In short: Mediocre In full: I was really looking forward to this after Watford was cancelled. Some issues with marshalling - I got a cab from the station and instead of directing the cab to drop us at the entrance where it was a short walk, a marshall directed the cab to drive the 2km around the lake to the parking area! Freezing and extremely windy which is not the organisers fault but the track is quite narrow and I was blown into the path of other runners a couple of times. Maybe the field needs to be smaller - it was really crowded at the start and the 4-lap format makes it really congested and difficult to overtake. Date of review: February 18, 2012
In short: Good PB potential, fun and very lucky with the weather In full: Gorgeous day, smiling marshals and a nice flat track. Having the kids races just before the start was a nice touch!
Only slight quibble is that the smallest t-shirt available is a nice fit on my 6-foot plus partner: the lot of women in sporting events to have to swim around in men-sized sportswear, but this is really a general grump and doesn't detract from a really fun, well-organised event.

In short: Where is the results page? In full: Missing mile markers - I was so confused for the last 2 miles. Would love to know my time, would be happy if someone could point to the results page if on the web! Date of review: August 16, 2009
