In short: The weather dampened the day but not the spirits it would seem. In full: Nice flat course and fast too after the first couple of kilometres sorted everybody out. The rain was out in force and one can only compliment the marshalls who did an excellent job under the circumstances with enouragement all the way round. Date of review: June 7, 2009
In short: A race that doesn't really deliver its full potential. In full: Poor organisation, narrow routes, MP3 users, chaos near stadium all put me off doing this again. Nice try though could do a lot better.
A nice technical T-Shirt doesn't really make up for it I'm afraid. Date of review: April 26, 2009
In short: Enjoyed the race, the venue, the catering and the facilities. In full: Reviews led me to believe it was going to be a killer but it turned out just right for me. Have noticed from reviews that the dogs will start 15 mins next year which I think is a good idea. Not convinced about the accuracy of the course distance. Excellent marshalling by the cadets, a pleasant atmosphere and the catering tents mean I definitely will do it again. Date of review: April 26, 2009
