In short: Lovely course, clockwork organisation, excellent t-shirt In full: A really nice course around Wisley Common, with some tarmac, leaves, puddles, sand, puddles, hills, tree roots and more to contend with. It all added to a sense of adventure and made this a welcome alternative to yet-another-road 10k.
I'm surprised any runners encountered problems with the dog-runners. My experience was that they were polite and considerate of those around them, often moving aside to give the other runners more room to pass. The course was generally very wide (wide enough to get two buses through), so it didn't matter, and when the course narrowed it was only for a few moments.
My memory of the day was the great comararderie between the dog-runners and the other runners.
Well done to the organisers for a lovely t-shirt and the high-quality catering!
In short: Great race and better organization this year In full: Lovely scenic couse that is challenging in a nice way. More distamce markers this year and overall organisation was better. Like dogs but could have done without them in the race, the trails are just a bit too narrow for that although the people running with them did seem to have good control. Wish it hadn't been 300m longer than 10k : ) Date of review: November 6, 2010
In full: Fab weather,compared to hail in 2009! Scenic course, need more stamina than road! But is this a human race or a dog trek? They got in the way, people having to check stride. Risk of injury. No dogs at human races. Better org, finish location better, and t shirt better colour than last year! Thanks to organisers and marshalls. Date of review: November 6, 2010
In short: Excellent .... apart from the dogs In full: This was a well organised race, on a really scenic course in unseasonally pleasant weather, but why the dogs? There was nothing in the pre race publicity online or anywhere else. Had I known about the dogs my decision whether or not to enter would have been different. Sorry, but trail run or canni-cross, but not both. Date of review: November 6, 2010

In short: Great fun splashing through muddy puddles. Hailstones a bit much though! In full: Good fun but could have been more information about the distance from the car park to the start and could have done with nice warm tea in the mugs after having to wait in the cold to get them.
