In short: Well organised with friendly atmosphere In full: The scenery along the course wasn't pretty and wasn't dull but was in between - pretty dull. A pity because Woodhall Spa is a very attractive little town. A run through the woods might have been nice: no doubt that would have been harder to organise with nearly 1000 competitors.

In short: Good race In full: Car parking was a fair muddle, but otherwise this was yet another well-organised race. The finsih was a mess though, maybe the water and t-shirts could be at the end of the funnel rather than hidden among heaving crowds? Date of review: June 5, 2011
In short: A nice flat 10K In full: I'm not really a 10K runner but I enjoyed this one.A nice flat course perfect for a p.b. I had no problem entering on the day. It was a bit chaotic a the end though. Would of liked a Techinical t-shirt for the money. Also had the usual glory hunters at the start stood in the wrong place holding everyone else up. I'll be back again next year. Date of review: June 5, 2011
In short: Great summer run through country lanes for all runner levels. Missed having crowd support until end. Finish area bit of a shambles. In full: Didn't run well today, but the course would support a PB, especially on a calmer day. Course well organised, if lacking support, which would have been especially helpful when digging in on long country lanes. Lots of cheering at end, thanks. Finish area dreadful: very tight entry to finish line; an unbelievably stupidly placed tannoy van diagonally across it, limiting smooth passage of finishers, and a shambles collecting T-shirt and water. Could the race start 100m further back to enable finish on main road? Perhaps start and finish same place? Date of review: June 5, 2011
In short: This has been organised better in the past In full: A good day, a good run, a PB didn't think much at the finish line very caotic and disorganised. High light of the day bumping into an olympic athlete. Date of review: June 11, 2010
In short: OK - No major gripes In full: Definite PB potential so long as you don't start too near the back. I missed mine due to be completely unfit but really with perfect weather and a flat course this should have been nailed on. Agree t-shirts are a bit naff but can't understand moans about parking - seemed no problem to me. Marshalls supportive around course but no other support and roads weren't completely traffic free.
In short: I like to run, outloud I'll say, I think I'll run the Woodhall 10k In full: A well organised race, plenty of people, friendly marshalls, good water stations, good finish. And a rockin' PB to finish with. Yay! Date of review: June 8, 2010
