In short: A gorgeous sunday race. Challenging, with some monster hills, but the scenery was to die for. Well organised and a lovely medal at the end for your efforts. Well done!! Date of review: September 22, 2009
In short: Fantastic route, well marked and marshalled and the weather turned out to help too. In full: A lovely relaxed feel to this, with friendly people and a real mix of abilities. The first 3 miles lure one in to a sense of bucolic well-being, (including a "Field of Dreams" section through the maize... "...if you mark it, they will run !" )until the main road is crossed and a punishing ascent marks the start of the more difficult stuff. Narrow paths might have made passing difficult had I been in any state to try, although the field had thinned out by then. The route and views reminded one of why England's countryside can be unbeatable. The weather was glorious for running - a cool start and a sunny finish. Could be a bit tricky in parts after a bit of rain, but I'm told some people like that! At the end I felt like I'd had a challenge and hopefully next year I'll be fit to try it again.

In full: Excellent organisation, still early days as far as being a bigger field and more competitive. A lot bigger than last years attendance and becoming a great training run pre- Henley Half. Very friendly, challenging and an enjoayble very scenic run! Be back next year to reclaim the ladies title!. Welldone for a well organised race only in its 2nd year Date of review: September 21, 2009
In short: Wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning in Marlow In full: Very friendly race, some lovely views of the river and fields of corn. Beginning fine, middle neary made me cry, last mile or so fine. 3 generous water stations, needed in that heat.
Overall, very good, I'd do it again. Date of review: September 21, 2009
In short: A lovely sunny day with some rather tough hills! In full: A great little event with friendly marshalls and very well signposted course that had a mixture of road, field and trail to be lots of fun. i enjoyed the hills except that first one after the main road. I'd do it again but don't let it get too big... that was part of the enjoyment. Date of review: September 20, 2009
In short: What a fantastic course... In full: Fantastic event, really enjoyed it. This felt like a friend showing you their favourite training course. Would not want to do the steep narrow bits with an angry crowd but hopefully this race wont grow too big... Date of review: September 20, 2009
In short: Lovely circuit; great atmosphere In full: Really friendly organisers and runners: I will definitely come back next year. The hills are no joke and, I'll be honest, I had to walk a couple of them. Nonetheless I was pleased with my time. Date of review: September 20, 2009
