In short: Good Race - my first run with over 500 folk In full: Good conditions and well marshalled. There were some undulating bits but that just majes things more interesting. A PB for me so I can't complain. Free banana and tee shirt. Those that registered got their names printed on the back which I thought was a nice touch.
Would do again. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Friendly, scenic and mildly challenging - excellent value too! In full: This is a great low-key race - one of Kent's best kept secrets! The organisation is friendly and efficient, the course scenic and mildly challenging (unless unlike me you've really worked hard on those hill sessions!), and the medal aptly different. Highly recommended! Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Now know what 'multi-terrain' means ! In full: My first 'multi-terrain' race so found it hard going but got a PB which I was very pleased with !! Only comment would be that distance markers would have helped. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: The hills! The hills! :) In full: Great scenery, good organisation, nice post-race t-shirt, excellent local support, very motivating having your name read out as you stagger towards the finish. Great 2km stretch at the end as you charge downhill. Good warm up 2k round the village at the start. The 6k inbetween was almost all uphill, and boy, do my legs know about it now!!!

In short: Well organised race in splendid scenic location In full: Really nice run, well organised, friendly marshalls and great off-road route-the hills are challenging but dont detract from what is a great race of which the organisers should be proud. Will be back next year. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Good fun for good causes In full: I was glad to be taking part in this, a non-aggresive race all done in great spirit and camaraderie amongst the cubs who take part. It is all for charity in the end and that leaves you feeling like you've done an additional something special. My leg went past Hampton Court up to Kingston up along the Thames, and you can't fault the scenery this end of the river. I enjoyed it and feel my Sunday was well spent. Thanks to all those who make it happen. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Another well organised Alice Holt In full: This one is always well organised...Again this year was no exception. The course is still challenging in places with a good few undulations. Nice to run almost completely off road though on firm tracks.
Will be back next year. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Hot weather can't be helped, crowded in some places but good day out at the quay. In full: The start was very crowded but a good atmosphere but it must have been 30 degrees celcius that day and it sure felt hotter. The delayed start meant we were stood scorching in the sun for too long. The quay is a great setting and you can have a nice ice cream afterwards! Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Beautiful scenary, challenging course, great organisation. In full: After reading the course description as 'some gentle slopes' I did not expect the mighty hills we climbed and decended today, (so watch the course descriptions in other CancerResearch 10K's.) I enjoyed the race as it was multiterrain and support and organisation was excellent. I will do it again next year for sure. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Flat, fast fenland, fantastic organisation, friendly with fabulous support ........... that must make this race "f" ing brilliant. In full: Rates as my best ever event, everything you could want, the finishers medal is brilliant, if its within a 100 mile radius of you - do it next year. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: Great atmosphere, fabulous freebies but long toilet queues In full: A flat easy course but suffered from too many people making it very squashed and slow further back. Goody bag was the best I've had yet and was full of food, samples and lucozade! I will do it again next year, the medal is top quality. Date of review: September 11, 2005
