In short: Great event. In full: Two new good points for this year were the warm up and a fine selection of drinks and snacks at the end. However, what makes this race great for me is being able to run safely on the surface of closed roads, on a pleasant course with gentle undulations, with tolerant motorists and great marshals who help to keep us safe (thank you) and are so encouraging. It’s very good value too with good parking. Date of review: October 27, 2014
In short: The crowd on the High Street provide motivation to keep going for the second circuit. In full: Big thank you to the friendly marshals. There were loads of them. Date of review: October 27, 2014
In short: Great Local Race In full: I got a PB despite the gently undulating course. Very nice running through Fleet high-street and being cheered on, and a very familiar route having done the half earlier this year.
Got a great atmosphere and welcoming feel, and the medal is great too- it's nice to have a small-ish run with a unique medal! Date of review: October 27, 2014
In short: Fun event and well organised In full: Really enjoyed this event again! Home town, so easy to travel to and take part. Saw a Marshall dealing with a horse box owner being very abusive, but was keeping his calm and doing a great job. Very supportive crowds and friendly competitors. As only half the road is closed, you rely on drivers on opposite carriageway being cautious. Some were driving far too fast, but can't blame the organisers for that! Date of review: October 27, 2014
In short: Well organised, well marshalled and well worth it! In full: First time I have done this race and was impressed with the whole event. Being a two lap race running through the town twice was great for both supporters and runners, for convenience and atmosphere respectively. Marshals were excellent with their encouragement and organisation! Only little quibble is my (and others) official time seems to be two or three seconds more than my Garmin. Well done to Fleet & Crookham AC for putting on a great race! Date of review: October 27, 2014
In short: Great 10k with PB potential and faultless organisation. See you next year! In full: All good except that there was no obvious start line, so those of us who like to use a sports watch and were not at the front did not know when to start our times....I just guessed the start position and was disappointed when my own timing was about 20 secs faster than the official time, which was in effect just the gun time. A timing mat at he start would have made it all more accurate. Date of review: October 27, 2014
