In short: Good mid-challenging road race In full: Really friendly field and organisers combined with a good route and glorious, if somewhat cold, weather made this a great introduction to 10K racing to me. Thoroughly recommend it. Date of review: November 20, 2005
In short: Great race, wonderful sunny weather, marshals good. In full: Organisation very good except for some confusion over access for parking; running in crowds a challenge to start with, but overall a lot of fun. Date of review: November 20, 2005
In short: Yet again, superb. In full: Great race. The chip timing seemed to get rid of the minimal hassles from last year. How it is so quick I just don't know, it shouldn't be. Date of review: November 20, 2005
In short: Fairly hilly, challenging and varied course. Well organised and a good morning out. In full: I really enjoyed this. It was cold and the course had more hills than I imagined which added some extra challenge, including a pretty big hill in the first and last miles. My slowest mile was the 10th so given everyone else's comments, must mean I was virtually going backwards.
Good marshalls who braved the weather and despite a lack of support on route, I thought there was a good atmosphere between the runners.
Would recomend this to others as a good challenging 10m race. Date of review: November 20, 2005
In short: Very enjoyable race - would definitely do it again. In full: Great weather, no force 10 gale (a la Bexhill in September!). Lovely day for a race! Didn't trip over any dogs either. Date of review: November 20, 2005
In short: Low turnout but a good friendly race in nice woodland setting. In full: Arrived at 12:30 for a 12:50 start to find senior mens race had been delayed by 30mins due to a team from Essex arriving late. Course was well marshalled with two hills on each of the 4 laps. The second hill was a bit of a killer. Turnout was not great but overall it was a worthwhile Autum/Winter run.

In short: Excellent race in lovely countryside, and good weather conditions. In full: Don't be fooled by the organiser's description of flat though. It's more undulating than flat. Still didn't prevent me from setting a pb though. Date of review: November 20, 2005
