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
In short: Lovely day for it In full: Done this a couple of times now and returned this year after injury. Not my best time but just love the atmosphere of this race, great organisation, great t shirt and lovely cakes make it a worthwhile trip out. Thanks to all the marshalls Date of review: August 1, 2011
In short: Excellent organisation, marshalls very supportive, road closure a definite bonus for start and finish. PB almost guaranteed yet the mild undulations make you work at it. In full: Marks out of ten, I'd give it 9.5. Best 5 miler I've done to date :-) Date of review: August 1, 2011
In short: Good PB potential - well organised race In full: I enjoyed this race last year and came back again, shaving 6 minutes off of last years time, not bad considering the heat! More club runners than last year, no doubt due to the glowing reports of last year, but still welcoming to newbies.
A well marshalled well organised event, chip timing a little redundant if there are no splits and no starting line to cross, but more accurate than a person with a stop clock and a clipboard so no real complaints.
Had to take a large T Shirt, my fault for being late - other than that no complaints! Date of review: August 1, 2011
