In short: Great Yorkshirerun or Sandall Castle In full: No contest - why pay for a race at a ridiculous price when you can go to sandall and enjoy a different race. Well orgainsed from car park, marshalls etc. Start is a bit hectic to the first path and few places where you just can't overtake. Very welcoming, with a good PA system you can actually hear.
Good race so if you are bored with sheffield route try this one. Date of review: September 6, 2009
In short: 2nd year now and even persuaded my partner to run this In full: Just about right numbers so don't share too much of the good stuff as more will want to race it !!! Well organised, second lot of toilets helps. Overall a good race. Date of review: May 10, 2009
In short: Firs time but recommended In full: Lot hilly than expected but hey a bit boring if it was just flat. Overall worth the trip and whilst not a pb course and challenign in parts, it was off road so actually quite good for beginners. go on do it next year. Date of review: April 13, 2009
In short: Wish Dronfield was flat In full: Sent too much time in the pub this week. Considering the numbers and the variance in abilities I think it was well organiased. Great support all round ( well done dronfield). Hilly than I expected but lovely day. Only grumble was lack of water at mid point and the finish was too tight - should have finised on the road. By the way there was water at the finish Date of review: March 15, 2009
In short: Enjoyed the last race of the year ( or is it ) In full: Unfortunately man flu fri/sat but decided to run, struggled a bit and suffered for rest of week. Top run by the pushchair, was that the baby's PB ? I should have kept up with him. Worth a look in 2009 Date of review: December 17, 2008
In short: Why not use chip timigs to stop the problems at the start In full: Clearly no lessons learnt from the feedback last year. 1000 runners down a small country lane, bound to be problems. No time/clock at the end and think about 40 secs difference from what is showing on results. Why so many runners can the use chips- Not worth the 1.50 hrs travelling so I will give this one next year. By the way 1000 runners and one little shed for toilets ! Unfortunately no atmosphere on route. Date of review: November 30, 2008
In short: Overall one for anyone's 2009 race calendar In full: Two moans - insufficient toilets and the start was not that well organised, loud hailer might have helped. Apart from that worth the trip, more ups than I expected but enjoyed the race. Marshalls were good but yes the last 400 m was tough but what a challenge Date of review: November 18, 2008
