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
In short: Lovely day, lovely race, lovely burgers afterwards In full: Well done to all at Nice Work, a lovely race, really enjoyed myself. And to have a bar and a BBQ afterwards and a good band to listen to while the sun went down really made it for me.
The course was really pretty, very scenic and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Date of review: June 1, 2009
