In short: Fantastic!!!! In full: Can't believe it was their first race!!!! wonderful route, challenging but beautiful scenery. great marshalling. brilliant goody bag. some really nice touches (medal engraving / Being blessed before the run / bacon sandwiches) Highly recommend - I will be back with more club members next year!!

In short: Great Race - even better goody bad - shame about the start In full: This race was my fist 5 miler and it was fantastic. Great organisation and superb goody bag (easily the best I’ve ever had!!), well organised, my only comments, the start was congested – it could be with being about double the width and an additional water station would of been nice around 3-4 mile point. Great atmosphere and I’ll be back hoping for a faster time and hopefully slightly colder day :) Date of review: May 14, 2008
In short: Good Course, slight problems with the start - I didn't know where it was. last 2km on the path next to a road was a little hard to pass other runners. finish in park was a good touch. parking was my biggest issue... Date of review: May 5, 2008
In short: Good venue - possible improvements with different organisation?? In full: My first race, didn't know what to expect but comments: 1-parking - why did they organise it that way? 2-start time - a little annoying I had to wait in the rain for late entrants. 3-start - took me at least 30 secs to cross the start as I started near the back 4-course - surely better to run around the lake than just up and down one side? also meant support was very limited except at the start/finish 5-good bag - a little slim
Over all I enjoyed the experience, didn't finish last (a personal goal :)) and found the friendliness of other runners fantastic - I will be back for more races - at this venue and others.
