In short: A Good Day In full: A good generally well organised race. I agree with earlier comments about what goody bags, finished well up the field but wasnt offered a goody bag and didnt even know there were any. But banana and choc bar were nice finish items. Overall, very enjoyable course and will be back next year! Date of review: June 18, 2007
In short: Very Scenic and nice challenging course In full: Hot day, nicely undulating, was willing the 7 mile drink station to come, but it was closer to 8 mile. Locals with hosepipes etc were very welcome. Date of review: June 18, 2007
In short: The most scenic road race in the Midlands ! In full: A wonderful race around country lanes, through scenic villages and past timber framed cottages. Reasonably hilly, and the weather was warm again this year, but I guess my major reason for struggling was that this was my 15th race in 29 days. Excellent organisation - shame about the over officious timekeepers who apparently disqualified the runner-up because he jumped the start by half a second. On a 9 mile road race - come on ?

In short: really good event In full: really enjoyable race - i found the first 5 miles and the last mile quite challenging esp in the sun but this made for a good varied run. i think runners would have benefited from some additional marshals though as occassionally i found myself moving from the left to right hand side of the road because other runners ahead of me were, for no apparent reason!

In short: I can see clearly now the rain has gone! In full: Very enjoyable race. Interesting course - not too hilly (seemed to be more downhill bits than uphill bits!!), lots to look at on the way round and well supported with marshalls etc.
In short: A very good race In full: This race was very well organised, its just a shame there wasn`t enough goody bags for all runners, Thankyou to all marshalls for your support on route especialy those at the water stations, despite the recent wet weather this was a very hot day, well done to all those runners who wanted to get under 65 mins with me, I enjoyed your company as my running buddy is injured @ the moment, see you all next year.
