In short: Great event and well worth doing In full: Really enjoyable race. A few challenging hills on an undulating course, but still PB potential. Goody bag and T-shirt are great, but the organisation and marshalls really make it worthwhile. It's not all traffic free, but it doesn't need to be. Weather was great too. All in all, well worth doing and I'll be there again next year. Date of review: October 8, 2012
In short: Really enjoyable, friendly and well organised In full: Great race and a great course. One or two challenging climbs, but not as many as I remembered from my last visit. Lovely weather today helped - misty start with the sun coming through later - and the marshalls throughout were fantastic with clear instructions and lots of encouragement.
Not quite a pb for me today, but well in front of my target time, and I really enjoyed the race.
Thanks to Congleton Harriers and all the organisers. Date of review: October 7, 2012
In short: Great race, well run, with good running In full: Good organisation; chip timed, well marshaled. Nice atmosphere, great T-shirt - subtle, technical and uncluttered. Couldn't ask for more. Nice to see the Black Swan offering an extra drinks station, sadly only squash ;-) Got a pb which helps! Date of review: October 7, 2012

In short: The way races should be In full: This is how races should be. Really enjoyed it, fantastic marshalling and organisation. Great course, quite challenging and I managed to knock 10 mins off my 2010 time. The goody bag is the best I've had with a cuddly teddy bear and a snood both being quickly claimed by my two kids. The organisers have done a cracking job with all credit due, this is the way to do a race.
In short: A great well marshalled race will be back next year In full: A lovely scenic route with mixed abilities the marshals were very supportive and the race was well organised! A bit disappointed with the goody bag but the race price was excellent and supported local charities! Thank you fora great race! Date of review: October 9, 2011
