In short: No easier! In full: The long drag doesn't get any easier, no matter how you try to run it! Stiil - 2nd time this year, and, once again, thoroughly enjoyed it! From marshalls in the car park to support on the way round, this really is a great race. Well done and thanks to all concerned! Date of review: March 13, 2011
In short: tough. hilly. well organised. In full: i've been to this park many times but you don't appreciate how hilly it is until you run in it! Well organised race - having the water station in the part of the course where the two laps were was a very good idea - with encouraging, friendly marshalls. would suggest though that they need some portaloos nearer to the start line!

In short: A challenging first 10k In full: Knole Park is a very nice location and the course was challenging for a first timer like me. I will do it again next year, hoping that I can finish a bit higher. I find it a bit odd (and i'm taking into account the gun time and chip time) that my finishing position was different from what was posted up at the Leisure Centre. It would have been good if there actually been a horn or something to start the event.
In short: Lovely atmosphere and lovely grounds to run in! In full: A lovely place to run in! We were lucky that it hadn't been raining recently, as it would have been pretty awful - mud wise. My first real cross country race, and I have to admit I found the hill/incline very hard. Well organised and a good atmosphere. Date of review: March 18, 2010
In short: Great organisation. In full: A great course (wide and open) that is reasonably challenging in parts. A well organised race with cheerful marshalls and helpers. A good atmosphere Date of review: March 16, 2010
In short: A tough course ! In full: Ran this as part of my marathon training so on tired legs ie after a 22.5 mile run on Friday. So I thought the 1st 2.5 km and 5 to 7 km was rather hardwork, but the flatter and downhill bits did help me make up lost time. Not ideal for a PB due to the terrain and gradient. Very pleasant place to run, I saw lots of Deer while I was warming up and the setting was very pretty indeed. Well organised but the start a little premature - we were promised a count down which I did not hear just a claxon and a mad dash. Date of review: March 16, 2010
