In short: ideal benchmark race for spring mara In full: Bumbags? I can see what they were thinking, nice change from a medal or T-shirt, but mine's destined for the charity shop. Date of review: February 17, 2010
In short: Hard work but great event In full: A half is plenty on this course! organisers of 'big' city halfs take note - good medal, t-shirt, pasty and entry to Eden Project for £15! I think it costs about £15 just to get into Eden anyway. If it wasn't for the course, it has potential to become a national highlight. Date of review: October 23, 2009
In short: Good test In full: This club runs good events (having done their half late last year). Good organisation and momento. Course challenging, didn't particularly like the final 1/2 mile around the housing, difficult to keep momentum at that late stage. However managed just sub marathon goal pace and taking into account heat and hills was pleased. Date of review: April 6, 2009
In short: Very well organised and a PB In full: Very good briefing pack and marshalling - seems like a well organised club. Have entered their 20 mile in April as FLM training (I'm not sure why more clubs don't do similar distances at that time).
Course was far from flat and was not particularly scenic - but ended up with a PB, so no complaints. Date of review: December 14, 2008
