In short: Well organised, plenty of toilets (a rarity) and a nice course. One grumble and a bit beyond the organisers control - some real ankle-twisting road edges & you need to be very careful when keeping left for traffic. Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: A great 10 miler but a bit monotonous doing 2 laps on rural roads which all look the same! In full: Very well organised, great marshalls. One big downside....after the achievement of running 20 miles you would expect a medal or some sort of momento. But what you get is a biro! Thats a real shame. I wouldn't even mind paying a bigger entry fee just to get something nice at the end. Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: Brilliantly organised, pb potential, fantastic marshals, great preparation for London. In full: It was freezing today so not as many spectators as usual, but those who were there really helped. 20 miles seemed like a huge milestone and doing it at Bramley is a very positive experience. I liked the pen in the goody bag too! Thanks to all concerned- well done Reading Road Runners. Date of review: February 20, 2005
In short: Another well organised race. In full: Again a very well organised race (well done again Reading Road Runners) although the official car parks are, through circumstance, a little distant from the start/finish unless you know the locality and a few niche spots within a few hundred yards.
The race is fairly flat countryside with only three or four mild inclines on each of the two laps and the only other drawback is a lack of atmosphere as (unsurprisingly) there aren't many hardy spectators prepared to brave the elements at this time of year.
