In short: Great way to spend a Sunday morning In full: Thanks to everyone involved in this event - it was well organised and a great course. It was good to run past some of the other sites in the National Forest - a bit of sightseeing en-route. Decent T shirt. Date of review: September 16, 2012
In short: Scenic and good first 10k In full: This was my first 10k race and having done a few of the 5k Parkruns that partly run along the same route, I kind of knew what to expect.
On a mixed surface of generally well metalled footpaths, it is flat for large periods with a few undulating sections and one beast of an incline which comes after about 4 miles but is very short. The downhill for the last mile or so is very welcoming!
The organisation was very good. Not bad for spectators as you can head up some of the tracks and paths yourselves but if you want to watch the runners, there's only really the start and finish areas which the runners also pass at around 2 miles.
The timing is manual but based on my GPS watch they were pretty spot on. The goodies at the end consist of a t-shirt and a water bottle but no medal.
Overall a very well run event on a scenic trail that is challenging in places but generally good for all levels. Date of review: September 16, 2012
In short: Very well organised with some unexpected hills. Nice t-shirt too In full: This is one of the 'hillier' 10ks I have done and throughly enjoyed it. The volunteers on the course gave you a smile and a cheer which was great - very encouraging. Mixed abilities and general fun atmosphere so would suit anyone. Not good for a PB as quite undulating but super nonetheless :) Date of review: September 16, 2012
