In short: Excellent race and organisation In full: Can't fault the organisation and excellent course. 4th year for me at the Maddog. Great work by organisers raising funds for local charities. Keep up the great work and thanks. Date of review: February 9, 2015
In short: Excellent as usual. Great organisation and a fun atmosphere. In full: Thanks to all the volunteers who make this a brilliant event. Marshalls give great support. Musicians gave me a lift as well. You can see how much hard work goes into organising this. I will never be a proper runner but I will be back for this next year. Date of review: February 9, 2015
In short: Always a good event, superbly organised, the FRIENDLY 10K.

In short: The best 10K around In full: This is an absolutely fantastic 10K. Really well organised, chip timing, flat fast course (although it's exposed so only if the weather plays ball!! which it definitely did this year :) ) Fantastic medal, wicking t-shirt (with a fitted version for the women), packed 'doggy bag' and great atmosphere and support. Well worth the trip over from Yorkshire and I even managed to bag a pb. I absolutely love the dog theme and I'll be back next year :) Date of review: February 9, 2015
In short: Brilliant race In full: Very good race good atmosphere well organised best goody bag ever and very impressed that results were sent to mobile and were there as soon as got back to car excellent race one of best I have ever run Date of review: February 9, 2015
In short: Continues to be the best organised race I've taken part in. In full: I like this race because from the day of registration you're kept regularly updated by emails from the Race Director. Even on race morning at 6.30am a confirmation email arrived advising of the weather for the day etc. It makes you feel part of the whole thing, as though the race is organised to give you, the runner, the very best experience. Then, free parking at a central parking area, free transfer buses that ran like clockwork both before and after the race. A school used as Race HQ, meant there were plenty of toilets, plenty of indoor space to relax in...it is February!!...then plenty of motivating musical support around the course. I cannot really fault it. Not forgetting a great medal, quality T shirt, free gels, AND a pair of branded running socks....plus all the other regular goody bag freebies...this must make it one of the best value races around.

In full: Ran this race for the second year and enjoyed it as much as last time. its nearly flat,and its fast. nice marshal's, nice feel to the event. will run again in 2016..... Date of review: February 9, 2015
In short: Amazing organisation, great route, easy to navigate In full: A great first 50 mile ultra, great organisation really was like clockwork, this year the route wasn't flooded but the mud was crippling. Miles of really tough going, energy sapping, slippy, clingy mud... apart from that great race Date of review: February 8, 2015
In short: Great race with real PB potential In full: Slickly organised from the off. Well marshalled corral that was then walked round to the start. Ropes separate each self chosen pen - sub 35, 35-40 etc. One joker was quipping they were for ages.
Bit of a headwind seemingly for the first two thirds of the race but a good turnout meant that were plenty of groups to tag into. Having read last year's reviews it was a great feeling to know the last couple of k were on a slight downhill. I have never ever seen a 5:30 mile on my watch before!
Very happy with a pb. A fun and convenient event and seemingly well timed pre spring marathon. Well done to the organisers. Date of review: February 8, 2015
In short: woof woof, wag the tail! In full: It's a cracker of a run, well organised, decent bands, flat course and this year the tech t-shirt came with free running socks! And that was before the goodie bag! Date of review: February 8, 2015
In short: Fantastically well organised and friendly In full: Hats off to Deal Tri for organising this, it gets better every year. I have never in 18 years of running come across such consistently friendly and chirpy marshalls- and having people cycling the course to encourage you as well was brilliant. thank you.
