In short: Good, well organised race with lots of marshals In full: I can't really comment on PB potential as I was aiming to run at marathon pace, but it felt like it could be fast. There are a few inclines, and a longish hill leading up to 4 miles, but I've been running up steeper in training so that felt ok. There were lots of marshals to show the way and offer encouragement, and pretty much every walker, cyclist and even car drivers I passed seemed to be encouraging us. A great, well organised race, the only downside for me was that I got stung by a wasp somewhere between miles 1 and 2, but I can't blame the organisers for that!! It was nice to have T-shirts available in size S :-) Date of review: August 30, 2011
In short: Nice to run on the track In full: No problems getting into the car park, nightmare getting out (but I'm laughing at the comments saying that's why the GP has gone to Donington - have you ever tried to get out of a car park there?).
For me, the main point of doing it was to race on the track, I guess if that doesn't interest you too much then you might prefer to do a different race. Despite some comments on here I found the marshals to be really encouraging, and it was also nice to get encouragement from the spectators. Was slightly annoyed at one (spectator) that walked into my path, causing me to run into another runner, apologies if that was you.
The medal is nice, the goody bag was let down by the T-shirt. It would have been nice to wear it the next day, but I take a girl's small, not a bloke's extra large size. Date of review: March 18, 2009
