In short: Nice Friendly Event. Great Marshals In full: This is a nice event with varied terrain and the marshals were some of the best I have seen for an event of this type. Organisation was great from race numbers with chips on to lots of goodies at the finish. Would definitely do this again Date of review: December 2, 2013
In short: Great winter run. Less hanging around than the big events In full: Very scenic and enjoyable virtually flat run. Well organised staggered start to reduce crowding throughout narrow sections. Well marshalled and friendly. Would be concerned about tow path and grass sections if bad weather. Good value unless you need another T shirt! Date of review: December 2, 2013
In short: Decent race. Low key. Good for PB seekers. In full: Enjoyed this run along my normal training route. It's a no-frills race though well organised. All the right boxes ticked - parking, toilets, efficient bag drop, medal and refreshments at the end, etc etc. Suffers from a slight lack of atmosphere and enthusiasm, as if most people are turning up for a training run on steroids.
Still, very well organised and good PB potential. Will be back. Date of review: December 1, 2013
In full: An early start means not much traffic about, so not too much bunching in the first few km. The orgaisers & marshal's make a big effort and that is a big plus for any race. Always a must do race for me, recomend you try it in 2014. Date of review: December 1, 2013
In short: My favourite event so far! In full: Fantastic race- very well organised. Everyone kept warm in the club before the race and then out for a 5 min warm up. Perfect number of runners, great route along the river and then finishing with a medal and chocolate bars- brilliant! Date of review: December 13, 2012
In short: Well organized, friendly race with enthusiastic marshalls. A quick course - flat with hardly any undulation although 2-3k on towpath was quite uneven. Will be back again next year. Date of review: December 2, 2012
