In short: 4 DAYS OF GREAT FUN AND GREAT RUNNING! In full: The tour this year increased to a 4 day event which is brill, 4 different races on 4 different terrains. Great organisation, great marshaling and all of this for just £50 is super value for money. Date of review: August 26, 2016
In short: A really great event back after too long away! In full: The Tour of back, amazing! Three consecutive days of running meant a challenge for sure, but one lots of different types of runners completed in their own way. Different terrains meant that there was never a dull moment throughout the Tour of Tameside. A medal at the end of each day was act, and for those runners who ran all the days we also got a tech t-shirt and Full Tour Memento which is just superb. Def doing it again!!!

In short: WE LOVE THIS MCR 10K RUN! In full: Super event that starts and finished on the Regional Athletics Track at the Ethiad (where Man City play!).

In short: Sunny Salford 10k - a run you must do in the Manchester-area!!! In full: I ran this race as a casual 10k runner and loved every minute of it. The race starts and finishes in the impressive MediaCityUK Piazza area (where the BBC and ITV is) so sets it apart from lots of other runs in the area. Well organised and a great goody bag with tech t-shirt, medal, snack bar water and more. Especially loved the Athlete Village activity for us runners and the kids! Date of review: August 26, 2016

In short: A well organised race. A good course that undulates around mainly countryside. Marshals and volunteers were excellent. The medal and t shirt were good. I'll be back next year. Date of review: August 25, 2016
In short: Worth getting out of bed on a Sunday morning for In full: I decided on the Saturday night to enter this race and turned up on the day with my £15. I was met by a friendly bunch who were willing to chat and answer any questions as well as take my money!
The course is undulating but not overly challenging. The heat on this Sunday made it so! It is an easy course to follow and at turns they have signs and marshals. The finish of the 5K is a little confusing as there is a bit of a loop but I was directed the right way so no major issues.
No PB, but I wouldn't expect one in Richmond Park on a very hot Sunday morning!
Nice medal, a snack bar and a cup of water - All perfectly acceptable and the things you want after a race! I will definitely be back to run this one again. Date of review: August 24, 2016
In short: Into a gale for 9 miles, but just wonderful In full: Well, I was back for my fifth consecutive Cross Bay, and it didn't disappoint!. How many races have to move the start 8 miles further north due to dangerous conditions? Really glad that this was back to being across the bay again after last years' foray into a 13 mile loop, it really adds to the sense of achievement. What it did mean was that for the first 8 or 9 miles we were going into a headwind of 40mph plus at times, and there seemed more water to negotiate than there has been in some years. This was the toughest of my 5, but none the less enjoyable. Suggestions for possible improvements would be: a different medal/t-shirt each year, a separate finishing funnel for the walkers (and perhaps different medal/shirt for them too?). Other than that it's perfect in every way. Someone put a nice video on the Cross Bay Facebook page this year - if you want a flavour of what it's like take a look! Date of review: August 23, 2016
In short: Excellent Event In full: An excellent event, as always with the Pride Run 10K. Many thanks to all the organisers and volunteers who make it such a great day. Special kudos to the people who fill the bagels for everyone at the finishing line, and the people who pick up the cups left around the water station. Truly thankless tasks, but much appreciated by runners :-) Date of review: August 23, 2016
In short: Brilliant, friendly running event to be enjoyed with friends. In full: Running is a wonderfully social, life-affirming way to relax and The Hart 4 event is probably one of the best in offering something for all abilities. The scenic 4K trail loop means that faster and slower teams are mixed up pretty quickly so no one feels as though they are 'at the back'. The fastest guys and girls might get round in 15 or 16 minutes, the less fast in 25; but it doesn't matter, it's just 4 hours of running fun with friends. Will definitely be back next year.
