In short: Friendly atmosphere, well organised event In full: This was my first 10k race so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was very impressed. It was a nice atmosphere, the organisation and marshalling were faultless and I was surprised by the number of people offering support along the route. Well done and thanks to all involved Date of review: May 13, 2012
In short: Well organised race. Shame about the weather In full: Second time here and once again well done to the organisers and a big thankyou to the cheerful supportive marshalls. Last year the weather was lovely but this year it was awful. Running the uphill section from mile 6 to mile 9 into the wind was horrible! Still, that is the British weather for you I suppose. The atmosphere was very good. This is a very friendly event and I was surprised how many locals turned out to cheer on the runners despite the rain. Date of review: April 29, 2012
In short: Fantastic, well organised event In full: What a great course. My second marathon which I had intended to be my last but I enjoyed this so much I will be back! A big thank you to the organisers and volunteers who did a great job. The whole thing was superbly well organised and faultless. Date of review: April 16, 2012
In short: Great day out with a fantastic atmosphere made by the crowds of supporters In full: This is the largest event I have done to date and it was amazing to see how many people came out to support the runners. It was really uplifting and kept me going for a PB. The finish in the stadium was great and so were the goodie bags. I would definitely recommend it to anyone - a race to convert non-runners!
On the downside the race village was overcrowded at the start, number of runners made overtaking difficult in first half of the race and my garmin made it 13.21 miles! Date of review: April 2, 2012
