In short: First time for this one. Longest I have ever run. Well organized. Good marshalling including bicycle marshalls who each must have ridden about 100 miles. In full: The weather was not on the side of the runners or the organizers this year but this is a well organised race in beautiful countryside. Some hills. Very friendly crowd.

In short: Great training run for London In full: Good run, shame about the weather, the finish line could do showing off a bit more but otherwise a good warmup for London. Date of review: March 4, 2007

In short: Excellent LFM build up race. In full: I must run hilly routes at home as I thought this was really flat! PB by about 20mins!! Sadly no water or FINISH sign at end but overall very good race. I'll be back! Date of review: March 22, 2006
In short: well done Gloucester AC In full: It was a 20 miler, we clocked 3.15 ish, i kept the race chip in the wheelchair bag, and handed it in at the end.
i did'nt pick up any momentoes, as we are not in it for that.
It was a lovely race, almost a reverse of the New year Gloucester 10, it was slightly undulating , but what do you expect, it's also all on the day. I was very tired come 17 miles, but that's all in the name of the game.
I would like to thank all at Gloucester AC for letting us take part. We are doing more 20's were possible , as half's are getting a little boring
Might well have a go at the Glouc half soon and hammer that , not sure yet
In short: A very fine race In full: V well organized race,great area and scenary.a few hills which begin to hurt 2nd time around,only complaint is no finish sign at the end,which is so needed if you want to have that last burst at the end,but apart from that a excellant race will be back next year Date of review: March 9, 2006
In short: Excellent race, well marshalled & frequent water stations In full: It was a great course - a few undulations but nothing too much, very well marshalled, had a very attentive ambulance & people sweeping the course, frequent water stations approx every 3.3 miles, it was great to have the results ready straight after the race, there were lots of prizes and although the finish was about 1/4 mile walk from the car park/community centre it helped loosen up the joints (though there were a lot of people having trouble walking that short distance back!). Plus a nice t-shirt!
Could have done with a start mat for the chips rather than starting them all from the gun (would have moved forward if I'd known), would have preferred bottles at the water stations rather than cups as I like to sip a bottle for a mile after the station, for some the walk back to the car from the finish would be long!
