In short: Cheap on the cost but not the quality In full: I actually ran the 5k, but from what I could see was excellent marsahalling. You could easily hear the start gun, not too overcrowded. It was my 1st competitive race and I can't wait to have a go again next year.
In short: Another fantastic event by ARC In full: A fantastic day...well organised..great atmosphere...enjoyable in every way... Loved the memento at the finish. Also, great to be able to run alongside the marathon legend's Dave and Mac...fantastic. Thanks to all the marshalls too Date of review: June 11, 2008
In short: This is a benchmark race, good fun, great course! In full: Beutiful weather, great organsiation, even the parking was like clockwork, no one has mentioned the endless bananas, apples, red bull & water at the end - the cricket pitch curcuit was great, even the course itself is nice and balanced, no big hauls to worry about.

In short: Hills and heat but a splendid event. In full: First time at the Aldridge 10 k and it's a lovely challenging course even if it's not really a PB course. It was good fun playing Dodge The Fire Engine just after the start! Great finish round the cricket field at the end. Great marshalling and great support from the locals. Date of review: June 9, 2008
In short: A great way to spend a Sunday morning. In full: A lovely setting for a race. I can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday morning. No problems at all with parking. It felt very inclusive, with earlier races for children and a 5K race. Didn't hear the starting pistol at all! This was my first 10K and it felt great to be running with other people. A very warm day, 24 degrees, but it didn't bother me too much. Quite undulating, with not too many steep sections. Liked the lap of the cricket field at the end. I have now got the bug and want to do more! Date of review: June 9, 2008
In short: Very good race, well organised and good course In full: This is the 2nd time I have done this race and I will definitely be back again...It was a killer because of the heat (possible earlier start next year?) but the stewarding was excellent and there was a very good atmosphere. The prize is great as well, and with the reasonable entry cost this race offers great value compared to other races that my club take part in! Well done ARC! :) Date of review: June 9, 2008

In short: Outstanding 10K race In full: Really loved running this 10K, i wasn't chasing my PB on a day like it was, extremely warm day paid ends to that. It was brilliantly organinsed and supported, really good turnout, very good challenging course, i actually enjoyed the last hill as it provided some much needed shade from the sun. Absolute top drawer event and loved the engraved glass momento....well done to Aldridge Running club....to you i salute Date of review: June 9, 2008
