In short: Lovely flat course, good facilities, brilliant organisation, chip timing In full: This was a really well organised event.
From the well-marshalled car parking, the excellent facilities, secure bag storage, pacer runners, water stations, chip timing, to the great encouragement from the organisers, this event was arranged with runners in mind. It is a nice, flat, wide, car-free track; definitely PB material. Should attract both beginners and pros, and had with a really friendly atmosphere; only my 2nd 10km but it all worked like clockwork.
Best bit - the guy on the loudspeaker encouraging finishers home by name as they approached the finish line. Could do better bits - 1. I needed a 40 min pacer!!! 2. Official event photos still not posted after 4 days... :-( I'll be back for another PB in 2012 though!!! Date of review: August 3, 2011
