In short: Hilly but well organised In full: My first 10k and i found it very enjoyable although the hills were quite tough. I managed to do it in just under an hour which i was really pleased with as i am a beginner. Would deffinately do again. Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: Beautiful setting, shame it rained so much, although it didn't dampen the spirits. A challenging off road run with lots of mud and water. What a hill near the finish, well done St Johns, will be back next year! Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: excellent race once started In full: After walking around for 10 mins trying to find the start, i found this race was marshalled extremely well. Quite scenic after a couple of kms and a uphill finish. i think my legs will ache in the morning Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: very good I will be back next year. In full: I have done 10k half marathone and full marathone over the years in Winchester and the events are always very well organized.I come from Andover who don't organize anything for road runners. Date of review: May 22, 2005
In short: Enjoyed it a lot. pb by 6mins. Too narrow in places. In full: Main criticism was start. There were a lot of very slow runners near the front which on narrow streets and immediate up hill meant that there was a lot of overtaking required. Otherwise a really enjoyable run.

In short: Great race, even with those hills. And somehow managed a PB. In full: People had warned me the hills on this one were a bit of a killer. And they were right. I'm sure school physics said that whatever went up would come down. hmmm?
The weather was interesting too: one minute scorching and the next wind and rain threatening hypothermia.
But despite all that it was an enjoyable race and it made somehow squeezing in a PB even more enjoyable. Will be back next year.
And congrats to the organisers on a very slick and well marshalled event.
