In short: 3 lap race with hill climbs In full: The hill climb was a tiring because it had to be climbed three times. The organisation was pretty good; although the end wasn’t that obvious (I would have liked a sign saying 400 metres etc. The finish line its self was confusing because it wasn’t obvious if it was at the start or end of the coned session. I wasn’t offered a mug, not sure if they ran out of them? All in all a good hard training session for London Marathon; with a PB thrown in for good measure. Date of review: March 13, 2011
In short: Well marshalled, well organised and Very friendly. In full: Failed to complete due to injury, but very impressed by the set up. Good parking just off the motorway and a short way in we are in the country. Lots of helpful marshalls. Will definitely be trying again next year. Thanks to all that helped make it possible.

In short: Good event in time for London In full: Well organised and marshalled. Running the hills 3 times was a bit tough but then there are 3 downhills. Suggestion: maybe put a bin at each mile marker so runners have a chance to discard gel wrappers etc without littering. Date of review: March 13, 2011
In short: well organised In full: I was rather concerned with the 3 lap format but it worked very well . Hills were tough , especially at 17 miles but at least we'd already been up it twice so we knew what to expect . T shirt at the finish was top quality . Would defo do it again Date of review: March 13, 2011
In short: Very Well Marsahhaled and Organised In full: This course is far superior than the old Glos 20 course. 3 laps did not bother me. Hills on the last lap were a killer, but it is difficult to find a flat course in Gloucestershire, I should know I live here. Very well marshalled. Lots of encouragement, professional. Considering a new course had to be devised, organisation was good also. The good weather helped. I liked the mug, very pratical. You can never have enough mugs in the kitchen. I have enough medals and t-shirts. So more mugs next year. My Garmin like others I spoke to clocked 20.2, so maybe the course was long or maybe Garmins aren't as accurate as they should be. I will be back. Date of review: March 19, 2010
In short: Excellent support from all the marshals throughout the run, well needed by the 3rd loop In full: Enjoyed run, helped by excellent weather conditions. Thanks again to the marshals and supports dotted around the course. A big thumbs up to the fit blond lady running what appeared to be in the wrong direction, she was offering plenty of support, many thanks. If anyone knows where she came from and where she was going please let me know.
Last years poor reward of goody bag with a grand total of tee-shirt was bettered this year by the presentation of a mug! I think we were all mugged. Date of review: March 10, 2010
