In short: Well organised, close to my house, does what it says on the tin In full: This was my 3rd time of running the Fleet 10k - it's about a 5 minute walk to the start from my house. It's good value for money with plenty of drinks/chocolate at the end and a medal. A gently undulating course, can be a bit tough on the second lap. Lots of support and great marshalling as always.
I was much slower than in previous years but still managed to bag a bottle of wine as part of a team prize. And that's my only criticism - the prize-giving needs to be a lot slicker. Sort out who has won the prizes, make sure you have a working microphone and make the winners feel a bit special! But otherwise a great event and I will be back next year.

In short: As good as always In full: One of my favourite events, this is a pleasant two lap course along the carriageways of closed roads in leafy suburban Fleet with chip timing. Thank you to the organisers, the marshals, other volunteers and the tolerant drivers. A nice medal, bottle of water, banana and choice of biscuit or fun size chocolate bar were waiting for us at the finish. I would have preferred to have paid an additional £1 for race number to be posted to me because I always struggle with attaching them to clothes I’m already wearing. Date of review: November 4, 2012
In short: Well organised and enjoyable In full: An enjoyable local race, as with all urban races the scenery was a bit dull and there were too many cars around (although the roads on the course itself were closed and the course was very efficiently marshalled) but this was a very well organised event and excellent value for money. The town centre location meant that there was plenty of parking and the community centre was a good venue to wait for the start on a cold-ish day. Thanks to Fleet AC for excellent organisation and an enjoyable event. Date of review: October 29, 2012
In short: A good, well run local event In full: Impressed with the organisation, the number & quality of marshals, and to get chip timing, medal, snack, lead vehicle for a very reasonable price was impressive.
Decent start location with indoor waiting, hot drinks, bacon butties and decent loos.
First lap through the high street with supporters was good, and a welcome boost on the second lap, but it's still a town centre run along roads and it is undulating. Even so, lovely local running club that deserves a thumbs up for the day
In short: Great Home. Town Race In full: Well organised. Marshals fantastic and good to see residents cheering the runners on. Very pleased that they were to able close the roads for the most part, which many other 10ks do not do. Undulating course with good potential for a PB. Definitely will run it next year Date of review: October 28, 2012
In short: Great race and a new PB again this year In full: This is a local race for me (5 minutes' walk from my house) and there's nothing to criticise - it's well organised, has encouraging marshals, a reasonable number of spectators, you get a medal and something to eat at the end and it costs £10. Great value, and I got a PB too and a bottle of wine for one of the team prizes too. It's a fairly dull two lap course and is undulating but nothing too horrible. Well done to Fleet & Crookham AC.
