In short: Well organised and route well laid out. PB potential and would definately do the race again In full: The weather was a complete nightmare, with the hailstorm twice mixed in with very strong winds. But the course layout and atmosphere really helped the race through. I really enjoyed this one, beating the weather and getting a new PB makes the whole thing more worthwhile.

In short: Good event, well organised. Brilliant weather and spectator support In full: The race was tough to start with. The hills for the forst 4 miles do take a bit out of you. The only thing that spoilt it was not being allowed to have your ipod music, this was not made clear when entering. Even though some people were still using them any way Date of review: October 26, 2008
In short: Bit congested at the start, too many runners not enough space. Butt soon spread out. Great race for a PB. Definattely back again next year In full: With so many runners this year, it was going to be big. The weather was superb, the start was a bit cramped to say the least. But once you got through you could get down to business. Will do again next year no doubt. Excellent atmosphere. Date of review: July 5, 2008
