In short: One of the best In full: My third time at this one. The organisation is extraordinary; everything is there. A village fete atmosphere at the start sets the mood. A mix of urban and rural countryside. Quite a bit of the run is on active roads, but the marshals keep the separation working. Friendly marshals and great crowd support. Recommend it.

In short: A great race again this year In full: Have run this race on and off since 2009 and keep coming back to it. Great workout with enough climbs and descents to make it a good run. Organised like clockwork and excellent and friendly marshals and nice medal. What more can one ask for? A six year course PB today hepled Date of review: May 15, 2016
In short: Flat, fast and friendly! In full: Really good communication and organisation both before and during the race. The start is a bit of a walk from parking so leave yourself plenty of time. There are plenty of toilets at HQ, though obviously busy, there are some portaloos by the start line but quite a queue. Very handy woods on the road which a lot of people sneaked off to for a last minute pee!
Lots of marshalls, who were very friendly and encouraging. Loads of water stations, and the jelly baby zone and sponge zone were a brilliant pick me up.
The course is flat and fast as advertised, a slight hill at 2 miles and then a very short little climb just before you get in the stadium at the end but does not affect the ability to get a PB at all. I think the flattest course I have ever run and the views across the fields are just beautiful.
The finish was great, brilliant atmosphere and the free muffin and goody bag were great for the money. Especially the salt and vinegar crisps, much appreciated!
Would most definitely run again, and would recommend for a seasoned runner or a first timer. Date of review: May 15, 2016
In short: Nice local race in lovely countryside. In full: Enjoyable 10 / 10.5 k race in lovely countryside. If there are an extra couple of martials / or clearer signs (e.g luminous) that you can tell are definitely race day signs at strategic places it will be an even better event next year Date of review: May 15, 2016
In short: Fantastic event, the organisation was superb and the finish at Scunthorpe's football stadium was perfect. In full: Lived up fully to its billing as being fast and friendly. Really top notch organisation for which all involved are to be congratulated. Thoroughly enjoyable despite the very warm day. First time I have run the event but it will now be a fixture in my calendar. Date of review: May 15, 2016
In short: Super little race In full: A basic no-frills 10K: turn up and run and get your medal! Faultless organisation as always. Great venue with loads of room, catering for runners and support crews, and easy to get to. Fast baggage, plenty of marshals. The course is excellent; all along dirt tracks apart from the first and final km and plenty of shade among trees in fragrant blossom. Not a pb course because of some leg-sapping ups and downs but great fun. All in all an enjoyable day out. Date of review: May 15, 2016
In short: Undulating course with a village fete atmosphere at start and finsh In full: Great atmosphere, great organisation, easy parking, glorious day, challenging course, excellent marshalls, lovely locals, especially the young lady with the hose on second of the two 5km laps. Hot sun, lots of sweat, but even more smiles. Lots of food and drink options post-race, plenty for non-runners to, beautiful village setting. Looking forward to next year.

In short: Brliant atmosphere, the best goody bag, very well organised and entertaining for spectators. In full: The best 10k we run!! It has a brilliant atmosphere with everyone being cheered along the way, the best goody bag, it is an interesting towny run, but further more, it is a family orientated event with fun runs for the kiddies (you need to book early!) and entertainment (rides, food etc) for spectators. It really is a well organised and a friendly event! Date of review: May 14, 2016
In short: Best goody bag ever. Well wroth the trip from any distance. In full: This is my home race, and I run it every year I can. Of all the races I run, I have never had such a value packed goody bag, and the atmosphere and support is better than many higher profile races. This years event sold out in 8 days. Next years in just 20 hours! Be quick and sign up for 2018 when it opens next year or get onto the transfer list for 2017. You won't be disappointed. Date of review: May 13, 2016
