Expensive but on fully closed roads

Uses part of the half marathon route to the about 2 miles then swings round and loops back.  Nice route which takes you out of the city centre.  Lots of crowd support and plenty of marshals.  Always good quality t shirt and medal.  The water stations don't have sports tops on the bottles so beware you wear a lot of the water.  Race date was moved in 2017 so as not to clash with other local races.

Amazing views just have to get to the top of that hill first!

Organised by Run for All and typical of their races.  Pretty expensive as races go but it is a city centre start and finish and all on closed roads.  The crowd support is amazing and there isn't a single part of the route where there isn't someone out cheering you on.  Lots of the local running clubs come out to cheer you on especially at the top of the hill at the half way point.  Thoroughly enjoy the route even if half of it is pure unrelenting up hill!

Amazing scenery

Fantastic half marathon starting in Worksop town centre and then going out into the National Trust owned Clumber Park. The last mile is also through the privately owned Worksop College so you can have a good noisy

PB potential

Super flat course only a couple of little inclines up and over a road and then going back to the finish line.  Lots of marshals out on the route but there are places where there are no spectators.  Don't get caught out like some were though by thinking the finish line is where the start line was!  It isn't but another 500m down the road!  It's a bit tricky finding you way around the uni campus though when you are dropped off from the coach park.  Slick park and run system though

Great finish line

The start line had everyone herded into very narrow lanes which desperately needed widening!  At about the half way point the route went into a huge housing estate which wasn't particularly scenic!!  The finish line is great up at the top of the hill though.  Parking and traffic management needed seriously looking at as there were massive traffic jams getting into Lincoln as they had signed the car parks through roads which they had already closed.  Not the best start!  It felt like the first time the race organizers had put this race on with all the traffic chaos but reading the reviews it's the same every year.

Nice city centre race

Good run through Sheffield on closed roads.  Crowds all the way round.  Expensive for a 10k but it is a city centre race.  Lots of Traffic Management staff out on the route along with marshals cheering everyone

Good 10 miler

Nice to do a local 10 miler.  Killer hill in the middle of course but all doable.  Good marshall support

Nice out and back

This race was held last year in city centre and it's a shame the local council wouldn't let it use the same route but the route around the water sports centre was as good.  The price is pretty steep compared to other races but you are donating to charity and it's a city centre race on closed roads so it all costs a lot to put on.

Super friendly

Well organized 10k with amazing support from locals who were out in force to cheer us on.  So many marshalls out there cheering as well.  The super mile along the back stretch was an unusual twist.  I will definitely be entering again next year
