In short: A 10k with real PB potential along country lanes starting, following a figure of 8, and finishing in the village. In full: A higely enjoyable race despite the appalling weather. The route is excellent following a figure of 8 along very quiet counrty lanes. It isn't hilly and the downhill finish is welcome.
There is plenty of support along the route as the race starts and finishes in the village, plus cuts through the village again at the midway point.
This race has real PB potential with the added plus of chip timing so official times should be spot on.
A huge thanks to the marshalls and organisers for a really well organised event plus standing around for hours in awful weather all for for the benefit of us runners. Date of review: May 28, 2007
In short: Fast, friendly and fun In full: A fast 10k over a rural course witha good Tshirt. Pretty flat except the last 3k which are all downhill. The atmosphere is great thanks to the course weaving in and out of the village. And at the finish you've got all the pleasures of the village festival. Date of review: May 28, 2007
In short: Best local race this year so far In full: I've done this race every year since I started running and it's one of my favourites. The course is mainly flat so good times are possible also the route comes back into the village at 5k so supporters get to see the start finish and middle of the race. The organisation is first rate all the kilometres are clearly and accurately marked and after the race has finished there's plenty of stalls to look at and pubs to drink in.
