In short: For some reason, I thought this would be a stroll... but it is actually quite a testing run. The marshalls / organisers were very friendly and the event well managed. Date of review: September 24, 2006
In short: Does everything right, nice race In full: For a small race this is tremendously well organised: A lot of larger races could learn from this; accuracte km markers; well marshalled; lots of water; excellent goody bag; good value.
Nice atmosphere too with good support from local residents and other runners competing in the shorter races.
Course scenic and almost traffic free, although a bit hilly in places so probably not good for PB seekers. Always seems to attract unseasonally hot weather so plan your late summer break to coincide and you are guaranteed nice weather!
Worth doing and I will be back next year. Date of review: September 24, 2006

In short: Small friendly race In full: Small friendly race in warm conditions, however i lost 30 secs at the end as myself and a few others took the wrong turn just before the finish, apparently the marshall wen't awol. Date of review: September 28, 2005
In short: Enjoyable, well organised and interesting course In full: Who would have thought that the spectators would be in t-shirts and shorts at the end of September? Date of review: September 28, 2005
In short: Harder than it looks In full: I train along this route sometimes too. It's harder than it looks,it's a bit sneaky, you think it's flat but there are steady climbs that get your pulse up and can catch you out rather than those clear hill that you adjust pace for. This year had random head winds and was a hot day, I was a few minutes slower than I wanted. All the people I talked to found it hard this year. Great race however nice set up i like it.

In short: Good race. Worth having a go. In full: Run along flat country lanes but watch out for cars. saw a few take wrong turn near end because no marshalls were there. Very friendly. Nice village. Date of review: September 25, 2005
