In short: Excellent series In full: I have done this series for a few years now. Nice Work's races are always brilliantly organised and I really enjoy them. the only issue with this series is the Ashford Youth shouting the occasional 'funny' comment (and they were nicking the signs this time!) but apart from that love it! Will be back next year, and the year after and the year after....! Date of review: September 15, 2014
In short: Great race! In full: Spot on organisation by Nice Work as usual - their races are always brilliant. Lovely scenery, plenty of marshalls, great support en route, and I loved the chocolate biscuits at the end. I agree the kids race cutting through us was not ideal (mostly because I got overtaken by 8 year olds!) but apart from that great! See you next year. Date of review: August 28, 2012
In short: Lovely race, really enjoyed myself In full: Thoroughly enjoyed the race, thanks to all the organisers/marshalls etc and what amazxing crowd support. Thank you to the residents of Hastings, particularly the lady with the bag of Refreshers!
But I do ache a bit today, but that is my fault due to not running much lately having bronchitus!
My only complaint is....give it up with the horse brasses guys, medal please :)
In short: Excellent race, but.... In full: I really enjoyed the race and as my first 10mile (despite having done loads of other distances) I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Marshalls were really nice and the views were amazing.
However despite arriving at the school at 10am, in what I feel is plenty of time, the marshall informed me there was no parking left. I know the race info said to park in the local streets but it didn't say they were all restricted parking! Found a space eventually and got my chip no problems, but then joined the loo queue - 2 ladies loos are not enough for all those people so I (and at least another 11 other ladies) missed the start.
Apart from that all was good, but the logistical issues mean I will probably give it a miss next year. Starting a race wound up is not the best start :) Date of review: February 3, 2010
In short: Excellent race, thank you! In full: This is the third time I have run this race and thoroughly enjoyed it as usual. Very quick course, and a great charity to support as well. Excellent organisation, no problems at all. Date of review: September 5, 2009
In short: Lovely race but please start earlier! In full: My friends and I had a great time at this race, and the fete was good fun afterwards. Lovely sunny day but that just leads me into the only 2 negtives - another water station at half way and an earlier start 10am say would have been good please. Apart from that its all good and I really enjoyed it thanks. Date of review: June 29, 2009
