In short: I had never run a proper race before. Today I have signed up for 2 more! In full: I am an absolute beginner to running, and my fitness comes from other sports, but i loved this. Everything about it was brilliant.
After agreeing to run for charity I was slightly sceptical as to whether I'd enjoy it, but the atmosphere on the course was fantastic, with crowd roaring through the city centre and households out on the side streets, banging pots and pans. The organisation was good, I paniced as my chip and number did not arrive through the post (thanks royal mail) as I have moved and had a redirection, but upon finding the info hut all was sorted in a couple of minutes.
To cut a long story short,apart from escaping the city afterwards (2 hours), I enjoyed it and will be back for many years to come. Date of review: October 29, 2007
