In short: Who would have thought Bracknell was this pretty? In full: From parking 20 yards from the start, the huge number of loos at the start, enthusiatic marshalls (most anyway) and a no waste goody bag at the end this is a great race. This is a well organised race in suprisingly pleasant surrounds. A few hills, but nothing to stop a fast time. The best value half around Date of review: May 10, 2010

In short: Top value race, brilliantly organised. In full: All went like clockwork with the organization. The marshalls, kids offering drinks and suporters were all superb, thanks very much. Great weather for runners (if not watchers!) and top value with a great goody bag and decent t-shirt thrown in. Date of review: May 9, 2010
In short: Superb organisation, excellent marshalling and a great goodie bag! In full: First time running this race and was pleasantly surprised. The marshalling was excellent - got encouragement from all of them on the way round, and considering the 'twisty-ness' of the course, there was never a junction or road crossing unattended.
Route was interesting, not the prettiest, but a few hills, lots of twists and turns and parks to keep things interesting.
For a relatively small race, the public support was brilliant - lots of residents on the way round and the children at the water/sponge stations were very enthusiastic!
Organisation was great - got a car parking space no problem, route signposted all the way round, started bang on 9am and there were plenty of toilets! Only suggestion would be a couple of port-a-loos on the way round - perhaps at a few water stations?
Goodie bag was great too - t-shirt, medal, re-usable drawstring bag, drink, water bottle, Sweatshop voucher and cereal bar. Results and photos were up by dinner time as well. Great value. Will defintely be back next year. :) Date of review: May 9, 2010

In short: Well Done Quintiles and Bracknell ! In full: Great event, a credit to the organisers and sponsors, and of course, all of the many volunteers out there in the rain. Course is good fun, a nice hill to play with, plenty of flatish bits, several good corners, and it's traffic free, a huge bonus. I'll be back for more ! It's one of my fave runs, and recomended.
