In short: Agree marshalling/org excellent. No roadside support except for three lovely ladies sitting outside their house. Clearly upset a few visitors by inconveniencing their stroll on the prom. Showers welcome but freezing! Broadstairs charming, Date of review: March 5, 2006
In short: Love the route - sort the toilets! In full: Not my first Towpath and despite the grumbles about the uneven surface (which did result in a casualty from my club) I do like the course. generally organsiation is good, parking in a residential setting is well handled and things are easily located. However year on year the ladies loo situation gets worse. With no tree areas near the start there is little opportunity to go alfresco for the desperate and loads of us were getting that way as the clock ticked by and we were still in the queue.
Thanks to Fullers for their sponsorship but can you go back to the classy tumblers rather than the butch beer glasses. Date of review: April 4, 2005
In short: Fantastic In full: Race Day +3 and I still hurting but I am so glad I had a go. Six of us crossed the line together as we decided this was a one for all and all for one event, not competitive. The spectator support is amazing. Not everyone kept their shoes in the bog though!
