In short: A good start to my running year In full: This is the fourth event I have entered with Ultramarathon and again I had a good day.
It was unfortunate the park's water supply had been turned off throughout most of the park due to the weather. This apparently was the reason for not having their start/finish flags up. ( Flag bases needed water).
I still had a cup of water on each lap and at the end a cup of orange and a chocolate biscuit . Not the orgainisers fault park facilities weren t open. It doesn t matter where I enter a run there are always parking charges.
I left my bag along with lots of others in one of the marshals cars, where it was kept warm and dry. Thankyou again ULtramarathon, I believe your 2012 New Years day event will be at Stanwick Lakes, could you confirm this as I will be attending, oh a great unique medal....thanks Happy New Year Date of review: January 3, 2011
In full: I entered this event after having entered the Pumpkin Run last year also orgainised by Ultramarathon, which incidently I have entered again this year and will still be attending. I found the figure of 8 course easy to navigate. I ran the 10k so just ran the course twice as instructed by the marshal that started the race.I was aware of people around me messing with their ipods so no wonder others didnt hear the instructions. I completed the course in a good time,my Garmin fore runner confirmed I had completed a 10k course.As for the entry fee I thought £17 quite reasonable,the orgainisers have to pay the venues for allowing them to hold the event on their premises,medals,marshals etc, I ve paid much more for other events. I also found the parking to be reasonable, you expect to have to pay for parking whenever you run in an organised event, again I have paid more than £2 to park for a day.So thank you Ultramarathon for an enjoyable run.. see you on the 31st !!
