In short: A fantastic well organised event. It must surly be oneof the best value events on the calendar. A special mention for the cheerry marshalls who endured freezing conditions Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Ouch! In full: An awful lot of very narrow paths where overtaking was nearly impossible, and extreme terrain challenges constantly slowing the pace gave the feeling of a mass training run more than a race. well organised and good fun - glad it wasnt raining though!

In short: A well organised race. In full: This is a well organised race which provides a nice course that could have allowed for a PB if you had trained better than I had. Nice goody bag and it was pleasing to get the medals being given out by the mayor. Would consider doing this one again. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Good fun, but then that's what running is all about. In full: 1st race of the year.Just under the hour. Very happy. The scenery was a bit dull but a single lap is definitely better than covering the same ground too many times. Organisation very good and good value for money. Only potential problem could have been the amount of broken glass (beer bottles etc.) on the course. Still I suppose this is what you get nowadays in an urban environment. Nice big medal at the finish and chat with the Lady Mayoress. A big hand to the Mayor and Mayoress as they weren't there just for the first few finishers but still doing the good work in the cold for people like me who took an hour. Well done all. Good/efficient baggage, food, showers etc. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Excellent First 10K In full: Tremendous organisation, great atmosphere despite the cold, interesting urban course, marshalls/runners/spectators very friendly. This was my first ever 10K race and I was very impressed, and am converted! Well done Tamworth. Nice castle too. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: It's a good race, shame about the route through some of Tamworths more "scenic areas" have to dodge the burned out car. Good size field though and 10/10 for organisation and facilities. I'll be back next year. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: An excellent, well organised race with a surprisingly good atmosphere despite the cold weather! Only let down was the route through a council estate but would definately run it again! Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: If you can't train well over winter don't do this race wait til March/April In full: I've never been one for organised warm-ups however the warm-up was great and much needed. Only did about 5 training runs before the race (needed to rethink how I train over the winter)
ALL the marshalls were brill and gave loads of encouragement.
A novel idea to get the t-shirt before the race would have preferred it in the goody bag but they were handing out the t-shirts based on size so fair enough.
Medal is really nice and because it's so different from the others I've had. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: fantastic race- well done to organisers In full: What more could you want..a good cause, steep lungbusting hills and heaps of mud. Recorded a PW for 10k but certainly the most fun I've had in a race since the Mid Summer Munro Madness (which was my PW over the 1/2 Marathon!) Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Good testing course In full: First time I have run this course. Well signposted from the motorway. Good organisation at the start and finish, albiet at bit cramped, but you can"t have everything perfect. Burnt out car made me feel at home,(From Bham), some of the local nobheads left broken bottles the night before. Suspect the route wasn"t the poshest part of town. Nice T shirt Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Great race, well organised. In full: No real complaints (apart from the weather), a solid half marathon with a challenging second part. Shame about the slidey mud, I was on course for a sub 1hr45 until that bit. Will do again next year. Date of review: February 19, 2006
