In short: Good fun, nice hills NOT! Would recommend as a quality race, well set up. In full: This was the first event my deafblind running partner had entered. So if that is a guide for how good this event is for beginners consider it a recommendation.
Alright the hills are very beginner friendly but then he has only been running for about 3-4 months and we didn't stop once. He's pretty committed!
Great race, great medal, nice to have proper timing for a shorter event, quality goody bag. All round a very good race. £15 for 10km can seem a bit steep but this one still has to be good value. Date of review: February 5, 2006
In short: Too many runners for this short course In full: This race has got to be the worse race on the calender.The coures itself is ok but in my opinion there sould be a 400 limit of runners not 1000+.The race is only 5 miles, the start is very congested and it can take upto 3 miles before you get going properly.I won't do this one again.

In short: A good challenge, perfect day, fab race In full: My first half marathon and i enjoyed every mile!Gained a respectable time and will be looking to improve on it next year!! Date of review: February 5, 2006
In short: The weather was perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed the race. However, I would have liked to receive a medal and was disappointed with just a t-shirt and a rather nasty tasting drink. But I will do it again! Date of review: February 5, 2006

In short: Lovely, Challenging, Well Marshalled and Organised. In full: Really good race to participant it. Got it all in there, Hills, Ups & Downs, Fast Flats, Beautiful Scenery, Plenty of Water Stations, Regular Mile Markers, Good Crowds, Even almost got trampled down by a Runaway Horse, Did anyone else see that?

In short: Nice Half Marathon for First Timers In full: Nice first Half Marathon for Tirst Timers like myself. Guess what: Ran my PB :-). Training for April. Didn't mind the hills to much, and because of the proximity to London will come back next year. Fun to cross the M25 twice and smile at all the cars .... Date of review: February 5, 2006
