In short: A good race...Not sure what to do with my bum-bag though? In full: My local race, so I must say it was good. Good organisation, compared to some than I have been to. The Hill was not so good 2nd time around, however still managed an ok time. Was looking forward to a medal to add to my collection and got a novelty gift instead. It's good to be different, but perhaps you could have the choice?
In short: Friendly, good scenery. One loo, Come early to get a good seat. In full: Excellent Venue, very friendly marshals. Up hill start but of course a downhill finish, enjoyed that)and letting us run the other hill twice was sooo kind. 1 WC for all the men was very poor. CAC seem to specialise in carp mementos; a diary last year, a bum bag only big enough for 3 Jaffa cakes this, what next, a CAC cork? Date of review: September 27, 2006
In short: Great course, great scenery. awful memento!! In full: I agree with some of the previous comments, fantastic course but a let down at the end, what a waste of money the bum bag was, either a medal or give the money to charity. I ran the Westonbirt 10k earlier in the year, we received a medal at the finish (plus water and a biscuit!) also had the inflatable Start/Finish line and a 15, 10, 5 minute count down to the start of the race. I think a few finishing touches and the Ciren 10k would be up there with the best.
In short: Bum-bag? Where was my medal? Fun race, great scenery and supportive marshalls In full: Uphill start with lots of dog mess to avoid, nice double loop with hill and water twice although entrance details hadn't mentioned water on-route so i carried my own. As a novice 10km runner I was relly disappointed by the lack of medal and relieved my husband was at the finish with water as they ran out! Fun race, great weather, would definitely do again.

In short: Finishers awards!!!?!! In full: Would ciren A.C. please save the money they spend on these totally rubbish awards and give it to the great charity this race was supporting.The race is fantastic ruined only by the piles of dog crap left by the other mindless users of the park.Fairplay to the cheery marshalls and the bloke running one hell of a pace with a child in a pushchair,now thats inspirational!!!!!!!!

In short: great race, full, long walk to start with a small kissing gate to go through caused a queue, lack of toliets all in all would do it again for its secenery polo club and all. Date of review: September 24, 2006
In short: Brilliant marshalls, super scenery! In full: Fab race and a great come back after being laid up with 2 broken ribs! Superb scenery, a hill done twice cos 2 laps, but doable. Most of all really brilliant marshalls who said we looked good!!!!! Great race guys, definitely be back Date of review: September 24, 2006
