In short: Great race around country roads In full: Undulating course, well organised, good value for money and well marshalled. System to pick up number at start worked well. Small size allowed for ability to pick up planned race pace quickly at the start. Date of review: July 7, 2010
In short: Undulating but allows for quick start and finish In full: Course starts level and you will find yourslef on smooth declines and then smooth inclines. Although on road you wouldnt really notice any traffic. Date of review: July 5, 2010
In short: Tadley 10k - simple, yet effective In full: A very well organised event, with a friendly mix of club runners, improvers and first-timers. The course is playful and certainly undulates with the bump at 8k a "nice" surprise for tired legs.
My second year on this course and I took nearly four minutes of my PB! Date of review: July 5, 2010
In short: Well Done Tadley Runners In full: Tough with the Temperature's today. This is my 2nd year running in this one.The hill at 8km is still as tough as I remembered! Nice T-Shirt and lucozade was great at the finish too. Only moan would be that I think you could do with more toilet facilities. Date of review: July 5, 2010
In short: Well organised - an enjoyable challenge In full: My second year for this race and I have enjoyed it both occasions. It's never going to be a PB course with those "undulations" - and the sharp hill at the end of Violet Lane. This year was warm too. Well done everyone who ran today - see you next year!

In short: Well organised run but a bit of a challenge In full: This run is not a pb run, it has some steady hills and one short but steep hill at the 8km mark which took it's toll on some people and with the heat made you puff hard. There were two water stations en route which was good as the temp was about 25. The course was well marshalled and run entirely on the road. Plenty of parking and easy to find for the start. Surprised at how strong the field was with series runners taking part.
The only major down fall on this race was the toilet facilities in the school, there were two cubicles for the men for the entire racing field and simply not good enough. Race organisers please take note for next year. Date of review: July 4, 2010
In short: Pleasant run on quiet countryside lanes In full: First time at this small, friendly event and an enjoyable morning out with fellow locals from Basingstoke parkrun and my running club. I found the course fairly challenging with a few undulations throughout. I knew about 'the hill' at 8k (Violet Hill Road?) but it was much steeper than I had anticipated! Dug in and ran up the whole thing, received a thank you from a nice man at the top who said I "dragged him up"! The marshalls were very vocal and the km markers were bang on which is always nice. Lucozade, a t-shirt and free massages at the end round off a very enjoyable Sunday morning out. Thanks to Tadley Runners! Date of review: July 4, 2010
In short: Well organised, enjoyable and scenic race In full: This is a really great race through some fabulous countryside. The organisation was good and friendly. Great T-shirt. I will be back next year. Date of review: July 6, 2009
In short: fantastic race this year In full: I ran this race last year and I wasn't happy with the organization. This year was very different, the organization was brill, the t-shirt was a really nice one, a nice sports drink at the finish line and I beat my course record by over 3 mins.
