In short: ok for first timers but do some hill work. In full: Hard to reviw as this was my first race but it has not put me off. The last hill was a bit sharp at about 5.5 miles but that has taught me to do more hill work. Also would not say it was a flat course nor a hilly race. Time for me was 50.30 mins so i came a way happy for a first event. We had to park about 5-10min walk from the start but was not a problem as it was nice to walk back and cool off.

In short: friendly, fun, undulating with a hill at the end! In full: A generally flat course with lots of little hills going over canals, rivers motorway and one final decent hill at the end to add some mental & physical challenge - and made a PB a bit more difficult. Scenic country lanes and villages. Sports shop/stall and bacon butties/soup for sale added nice touches to a friendly and fun 10k. Best arrive early for parking. Date of review: January 14, 2008
In short: A New Year must, thanks Diane for keeping it going! In full: Love this race, lots of people to fit into the start venue but if everyone's sensible and takes responsibility! Well done Diane and helpers this is a local tradition and great to catch up with all local runners. Course is enjoyable, seems more down than up so always a bonus! The wind was always a head wind?! So many prizes on offer!
