In short: Scenic, well-organized, and friendly In full: Excellent job by the organizers and marshals, with great facilities. Course was lovely in spite of the mist, and in spite of its one evil hill at 6k. I'll be back; thank you! Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: two laps of the slightly hillier bit of Cambridgeshire In full: Seeing the 14 mile marker on the first lap was a bit of a downer! But well done Yaxley Runners. Excellent event. Date of review: January 22, 2006

In short: Nice race, Brilliantly marshalled, never seen so many!!!! Quite a challenging start up and found it a little akward coming down the steps the other side, as they were all different shapes and sizes, couldn't get a regular foot strike. In full: Overall, a good race for everybody. Well done and thank you to all those involved. Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: Recommended In full: Well organised run. Lots of marshalls and a food mainly traffic free course. A couple of them fancied themselves as comedians which always makes for a nice light hearted moment to keep us smiling.
Plenty of facilities at the HQ with plenty of room for everyone. Good value for money race. A nice medal at the end and showers!
Very businesslike and functional no nonsense race. Many people got PBs today which is always pleasing to see. Striders did well. I recommend this race. Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: much fun! the view would have been great if it wasn't for the mist! In full: I really enjoyed this one! Interesting course - first half more challenging (bits of up) than the second (the way down!), and if it wasn't for the mist the views would have been good too, some beautiful countryside. Bit of a squeeze at the start though. Excellently marshalled, super support and traffic control all the way round, especially through Loxley, there were a good bunch of folk out, and a very nice looking pub too!
Good facilities afterwards - bar and nice hot showers :o) Well done Stratford, and again, a HUGE thankyou to the marshals for their sterling job!
In short: Very hilly, very enjoyable In full: A great x country 10K. Fantastic scenery, great weather, smooth organisation, well marshalled and course marked. A great way to spend a morning. Do it if you fancy a challenge, it added 18 minutes to my 10k road time. Date of review: January 22, 2006

In short: Muddy! In full: A nice course with a good mix of surfaces. I did have to laugh at the two guys that collided on the first hill climb in the mud and who both then ended up face first in it! An enjoyable race and am looking forward to Round 2 Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: Flat with definite PB potential In full: Unfortunately had a cracked rib so just jogged round this myself, but the course is v flat and fast. Will run this with PB in mind next year. Date of review: January 22, 2006
