In short: Nice organization but is it really a 10k? In full: Great, friendly organization but very disapointing to find out it was common knowledge amongst runners who had been here before that the race is short. I got 5.96 on my Garmin (I know, not infallible) so why not call it the Hoylake 6 miler? Date of review: September 9, 2012
In short: Weather aside the pros were the marshals and people of Manchester who turned out in awful weather, the con was the baggage collection. In full: Fast course (although a few miles of semi-trail running which I hadn't banked on), great support from the people of Manchester who turned out despite the weather but the organizers need to look a few things esp. the baggage collection, "shambles" would be an understatement.
