In short: Quick and scenic in places In full: Definitely a good race to do if you want to see what sort of time you're capable of on the day! A nice mix of countryside and housing on the route which splits up distance very well... the marshals and spectators are very supportive. From the start it quite quickly opens up on to the open road so the usual race start congestion quickly dissipates Date of review: May 6, 2013
In short: A well designed course with great organisation In full: It rained and yet it was still wonderful. A quick course that was obviously designed by a running club as the ups were gradual and the downs encouraging. Very well organised, lovely tea and cake at the end and lots of loos available. A good turn out and wide field makes this a good one for beginners. What more can we ask for?... well some sunshine for next year please. Date of review: May 10, 2012
In short: As always very well organised by RRR. I love this race as it statrs my 10k season. In full: I did not mind the drizzle and not cold once you got moving. I always just feel sorry for the fete organisers as most times I have run here it rains.
Good course and fast finish over the last 1K. I will be back next year and expect RRR to sort the rain out! Date of review: May 7, 2012

In short: Excellent race . Well organised and good support despite the rain In full: A good course with one or two hills but flat enough for PB territory. Well organised with very friendly marshalls and plenty of support out throughout the course. Date of review: May 7, 2012
In short: Well organised, flat-ish, fast race-well done RRR! In full: This was my 3rd time at Shinfield and my 1st time over the changed course. I much prefer this course now, scenic and with no scary climbs. Well organised and cheerfully marshalled, thanks to all involved in such cold, damp conditions.Mugs? Medals? I'm just glad to finish!
