bay views, super fast course the Swansea Bay 10k is a sure fire winner. I really will retun to this one with a smile, and if I don't blow up by the turn again you should have me shot !
Excellent organization, well run and an event for which I will definately be back. Whilst there was a queue for the free shampoo later on (do you really enter a race for free shampoo ? if not why queue for it), I am sorry to see race organisers blamed in previous reviews for traffic conditions in to the city and for only providing 1k's worth of a 4 lane start !
I also love the late 1pm start, it makes it easy for me to come back to Swansea fro my home race, and get home in the same day. It also makes the event far more family friendly and makes it easier for me to have a pint the night before !
In short: Once Again, the 10k that has it all ! In full: This is a PB hunters dream, with a blisteringly fast course that on a sunny day has the best bay view in the world. Don't miss out, this is a must-do event. Date of review: October 29, 2007
In short: Lightening fast course around the most scenic bay in the UK. Best 10k Anywhere In full: Late 1pm start makes it easy to travel down to Wales for the day. A glorious sunny day on the most beautiful bay anywhere makes for one of the best 10k races anywhere in the world ! Wide road start makes it easy to go for a good time or just pootle along taking in the views. Everyone everywhere must do this at least once. Date of review: September 26, 2006
