In short: It was good last year. This year was even better In full: Last year there were two slight problems. Narrow exit to start field and problems with registration. Top marks to the organisers for sorting this out. So what can I say. It ran as smoothly as silk. The people of Market Drayton were brilliant. The course is interesting. The goody bag was second to none I have ever seen. Congratulations to all concerned. Date of review: May 13, 2012
In short: Faultless performance by the MD Race team! In full: Awesome, one of the best races in the UK, and no its not because of the scenery (housing estates....but unimportant) its because of this: Faultless, precise organisation, free car parking at start, tech t given at start, timed start pens, chip timing, plenty of marshalls & supporters en route, smooth finish to personal chip removal, pork pies, medal, 6 x muller yogurts, snicker bar, gingerbread man and bottle of water, showers & changing area, and all for half the price of the big commercial events! You can tell that the organisers care about you having a good race experience, and improvements have been made on last year which has made it even better. I honestly cannot fault this race.

In short: Well organised - slightly challenging first half In full: This is such a well organised race. I wasn't expecting chip timing (it probably said it when I signed up but I don't read those things). Everything went without a hitch. Lots of things for the kids to do while they wait around for you while you run.
The course is undulating in the first half with a couple of steep but short hills and one long, not so steep hill. The finish is well organised with chip removal, medal pick up and the best goody bag ever.
Nice technical t-shirt and medal.
I will be back next year. Date of review: May 13, 2012

In short: Great race, great people, well organised, brilliant supportive crowds. In full: Have done this 4 times now and will carry on doing this race until they tire of putting it on! Even without the support of the main sponsors they still managed to put on a race that they should be very proud of. Date of review: May 12, 2011
