In short: Lovely day for a run! In full: Well organised and friendly event. Was worried after reading about the problems from last year. Pretty flat course with a harsh hill at mile 8. My only gripe was the narrow streets at the start. Could they have pens for runners aiming for different times as I spent the first mile weaving in and out of slow runners/walkers. Overall a very enjoyable event and a PB too. Date of review: April 28, 2013
In short: Local, friendly race with PB potential. In full: Well organised for a first time event, with a flat, fast route. Friendly marshals and the sun was out! Made a nice change from running the park run route. Date of review: April 22, 2013
In short: Traffic/parking nightmare, rubbish medal, nice route! In full: First off, I feel really sorry for the people unable to compete due to the traffic jams. Me and my friend had to abandon the car and leg it to the start line. Not ideal preparation!
The race itself was good, with lovely scenery. Some good support around the route, particularly the girls at mile 11. Managed a 5 minute pb too.
The medal was awful. Just a generic BHF medal with no recognition of event or distance. Very disappointing!
Luckily my girlfriend had managed to park at the racecourse so we were home before most people had managed to get out of the car park.
Will probably not do this event again. Date of review: March 18, 2013
