In short: Well organised run on country lanes In full: Well organised race which seems to attract a bigger field each year. 3k fun run for the kids followed by a undulating 10k with a short steep climb at 8k to make sure yo remember the run ! Date of review: July 2, 2012
In short: Very well run race on an excellent course with perfect weather In full: The organisation at Tadley is always very good. Low key but well managed.
It's an excellent course - flat for a mile, down hill for a mile, 3 miles of occassional undulation and then a sharp climb at 8k just to take away any complacency as the finish approaches.
What made it extra enjoyable this year was the weather. It was warm enough but a bit of breeze and even a bit of drizzle the hills at the end seemed much much easier than last year. Date of review: July 2, 2012
In short: Nice run through the lanes. In full: Glad to have the heads ups on the 8k bump from reading other reviews. Nice run and will look out for their other races. Read somewhere it was a bit clubby but didn't find that at all. Date of review: July 1, 2012
In short: Quiet country lanes, lovely atmosphere,, ....undulating. In full: Lovely race, well organised and plenty of parking! Nasty hill straight after the 8k marker, not massive but, after 8k, it can take the wind out of your sails a bit but all in all a lovely race, great tech tee in the goodie bag and well run. Thank you to the brilliant marshalling. Date of review: July 1, 2012
In short: Small, friendly race, lovely route, very hot, tacky t-shirt In full: Some very good runners for a such a small field, well organised, friendly affair, kids fun run before was good to watch and made it all the more a friendly event. Undulating throughout so not really PB material, but very enjoyable nevertheless. Date of review: July 8, 2011
In short: Tranquil run on a warm summers day In full: Lovely run through country lanes with undulations throughout. Small field, meant for quick getaway and able to settle into my goal pace. Well organised and marshalled. Seemed alot of club runners so not sure whether it would suit a beginner and due to country lanes the atmosphere was lacking. In fact, despite glorious weather, very few people at the start/finish to cheer on the runners. Hopefully back next year Date of review: July 3, 2011
