In short: I like this race, excellent organisation from marshalls and plod, some road some cycle paths, fast and flat with a nice wide start In full: Beginner friendly and well organised, everything goes like clockwork. I always prefer medals to t-shirts, any chance of a different medal next year, or even just a different colour ribbon? PB'd by over two minutes even though it was a bit parky out there.

In short: Recommended In full: Well organised run. Lots of marshalls and a food mainly traffic free course. A couple of them fancied themselves as comedians which always makes for a nice light hearted moment to keep us smiling.
Plenty of facilities at the HQ with plenty of room for everyone. Good value for money race. A nice medal at the end and showers!
Very businesslike and functional no nonsense race. Many people got PBs today which is always pleasing to see. Striders did well. I recommend this race. Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: Flat with definite PB potential In full: Unfortunately had a cracked rib so just jogged round this myself, but the course is v flat and fast. Will run this with PB in mind next year. Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: My first 10K for a long time. Very enjoyable and good route. In full: The start was my only concern where we were all squeezed into a quite a narrow part. But apart from this the route was excellent. Some good hills too with the wind against us! Date of review: May 9, 2005
