In short: A good well organised and friendly race. In full: It was a good race, excellent facilities and everybody was very friendly. Marshals were very helpful, good support for all runners on the way round and the free isotonic drinks are the begining and end was a nice and very welcome touch! Will be back.

In short: A great race on quiet country lanes In full: Excellent marshalling. Lovely course. Very friendly. Glad to see that the only gripe from previous years, the lateness of the prize giving, was much improved this year. Date of review: May 16, 2005
In short: Great race let down by awful start In full: I suppose I sound churlich for moaning about a race where I knocked 2 minutes off my PB - but the lack of control at the start. Runners are supposed to assempble and then be walked round - what happened is people just hung around, so those of us who played by rules were rewarded with a minute plus wait to cross the line, and three miles of runing round slow runners strung out across the road - surely a candidate for chip timing?

In short: loved it, will be back in 2006 In full: Never done it before but as a run/walker found it fantastic. The atmosphere and organisation was fantastic, never once worried about how far back I was as it didn't feel like that was the point. Will be back next year! Date of review: May 16, 2005
In short: Good organisation, although distance was well out - around a third of a mile longer than the 10K quoted. In full: Beatiful weather and a lovely route around the park, although doing 2 laps is never as good as 1 big loop. Good for spectators as the park is a nice spot for a well earned picnic afterwards.
Distance was a good bit out though. A third of a mile doesn't sound much to be out by, but this is gonna add on over 2 minutes to your time which can turn a PB into a mediocre time. Date of review: May 16, 2005
