In short: Well organised as ever, but course has no PB potential In full: Course was clocked at 6.3miles by myself and several people I spoke with, so a good 150m over-distanced, putting paid to any PB attempt. Race was well organised though, just a shame about the wind and extra distance. Date of review: August 19, 2014
In short: Worth a look In full: Mostly flat with about 3 slight climbs which when running into a head wind turned out to be hard work. Unfortunately I didn't get a PB but that's not to say that you couldn't get a PB. A few places in the race where the path gets narrow and runners have to slow to go through. The race was well organised though and it was friendly. I also got a lovely bath towel and bunch of flowers for finishing. Date of review: August 18, 2014
In short: Very well organised In full: Good race - parking very easy and all near the start - mainly flat with some small hills crossing over the motorway. There is no medal - just a towel and flowers for the ladies - I would always prefer a towel and a goody bag but it was organised by as run club and they did a great job.

In short: Cracking little race In full: Cracking 10k if your looking to start running or get in to doing 10k's regular. Very well organised all marshals very helpful and enthusiastic. Mainly flat with 2 small inclines so defiantly PB potential. Love the towel at the end its something a little different. Wouldn't hesitate to do this again. Date of review: August 18, 2013
In short: Great course, terrific organisation. In full: Can't fault the race at all.
Organisation is terrific, I entered on the deadline and still received my number and pin through the post. Car parking was very straightforward and well organised, location is prime being a couple of minutes from the M62 and 5 mins from the M6. Start was prompt, course is well marshalled throughout. Love the finish, the last 400m is level and straight down the tree and spectator lined avenue. Date of review: August 18, 2013
In short: Well organised event, good value for money In full: Very well organised by Spectrum Striders. Well sign-posted and good to have free parking. Good that chip timing was available for a relatively low-cost entry fee. Course wasn't the most scenic but it was mostly flat, apart from some small hills towards the end. Still managed a PB though! Only slight gripe was that I thought that the finishing funnel was quite narrow, which got a little crowded. Very useful towel! A no-nonsense event, good value for money.

In short: Great Organisation and Good Chance of a Fast Time In full: I ran my best ever 10k time on this course many years ago but still returned to run it again, this time MUCH slower. Excellent organisation and a high-quality, practical towel at the finish. Yes, there are a few small inclines but nothing compared to many courses. Scenery not up to much but if that's what floats your boat, then go for a car ride instead. Date of review: August 21, 2012
