In short: Worth the trip! In full: My first time this one. Very friendly, well organised. Agree with Dayglo, the section along by the A2 is not only unscenic but noisy and fumey. Near enough everything else about this race makes up for that though. It starts off quite flat, then there's the A2 bit, then there are a few hills just before and back in the park. so be careful not to blow up by going off too fast....asI did!
In short: my first 10k and will never run again In full: the marshals at the finish line disapeared so i missed the finish line and ran an extra lap. my time would have been 1.09, surely they could have waited, being that i wasnt even the last runner in! Date of review: May 12, 2006
In short: enjoyable race on a good summers evening In full: organisation slightly better than previous races, but the friendly staff made up for this. interesting that prizes were awarded for top 7 places which brought some smiles. Date of review: May 12, 2006
In short: Wasn't to imprssed with entry fee, runner's world should update it's database. Much the same as last year disorganised start, big hill, but with cold bitterly wind. Date of review: May 12, 2006
In short: Well organised and friendly run In full: My only moan would be the strong smell of dog poo at the beginning of the race. Could not see the problems with the hairpins, at the underpasses, as there were only 3 or 4 of these. The Marshalls were friendly and supportive and loved the wet sponges.

In short: third time lucky !! I made it up those hills! In full: Lovely run...loved the zoo for family...remembered to bring a picnic as food last year absolutely astronomically expensive and revolting! Really pleased to run all the way round this year!!it can be done!!Thanks to top class marshalls! Date of review: May 12, 2006
In short: Great wearher and atmosphere. Wel organised by local Harriers and well marshalled. KM signs would have been good In full: Spoke to one of the locals before the race who told me to forget about a PB. I tried my best to prove him wrong but the hills were too much for my ageing bones. Music was good and overall organisation was great. Will try the new route next year but organisers might want to hand the cans of Red Bull out before the race Date of review: May 11, 2006
In short: Fast Season Opener In full: Everyone and his dog were there to get their PB's (if they'd started their training soon enough). 3Km out along a road, a loop round a housing estate, a loop round an industrial estate, then 3km straight home. Just focus on the time, theres no point looking at anything else!
Good glass tumbler memento to commemorate 25 years of the Totton 10K. Date of review: May 11, 2006
