In short: Excellent race In full: Excellent friendly race, with a lovely finish on the field. It was very good value for money and the t-shirt is actually wearable for running. The marshal's were all very encouraging. Would definitely recommend :-) Date of review: July 29, 2012
In short: Very well organised race and great value for the entry fee In full: Plenty of parking near to race HQ; first and last 1/2 mile on closed road; rest of the race on fairly quite undulating country lanes; plenty of marshals; chip timing; technical t-shirt (plus coffee and cakes available at the end.)

In short: Brilliant race In full: Great, well organised run. Good value with technical t shirt, goody bag, bottled water and chip timing, all for a tenner. Marshalls really friendly and encouraging. Good atmosphere, and a bonus to have races for the kids first. Cake stall much appreciated too! (well I have earned it!) Date of review: July 29, 2012
In short: Well organised and friendly as always, a firm favourite In full: Welingborough & District do themselves proud and this year was no exception. Well organised race with excellent supportive marshalls covering the whole course, a family friendly start and finish. Great value for money with chip timing, T-shirt and a goody bag.

In short: Good organisation & vocal marshalls. Great tech t-shirt In full: Other than a rather warm morning making this race a bit tougher, the organisation was good as were the facilities & location. Great to have water bottles too rather than cups.
Lovely tech t-shirt and thank you to the marshall on the corner (before the funnel on the field) who gave lots of encouragement saying "take him, pick him off" & got me another PB. Date of review: August 2, 2011
In short: Recommended .. A rare opportunity to run a fast 5 miles In full: A good course starting and finishing on a closed road leading to a sports field, with the rest of the course on quiet well marshalled roads. Gently underlating rather than flat but potential for a good fast time.
Very well organised - lots of parking and well signposted from a few miles out.
Nice tee-shirt and goody bag with results posted early in the evening. Personally I would have preferred a 10am rather than 10.30 start to allow more time for non-running activities later in the day but a minor quibble I have about most events!
Recommended and will def look for this race again next year.
As a suggestion to the organisers how about making it 8km to make it more unique? Date of review: August 1, 2011
