In short: Another great event In full: This is the 2nd event I have done that have been organised by Bug run and it didn't disappoint again. A very well organised event that offers fantastic value for money. My only slight gripe (but I won't hold it against them) is that everyone had to queue up on the day to get their race pack. Perhaps a collection address or something could have been given to collect prior to the day.
All in all a top event and I can't wait to do the next one. Date of review: October 2, 2011
In short: Good event, just a shame about the pre-planning! In full: The race itself is very well organised and is fantastic for non-runners as a first. I agree with those who previously mentioned the slower runners walking after 500yds etc. I was in the white wave and passed several people who were running at a 1hr plus pace or walking soon after i started (please be true to yourself and start further back). My only other gripe was around the race pack's, mine finally turned up a day after the event so I had to go into Manchester to collect a new one and still haven't received any apology. The least that the organisers could do would be to email out to those effected saying sorry!
In short: Amazing day In full: I lost my GNR cherry this year and it was well worth it. The atmosphere alone makes it and the sight of the sea just before 12 miles spurs you on. I would recommed this to anyone to do...even just once. Date of review: September 21, 2009
