In short: Fairly fast but nos scenic & definitely not that flat! In full: Not the most scenic of routes, twice round East Kilbride isn't that exciting, and it's definately not as flat as it's made out to be.
And re the goody bag - how many runners want a full-fat can of fizzy juice at the end of a race & a mars bar?! Something healthier would be a better option. Also, the leaflet for "stopping smoking" in the goody bag gave us a laugh - not many runners smoke!
However, can't fault the organisation, and the t-shirt was better than the usual run-of-the-mill offering.
Overall, a decent, well-organised race. Definately PB potential if the weather is right. Date of review: June 22, 2009
In short: Decent enough run In full: Bit of a hiccup before the start. After waiting in the queue for ages to enter the carpark, I was told to go back out and drive down to another area to park. After finally getting parked, I used the longish distance as a warm up! Other than that, the race was fine, a couple of wee hills near the start but otherwise fairly flat. Good spread at the end, and good encourangement from the spectators. Date of review: May 22, 2009
In short: Those hills! In full: 2nd year of doing this race, & last year I said "never again". How short my memory is! The hills were as hard as I remember them but it's a great wee race, extremely scenic and well organised.
