Can't fault it in anyway. Friendly participants. had a fe nice chats on the way round. Can't make my mind up about the subways though....good or bad? Date of review: April 28, 2008
In short: Very good In full: Organisation was second to none coupled with a loudspeaker announcer that you could actually understand. Loads of water stations and sponges, lots of marshals and helpers that all knew their job. Then a gooody bag with jelly babys, a tee shirt, a medal and a lucozade!! need i go on?!?!?!?

In short: Saw a different side of Bracknell today, was that really the place that is home to the world worst shopping precinct and immaculately planned ring road??? Top race, nice to be off the roads and have a few twists and turns... Date of review: April 27, 2008
In short: A good value, very well organised race In full: A very well organised race, with plenty of water staions and enthusiastic volunteers. Facilities at start were good with car parks close to the start and plenty of toilets. Not great scenery, but I wasn't really expecting much. Some interesting inclines around miles 5-7, with short descents. Last couple of miles through woodland were pleasant and I managed to get around before the finish got too slippery. Nice goody bag. Will be back next year. Date of review: April 27, 2008
In short: Excellent management and marshalling - well done and thanks to all the marshalls and volunteers In full: I will be back!
Not the greatest scenery, but better than Reading [if you ignore the stadium]!
Excellent organaisation and marshalling and theh availability of water and sponges was fantastic. Other race organisers please take note!
The denizens of Bracknell deserve a pat on the back for their enthusiastic support, even through the thunderstorm.
Thank you all.
I had an OK race - 1'47". A bit disappointed with the time but the hill from 7 - 9 miles and all the ups and downs make this race feel longer than it is [if that is not too stupid?].
Back on the road after an 18 month lay off and looking to get back to the glory days of sub 1'40". Amsterdam Marathon in October and Ranelagh Half Marathon in Richmond next up. Realistically looking to beat 1'45" at Richmond.
