In short: A good small race. In full: I am surprised at all the negative comments. It was new race, in a village. It seems people were expecting the Great North Run!
Whilst the views were not exactly stunning, it was nice gentle course with slight hills along the way. Plenty of water stations, and well sign posted. The mile markers were slightly out - bit so what? It was still 13.1m in the end.
I would suggest posting the numbers in the future rather than issuing on the day - but the queue was dealt with quick enough. Other than that a good small friendly race. Date of review: February 25, 2014
In short: Amazing race - made even more special with the conditions of snow In full: I could not ask for a better race. Never ran the challenging course before, so was a little wary, but add snow - I was terrified. However, all this did was force a great feeling of comradeship between the runners - which I have to say was second to no other race ever!
The marshals who bravely stood out in the snow cheering us on as a credit the club, and a lot of clubs could learn a thing or too by following Benfleet RC's lead. Date of review: January 22, 2013
