In short: A special event In full: Any one interested in running events should partake for the experience of the Stadium and the surrounding park. The course was crowded and narrow in places but what the hell the experience was the thing !!!
In short: This is the best route of the series In full: A late start in coldish conditions. Well organised as usual with enthusiastic marshalls. A good medal which is themed throughout the series Well worth supporting Date of review: June 29, 2015
In short: Well organised event worth a visit In full: I completed this event last year and was not disappointed this year Two minor quibbles however - 1 - the baggage store was not advertised which could be considered next year - I was found a space in the reception room but this was open to the general public 2 - please rethink the medal - the rubber/plastic one left a lot to be desired! Apart from the above an event recommended. Date of review: June 22, 2015
In short: Nothing adverse about this race apart from - In full: How can an organisation like Asda get the number of t-shirts wrong ?????? When I completed the race with my wife with over 600 competitors behind us no medium or small t-shirts were available ??? What went wrong? If on entering the event each applicant states the size of t-shirt required simple arithmetic resolves the problem. Perhaps the organisers should adopt the policy of some other races which I have completed when the t-shirt size is shown on the race number? It was obvious that either the organisers order wrong or competitors were demanding sizes which they had not ordered. I await Leeds???? Good medal though!
In short: Brilliant In full: I have completed this race for the last few years. The weather was glorious this time being both sunny and cool.The medal was the best yet. This is a lovely little outing on a holiday weekend. Long may it continue. Date of review: April 7, 2015

In short: Lessons will be learnt ? In full: An unusual venue worth a looking at. Parking and facilities were good as would be expected in a national theme park. Organisation was good and some marshalls were very supportive. However points of concern were that when threading through the park several pinch points existed - no worry if you were at the back but not ideal if in the pack. The race distance, supposedly 10k was way out being only 5.7miles ????? The "gold" medal was the worst medal I have ever received with a self adhesive paper cut out on its face. This review is not a criticism but constructive advice for the organisers if the event is run again.
In short: A well organised Christmas event In full: This event attracts a large number of club runners and is welcome at this time of the year. I had difficulty on registering onto the event by e-mail but I was finally helped by the web person.The t-shirts are cotton (ugh!) and a medal would have been welcome.That apart a good event.

In short: An annual must do event In full: Excellent organisation with some of the best marshalls I have encountered ! All were supportive and cheerful despite the cold and wind. Date of review: December 16, 2014
In short: the weather did not help! In full: This is a review of the 10k race only.The prevailing weather ensured that the race took place in rain,wind and mud. The organisation was OK except for the following. The marshalls were poor (apart from one!)and showed little interest in the proceedings.I am also not sure how the timing was calculated as I assume that the starters gun was the commencement of the race and the bar code swiper was the finish? This method was a bit hit and miss and therefore did not reflect an accurate time. Could have done with a medal? There was no goody bag - not that I am complaining. The tee-shirt had to be collected off a pile which was situated in an open fronted tent. Overall not a good impression! . Date of review: November 11, 2014
