In short: Challenging race, Great Marshalls. Super! In full: ABSOLUTELY LOVED the hoody top - what a very pleasant surprise. Was expecting something that just gets thrown in the draw!! A top that can actually be worn in future! Great marshalls, very postive and vocal. Super nibbles at the end too - very impressed with the energy bars, banana bits etc being handed out. The only slightly negative point would be to have a few more toilets, but this a problem whatever race you go to. Overall, a great race, well organsised and lovin' the marshalls enthusiasm - it really does make a difference. Thanks! Date of review: March 28, 2010
In short: Fab Race! Look for ward to it each year! In full: As always a great race, well organised and a a wearable t shirt that you can use afterwards in training. The water bottles on route were much bettre than plastic cups. If i were to nit pick, id say the getting in and out of the school was a bit chaotic, everyone going in and out of doors and corridors in all diffefrent directions, created a bit of congestion! But this really is very minor. Well done RR on a another successful race. Date of review: November 15, 2009
In short: Wat too hot, but still an amazing epxperience. In full: Just to defend the front end runners a bit regarding the water, i was 8.00 miling pace and all the runners i saw were only taking one bottle of water. So if they ran out for the slower runners, this would be down to just not enough being available from the organisers. The race was amazing though, although the heat did start to really get to me around 24m. The crowd were fatastic, so many more out than last year, due the weather this year compared to last. The crowd do tend to move into the road a bit in a quest to see their runner coming, or waving their banners and signs right into road, i nearly got hit in the head a couple of times and had to duck!! Marshalls should keep an eye on this. Organisation was faultless and all the FLM people were so encouraging and friendly. Date of review: April 23, 2007
In short: Better goody bag please! In full: I would like to re-iterate on a few on the comments made. A goody bag with less advertising and more useful bits and pices. Like a banana or energy bar, a long sleeve top at this time of year would be more useful. The best bit i can say about the goody bag was the actual bag!
A bit odd i thought, that the clock at the end was quite far away from the actual finish line. Date of review: February 5, 2007
In short: Supporters on route could have been more enthusiastic! too many cars around. The start could have been clearer, rather than someone just shouting " ready, steady, go". A gun or siren would have been better! More small tshirts pls, none left for us! Date of review: December 13, 2005
