In short: very hilly makes you sweat! In full: Did it last year said id never do it again and there i was on the start line doing it again, very hot today just as challenging as last year but makes you feel good when uve finished! Date of review: August 31, 2008
In short: Probably not one for first-timers! In full: Some tough hills there. Even so, enthusiastic and cheery marshalls. Great goody bag and tee. Some fine scenery en route. I'll be back! Date of review: August 31, 2008
In short: Challenging course, strong field, great t-shirt! In full: Scenic but tough course which seemed to attract a pretty strong field of runners. Not so much of a "fun run", as some other 10ks. Car parking was a bit chaotic at the leisure centre but otherwise, organisation was excellent. Would defo do again. Date of review: August 31, 2008
In short: Thanks Hermitage Harriers. In full: I really enjoyed this race. The organisation was very good, both at the start and at the end of the race. Will definitely look to do this one again if it is run next year. Date of review: September 11, 2007
In short: Well done Hermitage In full: Decided on Saturday night to run this one instead of another in Nottingham knowing it would be challenging. Wasn't disappointed at how hard the course was as I live near in Loughborough.
Well marshalled, well supported and vfm was excellent which puts larger well established races to shame. Will be looking to run this next year for sure and can see this getting a popular local event next year Date of review: September 10, 2007
In short: Well organised, hilly race. In full: Very well organised race, Marshalls did excellent job, very friendly - thanks to everyone involved.
Very hilly first 4 miles (up mainly) but last couple were pretty much all downhill. T-shirt very nice grey and liked the inflatable finish line - great to actually be able to see a finish line from a few hundred yards out.
Please don't let me have #1 next year! Date of review: September 10, 2007
