In short: A great sponsored walk - no chance to even jog all the way unless you start at the front. In full: This is a popular, fun event but don't expect to be able to run/jog all the way, the pavements are too narrow and there's too many people walking in large groups. It would be great if there were more road closures and so more space. In the end though, it's a good laugh and (hopefully) raises lots of money for a good cause. Date of review: December 14, 2014
In short: Good course - did you make the marshals watch Bambi's mum die? In full: PB, nice course, happy with the goody bag .....so can't complain too much.... BUT did you make everyone who was marshalling watch a sad film at 9am today? seriously, it makes a HUGE difference to the tail-end charlies (60mins +) who may have raised sponsorship (like me for example :-) to have the marshals say an encouraging word as one passes.
Kudos to the locals (? or random friends of other runners) round the course, you were the only ones clapping and cheering - thank you!!!!
Well organised kids 1k fun run. Date of review: May 13, 2012
In short: Needs to be better organised In full: No distance markers (despite being advertised), water point after 2.5K (approx) and then nothing for the rest of the race, race was at least 1k longer than the 10k advertised according to 2 independent GPS measurements and (as if the above wasn't enough) the GRUMPIEST marshals I have ever seen on a race - seriously, would it have killed you guys to have cracked a smile or said some words of encouragement?
Still better off than the Sunday mixed-sex race, they apparently ran out of water completely.... Date of review: March 29, 2012
