In short: This was my third time doing the TT5K. I love the run and every year have improved my time. It's a race that is always on my calendar. My kids run the Dookers Dash and Mile the day before and love it to. we'll see you all again next year! Date of review: August 17, 2016
In short: Friendly, Welcoming and Colourful In full: This is the second year of taking part, and once again the event is really well organised. Its the little things like already having your race number written on the baggage label.
The route its self is scenic, flat and offers good PB potential and is very well supported by friends, partners and general park goers.
The event its self is very well organised, easily laid out, friendly and helps unite the LGBT community and offers a great social opportunity away from the traditional LGBT Clubbing scene'.
Thoroughly recommended and every year the gift back seems to feature something different - Last year a T-Shirt, this year a gym/face towel. Date of review: August 16, 2016
In short: Cracking day out but so tough In full: What a great weekend as we camped at race hq with a few hundred others and the atmosphere was great. The whole event runs so smoothly, huge support from marshals & other runners. I really enjoyed a day at the back end of the field for a change, there is so much more in taking part than flogging yourself to death to achieve a PB - this is an event to enjoy Date of review: August 16, 2016
In short: A really lovely 10K race In full: I am really pleased this excellent 10K has been added to the racing calendar. A lovely, pretty course, plenty of friendly, enthusiastic marshals, a chunky medal, a nice teeshirt, it had everything going for it. I don't like road races much, but I really loved this one. The queue for the loos got a bit frightening for a while, but they soon sought out alternatives. I'll be back next year. Date of review: August 16, 2016
In short: lovely race in the woods In full: well organised, great marshalls & water station people, good info pre race, lovely medal & t-shirt, good car parking & car park people, lovely relaxed woodland route, fairly flat, would do it again
only gripes would be lack of loos at the start (but this is the same for 90% of races) & the mile markers were a bit out - but overall great, so thanks Burnham Joggers
In short: Great new 10K on easy tarmac and woodland paths In full: This is the first year the Burnham Beeches 10K has been run, and a welcome race in the calender it is. Nice woodland route, on some tarmac road and woodland sturdy paths (no tree roots to worry about). Great marshalls and lots of them. Water containers were a bit difficult to get open at first. Will run this again. It should be listed as a separate event in RW so that it gets spotted by those wanting to do a 10K (not a half). Date of review: August 16, 2016
In short: Well organised, lovely course In full: Lovely course through burnham beeches, felt almost relaxed doing the half marathon. Welcome change from busy roads and housing estates most halves run through. The mile markers seemed a little out to me and I only clocked 12.9miles. A very small criticsm though as a lot more positives for this run. Date of review: August 16, 2016
In short: Beautiful route through the Beeches - excellent mix of hills and flats In full: Caldicott School is a fantastic start location to kick off this early season half. Not too many beginners, but not at all intimidating if you're not seasoned (or coming back to it like me). The route takes you on two laps of the stunning Burnham Beeches, and to me seemed to be the perfect mix of hills and flats. None of the hills were put there to really challenge your climbing ability (crampons not required!) but they did make it interesting. A nice medal and technical tee in the goody bag topped off a great morning. Date of review: August 16, 2016
In short: Organised by runners, for runners with a great location In full: So many positives about this event and a few that made it special:
Ample water in sensible squeezy bags so they were light and easy to carry without spilling any. Excellent marshals throughout the course who engaged with the runners and I noticed more than one on each road junction to be sure it remained a traffic free route. Collecting numbers and dropping / collecting bags was handled very efficiently Access to an open air swimming pool at the end just finished the day off perfectly
It was clear the entry money was spent on making it the best event it could be, and shames some of the larger organised runs. Well done Burnham Joggers.
