In short: A nice way to celebrate my 10th anniversary 10k In full: Another enjoyable Eynsham 10k. Shame about the cold showers in the school but a minor point for me. Well organised again with welcoming refreshments and friendly marshalls. Thanks Eynsham Roadrunners. Date of review: November 27, 2011
In short: Fast Course (if windy today) with excellent organisation In full: Excellent organisation and a very fast course, though the wind took the edge off it today. Most impressed with the live reults on the website too! Shame about the couple of short stretches of grass verge, and the narrow pavement along the A40 (into the wind!), but difficult for the organisers to safely avoid these I guess. Cakes, tea and sausage rolls at the end were a bargain! One question though - was there really only one sit down loo for the blokes or did I just not look hard enough?
In short: As usual excellent In full: As usual brilliant organisaton for this friendly 10k with a few twists and turns. Lovely sunshine this year. As always an excellent t-shirt too. Thanks to the Eynsham Roadrunners! Date of review: November 27, 2011
In short: Kinda new to racing (this being my 4th event) but obvious that this is a great event. Great atmosphere around the school with lots of friendly, helpful people around. I expect I'll be running this event for many years to come. Many thanks Date of review: December 12, 2010
In short: race was brilliant as always In full: Race was brilliant as always. Flat, fast, well organised, very friendly, hot showers and great cakes. Despite the very good conditions, I am not sure it rose above -5 throughout the race, the course was quick, frost and ice free, gritted where required and extremely well marshalled by enthausiastic and encouraging marshals despite the fact that they must have been so cold.

In short: Brilliant race as normal In full: It's definitely a PB course, as shown by so many runners I know today. But it's just at the wrong time of year for me - I'm never really fit enough for it! Great facilities - lovely coffee and cake afterwards and the shower was lovely and warm (I didn't have one - I was just told!). The marshals and organisers did an amazing job.

In short: A proper road raceon a good course In full: It was below freezing the whole day - minus 4 at race start. The organisers and their wonderful crew of marshals did not allow this to affect the race in any way. It must have been so cold standing out on the route, but without them there would be no race. They were the stars of the event - not any of us runners. It is a nice course through and round the town, with no hills, only a few gentle inclines and some real fast bits. Good T shirt too .... Well done Eynsham! Date of review: November 28, 2010
