In short: A great run in the country, well organised and an interesting course. In full: Well done to the organisers - an improvement on the car parking from last year. Well organised and I enjoyed the course which has good mix of trails, tracks and road. Date of review: June 7, 2009
In short: Scenic, hilly and thankfully dry (barring the odd puddle) In full: Mostly off-road with some ups and downs, the race was quicker than I had expected. The chip timing was a bonus -- results were printed and pinned to a board on the common -- although you needed to allow time to pick up the chip as it wasn't included in the postal pack.
Good atmosphere, great scenery and I think I'll be back next year... Date of review: June 7, 2009
In short: Wonderful scenic race. Cup of tea at finish. Perfect! In full: Second time I have done this 10k. Mainly off road through wonderful countryside. Couldn't work out the actual starting line but well marked otherwise. Lovely cup of tea at the finish (paid for). No goody bag this year and timing chips collected not sent out. I nearly forgot to collect mine! Well marshalled. A great race. Date of review: June 7, 2009
In short: Lovely countryside - great all terrain course In full: I quite enjoyed the down-beat commentary from the marshall at about 8km. Better parking than last year. Really pleasant atmosphere. Date of review: June 7, 2009
In short: Well organised, great scenery. In full: I'm not a big fan of off-road, but entered this one in the spirit of trying a new race every now and again. I loved it! Yes, there were a few issues with getting a large number of cars up a slippery bank, but the marshals were great and the situation was dealt with well. The village fete atmosphere at the finish made it a day out, rather than just another race, and the course itself made for a really enjoyable run. I'd definitely do it again.
