In short: Friendly and well organised with a nice couple of hills thrown in! In full: I really enjoyed entering this event. The organisation was excellent and there was a friendly atmosphere around the race. It was traffic free course with a couple of hills to test you but there were lots friendly locals shouting encouragement to make up for them! Date of review: September 8, 2008

In short: Simply put, this is a very well organised club event. Well done & thank you to everyone involved. In full: My second appearence at Overton, & it won't be my last. I will beat those hills & dip under thirty minutes, hopefully that will be next year. Date of review: September 8, 2008

In short: Well organised from parking to finish. But oh, those hills!!! In full: One of the 37 non-runners that did the single lap fun run (over 450 did the full coarse) and personally found it hard going. Hill to start with was a struggle, hill half way round even harder. Course didn't seem to go back down hill but I'm assured it did! Excellent organisation and marshalling, police on the roads controlling traffic were great. Very pleased with the low entry fee for the fun run (As I'm not a runner I'm not keen on paying high sums to get exhausted!) and got a medal at the end! Well done Overton Harriers.

In short: Hot & hilly but very enjoyable! In full: A great race.....lots of clubs represented but OK for us slower runners too. Its a tough course, with some short inclines & 1 long-ish climb....but oh! those down-hill stretches make it all worth while! Well organised and a lovely glass tankard to finish...well done Overton!

In short: Fantatstic Races for all the Family In full: An excellent race which produce an abundance of smiles. My daughter recieved her first ever race number for the under fives race and a medal at the end (all free to enter). I got a PB on a undulating course and my wife enjoyed the atmosphere, this race is a must. The rganisation is brilliant and atmosphere superb, this is the type of event that UKA should focus on to get all ages into athletics! Date of review: September 3, 2007
