In short: Great PB potential In full: Despite suffering at the Half Marathon in March, decided to come back for the 10k - and very glad that I did. The lack of traffic and the flat surface make this is the ideal race for both beginners and those looking to improve their times. The lack of a medal or memento is a bit of an anti-climax (although this must contribute to the very reasonable entry fee) but this was more than compensated for by a PB (over a minute off my previous best time) and finishing (just) in the first 100! Better than a t-shirt any day. Date of review: May 5, 2006
In short: To tough for me In full: Good run, well organised, plenty of water, good support from the walkers, little pricey but no hassle over sponsership (they actually thanked us for our entry fee). The only reason i wouldn't do it again is that i found the course to be more hilly and demanding than i expected. Didn't like the narrow tracks, the uneven terrain (particularly at the finish). If you don't mind this sort of thing I'd thoughourly recommend it. Date of review: May 5, 2006
In short: Great event, loads of parking always good weather and atmosphere. Nice course along country lanes, well marshalled. One Ive done year in year out and will continue to. Date of review: May 5, 2006
In short: Great race. Will be back next year! In full: Excellent organisation, great atmosphere, beautiful scenery. Enjoyed the whole event and delighted with a PB. Hung around for a while to appreciate the hog roast and then back home for a goblet of beer. Perfect for a relative newcomer like me. Well done Brian! Date of review: May 4, 2006
In short: Lovely way to spend a summer evening In full: Very friendly & well organised race. The marshals did a great job with the traffic. Beautiful rural course (with genuine rural smells too). Goblet, beer and pig roast first class! See you all next year I hope. Date of review: May 4, 2006
In short: In full: This is not only a fantastic race but a great family day out, well supported by runners and non runners alike. The organisation is amazing, everything runs like clockwork and everyone involved is so cheerful, helpful and happy to be there! Appalling weather this year, but the organisers did a brilliant job. Other race organisers would do well to take a look, good medal, T-Shirt & goody bag, VERY reasonable entry fee and all carried out with great aplomb!
The variety of races means there is something for everyone.
Well done to everyone concerned, and make sure you all get on board next year. Date of review: May 4, 2006
In short: Great! In full: This was my first race and I would definitely recommend it to a beginner. Not too difficult, friendly and with great scenery but enough of a challenge to make you feel you earned your result, especially the hill at the end! Date of review: May 4, 2006
