In short: Very well supported, good mixed course. In full: This was my first time at Fleet, and I would definately do it again, but without the rain next time please. The course was varied, with good support in the town, and nice country lanes as well. Shame that Calthorpe Park was so muddy, but organisation was spot on. Date of review: March 18, 2013
In short: Great Race, well organised & marshalled with excellent support In full: The organisers did an excellent job especially with the heavy rain in the lead up to the race. As always, this event runs really well and is very enjoyable to take part in - despite cold & wet weather there were plenty of supporters lining the streets and the marshals were ethusiastic & cheerful too!

In short: Superb Fast Club Organized Race In full: This was a joy. The weather was bad but luckily we missed the worst of it. The course was not pancake flat but undulating, so you could certainly keep your pace up. Starting by doing a loop of the town was great as the supporters where out en mass. As we left the town and headed into the country side there was a lot of people cheering en route especially at mile 10 ish. Going back into the down the streets where lined with people more supporters.
The marshaling was excellent, the race just flowed through, lots of road closures. The final stretch into the muddy park could have been a nightmare but the marshals warned us of speed bumps and the final 100m was lined with sawdust and carpet to help us do a final sprint.
