In short: Excellent friendly race with a fab atmosphere In full: Enjoyed the warm up walk to the start line. Amazing to see the bridge full of runners! A challenging route, but great support along the route and happy, vocal marshals helped.
As always, not enough toilets. There was a big queue at the ones closest to the start. I should have stayed and queued as stopping to queue at ones at mile 6ish cost me a pb (which would have been amazing given the 'undulating' route)! Date of review: August 26, 2014
In full: My 3rd time and the route the best yet. Worst part was getting out at the finish line. Weather lovely, great support along the route, which I found especially helpful in the Roath Park area. My only grumbles were people walking all across the road (happens in every big race) and the bottlenecks where it slowed to a stop twice. Those parts of the route couldn't cope with 18000 runners.

In short: Great race for both beginners and more experienced runners In full: A most enjoyable race - a bit of road but plenty of cross country. Beautiful scenery on a lovely sunny day. Very friendly atmosphere. I highly recommend it for both beginners and experienced runners. Date of review: September 9, 2012
