“Like this event a lot. easy parking, plenty of room to do pre-race jog and stretches. Bib collection pre race ideal as saves stressful queuing water stations well located either end of laps. Bit tight running around resort 1st lap, but just have to compromise a little until runners get there rythm... was all spaced out ok for 2nd & 3rd lap.. Sponsor stands set up by 6.15am for viewing... some praise for organisers & marshalls too.. well done.. ”

10.0 Great race today! Thanks Abras! · Participation 5 times I would take part again Yes
8.2 Another great ABRaS 10km race · Participation 4 times I would take part again Yes

“I just wish that it was actually a 10km course - I don't know anyone who's Garmin ever records the course as 10km. Appears be easy to fix!”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 11.01.2015
“The course is accurately measured with a pedometer, if you are new to running with a garmin you will not know that garmins work off GPS satallites. Whilst Garmins are reasonably accurate they cannot calculate tight corners, dense foliage and electronic interference. If you run on a 400m track and say do 1k reps you will note the garmin will ring approx. 10m out ie 990m again because of the bends. Hope this clarifies”

10.0 Excellent - Again Colin Greenwood · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“Although I was one of the stragglers the support from the marshallers was much appreciated. Thanks to them and the organisers & sponsors for another great event.”

10.0 Great Job as usual Anja Schwerin · Participation 6+ times I would take part again Yes

“Well done again, Abras, and thanks for all the effort you put into this event every single time!! It is superbly organized. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I was just missing Nick's commentaries during the race this time. And could the ambulance be parked somewhere else, especially when the races are over? It spoils all podium pictures.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 09.01.2015
“Thanks Anja...noted about the ambulance we will make sure they are not parked behind podium for Race 3. Nick was probably tired from flying in yesterday from Europe and not on his usual form.”
