In short: would do it again if organisation and safety was improved!! In full: This run could potentially be fantastic, however it was extremely disappointing. Due to present weather conditions, it was trecherous, and dangerous in parts. many runners were falling over and I myself have been injured as a result of the steep slippery hill we had to run down (This should have been taken out of the route due to the weather.)
Some marshalls were very unhelpful, and were not there to guide the front runners who had been sent the wrong way due to incorrect route markings. This meant that front runners had to run over a mile further, consequentially not finishing justifiably within their PB times.
The start and finish line was unacceptable and extremely spectator unfriendly! I am not sure where all of the money went for this race as I have competed in many other races paying similar prices but have never ran in one that was so badly organised.
The Junior run was also disorganised. Due to the age of some of the children, i question whether this race should have taken place at all. Children were slipping over, and manmy hurting themselves.
I am deeply disappointed overall. Date of review: January 3, 2010
