In short: A Grand East Anglia Run In full: A great event. The only glitches were crowded first K and a car being allowed on the course by marshal (It seemed the driver was being stupid). It would be tragic if the event didn't run next year. It organised by the council and they do a great job of promoting the town and building community spirit. Date of review: May 8, 2010
In short: great run up north In full: A great run spoilt only by lack of toilets at the start which meant my 30 minute wait resulted in a start from the back of the field as I was then too late for entry into my zone.
In every other way i relished the challenge and enjoyed the day even though I spent over an hour waitin to leave the car park without turning a wheel Date of review: October 8, 2009
In short: If it ddn't inspire a non runner they have no soul! In full: My first race (I'm 46!) a nice flat course with diferent views thro historic Lynn, river views and some town centre activity. Very supportive crowds made the day special. Seemed to be well organised but I have nothing to neasure against! The only thing that worried me was the entry stipulated a (very generous) time limit. Even though I was well able to complete in half the time it did give me the impression it might not be for novice fun runners. How wrong I was and how glad I was to have entered. It was an inclusive event and I suggest it made an ideal springboard for those wanting to dip their toes into the water (so to speak). Even my couch potato wife was thoroughly inspired by the atmoshere and ease of access to different parts of the course so she could see lots of action. Great. Thanks for getting me out!
