In short: this was my first 10 mile road race. all in all very pleased with my experience In full: this was a nice course to run, plenty of nice views, some undulation at the start but the return part of the run is completely flat.
the pace seemed to be quite fast - i did feel a little pushed at times but overall its was a very pleasant experience and i would recommend anyone running their first 10 miler to do it at Bideford. the marshalling was excellent plenty of water stations and all finishers received a Bideford 10 mile printed technical T-shirt, overall race management i would say was superb :-)
thanks to those at Bideford AAC for an excellent experience - i hope to see you all next year for the BideFord Half Marathon in March Date of review: September 6, 2009
In short: an enjoyable evening race, bit of a tough ending, but well worth the entry In full: this was my first 10km race, i found the race well organised, i set myself a target to get round the course and i achieved my goal. martials on the course were very friendly and helpful, the overall atmosphere amongst runners was good, i will almost certainly return next year and hopefully improve on this years time.
