In short: Well organised fast race, Couldn't ask for more. In full: Pros: Well marshalled, plenty of water on route (also the odd person offering vaseline), each mile clearly signposted, fast course, 10k split time provided in addition to overall times, text of chip times received shortly after race. Plenty of parking. Plenty of water and soft drinks handed out at end of race. Goody bag contains nice tech T shirt. Rugby club serving tea etc before and after the race, also serving burgers after the race. Friendly atmosphere.
Cons: Bit crowded at start but can only be expected with 5,000 runners. Slow going for the first half mile with the road overcrowded and a struggle to get past runners and reach a decent pace. Start and finish are in different places and it felt a bit of a walk (on tired legs to get back to the car park. Date of review: March 28, 2011
