In short: Loved it, even though the puddles were HUGE! In full: I was a bit worried that 3 laps round the park would be a little dull but NO WAY. Thoroughly enjoyed it despite the weather and will definitely do his one again. Not convinced about the PB potential though. Even though it was a truly flat course, the paths were fairly narrow so unless you could get on the front row, it made for a slow first mile. Not that that's a bad thing for most of us...

In short: An excellent and professionally organised race. Knackering hills & deep runner swallowing bogs!. A great laugh, and this is from a 'softy road runner'! I can't recomend this enough!!!!!!! Date of review: October 23, 2005
In short: good race well worth a go In full: the race was run over narrow country paths which were full of puddles so it made it hard to overtake, however this made the course more interesting. but dont get put off you still have a chance of a pb. very enjoyable. Date of review: October 23, 2005
In short: Beautiful scenery and great local support In full: Thanks to the organisers for a great race well supported, everything a local race should be.
So, how can a race such as this make significant road closures for under a tenner (and about 400 entrants I think) yet others are pushing twnty quid, or the BUPA rip off races are pushing 30? Date of review: October 23, 2005
In short: 3 laps around a (normally) attractive park. Today, unfortunately, earlier heavy rain waterlogged the paths, and at one point a long water pool was more than ankle deep ! Date of review: October 23, 2005
