In short: I am a local runner but this is the first time that i have competed at Woburn . This 10k is challenging with out being really hard for a first timer . The scenery is great with the attraction of the animals in the back ground . Big race well organise Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: a well orgainesed race In full: a well organised race, some testing "slopes" around course, not the best sencery to show tamworth at its best, the burnt out car a nice touch, broke the hour mark to record p.b so back next year. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: My first Half Marathon, and did a better time then I thought I would. In full: Nice race and a few nice hills thrown in for good measure. Touch last mile or so as the finish is uphill, but really enjoyed this race despite the hills and rain towards the end. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Well organised, good atmosphere - just not pretty In full: Only my second 10k race - thoroughly enjoyed it. Decent facilities at the start, lots of marshalls/signs etc. The course was hard work without being off-putting for a newcomer. Good quality t-shirt & medal. The only real downside is the scenery, but you can't have everyting. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: The best tour of Tamworth's housing estates I've ever had! In full: Really well organised - lots of really nice touches. Fantastic to be handed a medal by the mayor! Good fast course. Very friendly. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: A chilly morning but the unique setting and excellent organisation made for a good day out. The prerace packet was thorough and accurate and the elevation guide was particularly useful. Goodie bag contained several quality SIS products. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: interesting scenery... interesting course - not a bad run though! In full: Not a bad run at all this one. Good course - flat (slightly undualting-ish) start part and finish (same as start part but backwards!!!) and then some good bits in the middle to test you... Ran a PB though... Scenery isn't the best - not really a run to show off the wonders of Tamworth. Although the start in the park allows for a good number of spectators at the end. Thanks go to the Army cadets for their encouragement! Well organised, and a good goody bag, medal and t-shirt.
In short: Overall, a very good race. In full: Getting in to Woburn was much better than last year, but more competitors equals more traffic, so the start was slightly delayed again. A good course, with a few hills to cope with. 7K marker was probably closer to 7.2K. Finishing line and funnel well organised. Also got to see some bison and elephants on the way in, camels at the start and a lioness (fortunately behind the fence)at 6K! Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Great race, great fun and well organised In full: This is the second time I have done this race and really enjoyed it. The goody bacg, medal and t-shirt are great. It is only let down by running through Glascote - the burnt out car was a added bonus this year. Overall though this is a really good event. Thanks Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Fantastic race – great camaraderie from all competitors In full: Fantastic race – great camaraderie from all competitors. Many thanks to the guys that gave me a lift from Slough station and in particular the guys that dragged me around the last 10 miles.
The most pictures 54 miles you could think of. Well organised with the only hitch being problems with public transport – could we expect more…
I will be booking my place for next year for sure.
