In short: Faultless! Thanks to all concerned. In full: A agree a later start-time would be a good idea. Thanks to all concerned for a wonderful event. My first time this year and I look forward to returning next year. Date of review: July 11, 2010
In short: Fantastic Race In full: Really great race today, the organisation was exceptional and the marshalls were really supportive. The chap at mile 5 with the hose pipe deserves a medal, great touch. The course was nice and flat and the trees gave some good shelter from the sun.
New Forest runners now how to put on a show! Date of review: July 11, 2010
In short: Hot, hot, hot - lovely race/scenery through the forest In full: Possibly benefit from an earlier start time due to the heat - was boiling and running in midday sun not good! Thank you to all the marsalls and the man at the 5 mile drink point with the hose! Date of review: July 11, 2010
In short: Lovely run through the least hilly parts of the New Forest In full: Lovely run in summery conditions. Most is off road but on well trodden country lanes. Nothing too off-the-roady, and a fair bit of asphalt as well. Not a PB course, but not slow either.
Little DF enjoyed the 1/2M children fun run, particularly as she beat Scooby Doo by at least 3 seconds.
Well worth signing up for Date of review: July 11, 2010
In short: Great fun, enjoyed the challenge every minute In full: Very well organised, family friendly race. Loads of things to keep the spectators amused while they waited, especially the kids. The course is nice and scenic, although more undulating than the descibed "flat". Also, approximately 75% of the race is on mainly compacted forest tracks, so if you have road shoes you'll get a shock. Very efficiently organised and the Marshalls were great, all around the course and very supportive. I will be back next year, this time with friends. Date of review: July 20, 2009
In short: Absolutely loved it! In full: Beautiful scenery and a really friendly club and very well organised. The queues for the loo weren't that long but probably could have done with another toilet block.
