In short: Good fast low key race In full: Wasn't sure what to expect with this being near Slough, but found it to be a nice rural course, with enough variety in the undualtions and route to keep the mind ticking over.
1.8 laps is much better than 2 laps, especially as it bypassed the one long long drag! It's funny, I wouldn't even consider the incline anything near a hill in normal circumstances, but in a flat race it felt a bit of a bind...especially as it was such a long straight road!
However, hit a big pb so was delighted with the day's work. Weather was ideal, overcast and a little cold, but nothing major and no real rain! Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: Fantastic all-round; thank you! In full: This is a GREAT race, mostly flat with a gentle climb from about 4 to 5 kays; but, what goes up, must go down.Organisation was excellent, very friendly marshalls and, being run on the tar,through woodland, made the course very scenic. Highly recommended, I shall be back next year! Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: Lovely, well organised flat race In full: Given it was the first year of this race the organisation was fantastic, nice goody bag and a medal. The marshalls were also very supportive. Well done Black Park Runners! Date of review: October 3, 2010

In short: A super race, quick scenic (for Slough) course and well organised with lots of friendly marshalls In full: A lovely race in a nice setting - wouldn't guess it was only a couple of miles from Slough. The 2 lap course was fast, on country lanes with very little traffic, but lots of friendly and encouraging marshalls. The only (very slightly) negative comments are to do with the prizes: Prizes for the winnners, other than trophies would have been nice - but then it was a cheap race to enter, so can't have it both ways I guess. Also, I think that the organisers already know that the spot prize draw didn't work very well - although it did mean that I got something. Overall though, a great race - and the icing on the cake? I didn't even have to queue for the loo. Date of review: October 3, 2010

In short: well organized and enjoyable 10k In full: Well organized event. Nice warm up route to the start line.Marshells gave good clear instructions and very good support.
