In short: Fantastic organisation, good location but too crowded! In full: I really enjoyed this race, very well organised and I loved the whole North Vs South thing. My only criticism is that staggered starts may help the whole congestion thing - it took me until the 5k mark to really get in my stride. That meant I missed my PB by 1 minute. Otherwise would recommend!
In short: Hills anyone? In full: Wow. Read in reports about those hills but didn't quite expect them to be so harsh! Especially in 30 degrees! Well organnised, water on every mile, still really enjoyed it! Nice goody bag at the end which is unusual! Date of review: July 19, 2006
