In short: An excellent event In full: I have nothing to complain about as the event was good.The course was mildly challenging and the parts where other competitors were seen coming the other way was a bonus - that is , you knew where you were in the scheme of things. The marshalls were excellent and encouraging. The village was good with a variety of food outlets which appeared to be doing a roaring trade. However -two points of concern which I hope the organisers take on board for next years event. 1 - the t-shirts were cotton ???? 2 - AGISM RULES !!!!!!! Whatever happened to the prizes for the 60+ and 70+ ??????? Come on guys , running does not cease at 50 !!!! Date of review: August 19, 2015
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.
