In short: My first proper half. Thouroughly enjoyed it, next year will do it with a team. In full: This is local for me. I have run XC and road 10k at RAF Cranwell over the years but the half was excellent. Next year we intend to put together a station team in order to raise cash for service charities.

In short: windy and cold! In full: Did this as a warm-up for the hills of Hastings Half and expected a fast time! Didn,t get it thou, thanks to the conditions! But they can,t all be easy can they! Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Brilliant, Briliiant, Brilliant, Brilliant......... In full: ......I'll be back again next year. The free hot drink voucher at the end of the race was a great idea. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Interesting race In full: Not one I would do again. Managed to get shouted at twice during the day by moody organisers. Have to say one of the most disappointing 10ks I have run in. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Amazing course, good atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed it. In full: Did this one last year as well, not quite so muddy this time, but just as challenging. Atmosphere on the course was great, and whole experience very invigorating. Still think that £20 for a half is a bit steep though! Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: A well organised event, with interesting (I'm a celeb get me out of here) type mud slide. In full: A nice race and made a change from all road work, good atmosphere and will be back, well done to all concerned in organising it. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Cold conditions but excellent race In full: I ran a p.b. so I thought it was a great race. Picturesque village with shops to keep the family entertained whilst I ran. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Well organised and friendly In full: Due to a mistake with the lead car, the course was about half a mile longer than it should have been... Can't say I noticed but was impressed to receive an email telling me so on the very same day. This was sent to all runners (640 plus). It felt like someone cared... Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Much fun - I was chuffed to find I'd run further than 13.1 miles! In full: Really enjoyed the race and echo others' sentiments about the great lengths (quite apt, I think) David Hollingworth has subsequently gone to to make sure we all had a pro-rated time. Friendly people and ups and downs in the course made it more interesting than the rest of the scenery might suggest. Will be back next year.
In short: A good half would recommend to friends In full: Enjoyed this one not quite a PB but only 3 mins off. I think the wind didn't help. Bag storage didn't seem very manned but I got my bag back anyway. To be honest not too bothered about lack of T-shirt as I'm much more of a medal fan and this one was a whopper!!!

In short: Very friendly folk ran, and organised this race. In full: I was just happy to hear that I hadn't done my PW by over 10 minutes! A bit of a disappointment though, all things considered. Date of review: February 28, 2006
In short: Once you got started you soon warmed up In full: Not being a very fast runner found it very rewarding that over 5 minutes was taken off my time!!! I think the organisers did very well in letting everyone know so quickly that they had run too far and I will definitely be there next year.
I have been on so called prestigious runs paying three times as much to enter to find they have run out of water, had to walk over half a mile for your medal after the race and people have even died out there. Date of review: February 28, 2006
