In short: Organisers Comments In full: All, thanks for braving the elements today, apologies for the long walk to the start, we had to get to the other side of the roadworks to make sure we didn't have congestion. Any constructive feedback welcomed as always. Regards, Tewkesbury AC Date of review: November 4, 2012
In short: Notes from the Race Organisers In full: All, Thanks for turning out again for the Guy Fawkes 5, weather was fantastic. If you have any constructive criticism's we would love to hear them. One point I will betaking away from this year is the lack of toilets, not sure how to address this, however we will have a think about it. Kind Regards - Tewkesbury AC Date of review: November 6, 2011
In short: In response to the points raised above In full: Q: Where do we go for numbers? A: These can be picked up in the Gymnasium of Tewkesbury School - Address is on the Entry Form.
Q: Where's the start? A: The Start is approx 1/2 mile away from the School towards Tewkesbury.
Q: When should we go to the start? A: Arrive at the start approximatley 10 Mins before the race starts for the briefing.
Q: Can we leave anything at the start? A: Well yes, but at your own risk under a hedge.
Point: Giving numbers out in the hall works well but clearly post the categories A-D, E-J etc on the wall behind the desk, not on the desk itself to ease congestion. Response: Agreed Proper signs ordered for 2011.
Point: Remove benches from the queuing area - they were dangerous. Response: Agreed, will not make the same mistake this year.
Point: Provide more toilets. Response: Unfortunatley we are limited by the school's resources.
Point: Make it clearer where the start is in relation to the school (not everybody knows this). Response: Please see the course map below
Point: Order sufficient medals Response: We had a selection of momentos in 2010, medals were the most popular, so will be ordering more this year
Point: Use some sort of PA system so those of us at the back of the hall could hear the winners' names. Response: Will see on the day, depends on the announcer. Date of review: August 15, 2011
In short: All the snags from last year sorted, with improvements to boot. In full: Have to say, from the comments from last year (some justified some not) 2:09 have pulled it out the bag, good organisation, nice new sections on the route, excellent finish, good Marshalling. Long queues for the chips (turn up earlier), and a water stop at 12 Miles should possibly be moved to 10 Miles, apart from that perfect. Date of review: May 10, 2009
