In short: Nice training run but not as good as in previous years In full: I've always enjoyed this run - the marshalls are friendly and it's a nice, varied undulating course.
But this time around, I felt that the organisation wasn't quite as good as in previous years. I was surprised to find that there was no chip timing this year especially as it's quite an expensive run. And we started late as there weren't enough toilets and people were still queueing (I gave up after 25 mins).
Despite these relatively minor grumbles, it is a good race if you're training for a marathon or a half. I just hope they bring back the chip timing for the Spring race. Date of review: September 5, 2011
