In short: Really enjoyable run> Friendly atmosphere and good support on the course. In full: A friend recommended this one after the heat of 2005. I'm glad I followed up on his advice and that the weather was a bit cooler. I will also be recommending this as one not to be missed. Thanks to all the marshalls and supporters. Well done!

In short: Very friendly and well organised event In full: Very well organised event on challenging course particularly the hill at 8 miles. Great support from the locals with 'unofficial' water stations and 'showers' particularly welcome in the heat. Enjoyed free massage, banana and chocolate (albeit melted). Will be back next year.

The heat was a challenge but great course and ideal distance when training for a half. love the run, love the atmosphere will be back next year! Date of review: June 25, 2006
In short: Glorious! In full: I had a wonderful day at this race, it was my first ever and while it was mainly club runners I was made very welcome indeed and learned a lot. The scenery is beautiful, the locals were out with water which really helped in the heat, and the atmosphere was extremely friendly with lots of families about. Definitely do it if you can.

In short: 3rd year it's been run and again great. Now a must in the Midlands race calendar. 'Only' 21 degrees C. this year so plenty of PBs. In full: Again thanks and congrats to Hampton Sports Club for a thoroughly well organised, friendly and enjoyable race. Date of review: June 25, 2006
In short: Thoroughly well organised - mile markers throughout, marshalls doing a great job and water when needed. Nearly traffic free. Good mix of serious running and friendly village atmosphere. Well done again Hampton Tennis Club. In full: A feather in the cap for 'Hampton 2012'!(See "Olympic village lies in a corner of England" - Telegraph 29.12.04).
Scorching last year, sweltering this time, what next? Date of review: June 20, 2005
