In short: A nice run through "posh" Bucks In full: A really nice race this one. Although in mid-summer the shade from the trees is nice. A greta run in at the end. A very nice race/event. Date of review: August 25, 2010
In short: Great organisation and plenty of shade from the sun In full: Its hard to find many longer races in the summer months so BB was a great launch into the autumn racing season. Very well marshalled and organised. Would definitely need an extra water stop if the weather had been hotter though. As a first timer, I will definitely return next year.

In short: A well run, scenic half marathon. In full: This half is definitley challenging but made an improvement on last years time. Better pacing a few degrees cooler certainly helped. Thanks to the organisers, the helpers and the school.
In short: Never mind the parking, I needed a bus to get around!.. ;-) In full: Pheew, that was tough for me. I was nursing a ham-string injury, but managed to pull my calf muscle with 200 metres to go. Ouch!.. Not good, but a cracking race so well done to Burnham Joggers for hosting the event. See you next year for this testing 2 lap challenge and thanks for those mini mars bars. Date of review: August 24, 2010
In short: Local Beeches Girl - how could I not?? In full: 3rd time for me, and getting faster every year (only by about a minute a time, but at my advanced age ...) Everything as well organised as ever, the hills still catch me out on the 2nd lap and God knows I ought to be used to them by now, but I'll still be back for more. In any case, leaving home at 9.30 for a 9.50 line-up is always attractive! Date of review: August 24, 2010
In short: well organised pretty race but hilly In full: my second half and did far worse today the hills were much bigger on the second lap and i now ache all over last 1/2 of the year for me Date of review: August 23, 2010
In short: tougher than I expected In full: an undulating course on the 1st lap that suddenly becomes hilly on the 2nd lap!! Scenery is nice tree lined roads however, the view does get a bit monotonous after 13 miles of the same. Really nice to run a whole race without seeing a single car Date of review: August 23, 2010
