In short: An excellent race - good atmosphere. First time for off road - nice course and masive plus the race started on time! Marshals were great. Will definately be putting it on next years calendar. Date of review: March 1, 2012
In short: Good but could do with improvements In full: There appeared to be a great deal of confusion at the event. On arriving at Blenheim (on foot) we found it difficult obtain any information and direction from the marshalls - not even knowing where the start line was.
The marshalls were reasonably good & the show ws a nice touch on such a hot day. However the marshalls didn't seem over enamoured towards the later stages in the race and infact at one point a rather large volunteer was happily blocking half of the pathway & smoking a large cigarette exhaling directly into the path of the runners. A number of people around me seemed to be equally afronted at his behaviour.
I was very disappointed at the medal - which was a generic BHF medal I would expect from any 10k run. I thought that they should at least have made an effort to mark the race.
