In short: Very enjoyable first off-road 10k In full: I didn't mind the dogs, as someone else said the iPod wearers got in the way more!
Generally good organisation/marshalling, however, I was a bit annoyed at the start being delayed by 10 minutes due to people still making their way from the car park to the start. Since it was well advertised that there was a 5-10 minute walk to the start why did the majority that had arrived at the start in plenty of time and were nicely warmed up then have to stand around getting cold because of the few who were late?
I'm still unsure if the race was longer than 10km or if the 10km marker was in the wrong place! Date of review: November 8, 2010
