In short: Fantastic Race through a great country park In full: Very well organised, well marshalled, great support, plenty of parking, very scenic tracks and a medal as well. A very enjoyable evenings fun which I will be running again next year. Date of review: June 23, 2010
In short: Great Race but Parking was a nightmare! In full: Entered the half marathon and followed the instructions that were sent to me with regard to parking. Got within a mile of the parking area about 45 mins before the start of the race however we (me and my girlfriend who was watching) could not get near the carpark or find the enterance - neither was clearly marked - fortunatly my g/f dropped me close to the start and I made it to the start only because they delayed the race start time from 9:30am to 9:40am - from what my g/f says others were not so lucky and were still driving around trying to find parking after the race had started.
The race was good and scenic, very hilly which seemed to go up but not down!? Lots of water stations but some were pretty chaotic. Medal was nice but id expect that for the £30+ entry fee
Not sure Id do this race again unless they sorted out the parking - my tip for next year would be to plan to arrive at least an hour before the start. Date of review: September 27, 2009
In short: Very picturesq route In full: A nice, challenging run to do on a bank holiday weekend. The run takes in a great view of Poole Harbour. The tracks were very sandy and narrow in places which made it difficult to overtake. Definetly not a PB course but well worth doing and you get to look around the country fair after. You get a medal for finishing (not bad for a 5k). Easy place to find and ample parking. Will be going this again next year. Date of review: August 30, 2009
In short: Hard with great surroundings In full: Very well organised, one of the best ive been to. Great course but tough going, very hilly in places. The goodie bag was the best ive ever had! Definitely do it again!!! Worth the high entry fee Date of review: July 3, 2009
In short: Scenic, fun and very well organised! In full: Great run, from Bmth pier, along the beach front past Boscombe, up a zig zag (nice and tough!) Back through Boscombe town and along the beach front to Bmth Pier, well organised, great crowd and a great goodie pack, 3 NRG bars, a t-shirt AND medal! Worth the above avg for a 10k entry fee Date of review: April 5, 2009
