In short: Lovely run...pity about the transport In full: An absolutely beautiful course, quite flat, no big hills. Found the last 2km's felt very long, especially when you can hear the stadium sounds but cant see it. Very disappointed in having to stand and wait for 1 hour for the shuttle bus back to the start. Felt a bit abandoned, not sure of the reasoning behind this and there were no marshalls about to offer help or to tell us when the bus would be arriving, this was a slight dampner at the end of a very good race which was otherwise very well organised but it would not put me off doing it again.
Fantastic goody bag, looking forward to tucking into my tins of Baxters soup! Overall really enjoyed it and will be doing it again next year! Date of review: October 5, 2009
In short: Very well organised In full: Very happy that this year they decided to do seperate starts for runners and walkers, this has always caused problems in the past. Althought dissapointed that people ignored this and still walked amongst the runners getting in peoples way. Overall very well organised and always an enjoyable event to take part in.

In short: Big Hill! In full: Was a lovely scenic course, but one HUGE hill just after the 1km mark and very up and down after that! Had no chance of getting a PB on it so just tried to enjoy the scenery! The start of the race was almost half an hour late, believe this was down to people turning up late for their chips, felt that there should have been a cut off time for this as it was an extra half hour for us hanging around waiting to start. Overall well organised and enjoyable. Date of review: June 16, 2009
