In short: Really well organised race that does exactly what it sets out to do. In full: About as good a pre-marathon run out as you'll find anywhere. Great value for money with friendly helpful marshals and a course that's scenic enough to kep you distracted. Excellent! Date of review: March 22, 2011
In short: Ideal warm-up for London In full: Friendly, well organised warm-up for those running a spring marathon.
Although lacking the bells and whistles of other races (no chip timing or goody bag), the race offers very good value for the £10 entry fee with a scenic course and on-the-day choice of running 15 or 21 miles.
In short: Excellent VFM and well organised In full: A lovely sunny day, second loop of the 6 miles seems so much harder the second time around ;-) Marshalls excellent, love the jelly babies. Briliant prep for a marathon, although some mad folks were doing it for fun.... Date of review: March 21, 2011
In short: Pat on the MABAC In full: On the same weekend with Fleet and Reading Half's going on, this little gem of a pre-London training run does the business. Very good value for money, well marshalled, quiet country lanes and nice buzzy atmosphere. Date of review: March 21, 2011
In short: An excellent training race In full: A very well organised event and ideal as training for Vienna or another spring marathon (!!). Everything about this low-key event is well thought out - from the well-marshalled course, with three loops to keep things interesting, beautiful scenery, well-placed water stations. It was interesting to see so many people running who had been at the Surrey Spitfire the week before, these two events certainly help get through the long-long training runs.
