In short: A well organised race in a very pretty village In full: Picture postcard Frampton village green makes for a great location for the start/finish area although having to run past the BBQ and the Pub at the start was cruel ! ;-)
A fast mostly flat course, well marshalled and a few nice views of the river on the way, will definitely be back for more next year. Oh and the burger was well worth the wait ! Date of review: July 15, 2008
In short: Well done - given the circumstances, though it got dark... In full: This race was postponed due to the severe flooding earlier in the year - so unfortunately a few of the slower runners would have been finishing in the twilight.
The course was flat and fast as advertised (I knocked about 3 minutes off my PB) and there was a good sized field.
The half pint of cider at the end was a good touch (though I think the bar staff in the pub must have got fed up with explaining that we had to go elsewhere to get our drinks - perhaps some guidance when given the token that the drinks were being served at the yacht club?) and the BBQ was fantastic (real meat in the burgers!!!).
I'm sure we'll be back... Date of review: September 26, 2007
In short: nice race but no info before hand In full: i don't if i just didn't get i a course map or there was not one. why did a 10k only have mile markers that did not say k or m this messed with my head and stoped me running a much faster time still a good race for beginners and for setting a p.b.

In short: Great conditions for a PB if I had only trained prior to the race........ In full: This is my first time of doing this race and everything about it was great, apart from the fact I had not trained for two weeks prior to the race. With such a PB potential I will not make the same mistake next year. Date of review: July 13, 2006
