Sir Roger Manwood's School, Sandwich
Well organised in beautiful town
I beat the heat
Great organisation, friendly Marshall’s, beautiful route, to hot but beat that , the only thing I would like to add was that given we knew it was going to be a hot one another water station would have been safer and helpful. Thank you will do it again xx
Well organised and supportive!
A fantastic route, running through the town twice, wiggling down the medieval streets and beyond. 2023 was a hot day so many opted for a non PB day but any other weather then it would absolutely would be a PB course. Thank you Barry for another fabulous event!
Nice scenic 10k around Sandwich
I always love Sporting Events' races. They are well organised and marshalled and have great medals. I would recommend this race. It was a nice, flat, scenic course. However, I would like to suggest some guidance for those giving out water at the halfway point. There was only one person giving out water, and 2 people sitting behind the table. It was a hot day and I was desperate for a drink. I had to grab one off the table and might have accidentally knocked another couple of cups over. A couple of people in front of me didn't even manage to grab a drink as they went past. Then, I was upset at the end when I was denied a second cup of water. I hope there can be better direction for those handing out drinks next time, especially on days when the weather is so hot. Thank you.
Great flat run with a welcoming atmosphere
I'd recommend a little choc/fruit snack to accompany the water at the finish line.
An excellent, very well organised run with a great atmosphere through the town and on the way towards Sandwich Bay.
Unfortunately my timing chip had not been removed and collected at the finish. Could you please let me know how and where I should return it . Thanks.
Well run event
Nice flat route
Maybe more water stations a number of people were running out of their own water due to the heat of the day
Nice course, too hot
I think an additional water station was required probably at the Sandwich Bay turn, mainly due to the heat.
Maybe 1 more water station needed in hot weather - otherwise thoroughly enjoyed
I live in Sandwich so nice to be able to run round the town. A nice run.
Everything about the race and day was brilliant. The marshals were great and helpful :)
A very good, enjoyable and well organised run. Can thoroughly recommend.
Very well organised with an ideal venue - plenty of off-road parking, playing fields to warm-up etc. Liked the wave starts, as that helped to avoid congestion in the first kms. Nice, flat route with mix of road and trail and plenty of depth in the field
Lovely running in the country off-road and through the town. One of my favourite runs
Lovely route through Sandwich and surrounding lanes, friendly event.
Thank you for another great event that I really enjoyed. I like the wave starts as it enables the runners to be separated out as the initial lanes are a little narrow. However, my only niggle on this occasion was that I was in wave 3. I had caught the back of wave 2 just outside the school and then had to navigate around other runners all through Sandwich.
Nice course, excellent organisation, will be back next year
Great run great atmosphere
Would recoomend this run to all abilities
