In short: AS good as ever. Drinks station seemed a bit late, around 7K? A chip event, but online results only gave gun times.Chip times were printed up after the event forr display. Date of review: September 17, 2014
In short: Unexpectedly cold day. Nice out and back course along the riverbank. A number of cattle grids, these were covered with board, but sme were shiftting and breaking up.The organizers say they will address this for next year. Date of review: March 28, 2013
In short: I've done this quite a few times over the last 20 years, and it's a good winter race. Quite cold today , and what with the bad weather recently my training seriously lost it's momentum, so I ended up with a pw for this event. Date of review: January 28, 2013
In short: Nice 10 miler. Deserves more support. In full: I did this last year,and it was hellishly hot- in Octber! Nearly turned me off this year, but decided to have another go.It's a nice event,much hillier than I remembered.
Well organized,secured baggage an improvement from last year, as was the pre-race information, which included street plan of Sittingbourne showing where the venue was, together with directions on getting there. Technical T- shirt for finishers was of good quality.Sadly the event attracted less than 200 runners, certainly deserves more support. Date of review: October 8, 2012
In short: Lovely rural race. This year a bit hot for running comfort. In full: I've done all of these since 2009,so I obviously think it's a good event.
Great scenery,surprised this year at how undulating the course actually is,the hot weather seemed to accentuate it.The warm weather was a bonus after the run, relaxing on the lawns with some food and fluid was very nice.The results seemed to take a while to be posted,Tuesday for a Sunday event?
Still, I'll look forward to seeing you all again next year.
In short: Lovely rural event along country roads and a stretch off road along The Pilgrims Way. In full: Well organized by Nice Work as usual.Nice village atmosphere.Includes a tough hill to get your teeth into. I've done all 3,and have improved each year. Knocked 2:11 off of last years time.See you all next year. Date of review: September 2, 2012
In short: Still very good. But still tough! In full: I've done most of these since 1990,the route has changed over time,the Waltham route is tougher than the original city centre/Petham one, but more scenic.Still a challenge, well organized by Nice Work. Two minor points:it would be nice to have the year on the medal, even if only on the ribbon. I know it's difficult to find suitable venues,but the HQ area seemed a bit shabby,maybe the grass could have been cut.It would have made it nicer to relax after the event. But putting those little winges to one side, it was a great morning.So,a big thank you to Nice Work. Date of review: August 27, 2012
