In short: Undulating but manageable....great atmosphere! In full: A bit hilly in places, but nothing too aggressive......I much preferred this year's start on the school drive-way, didn't like it when we started on the thick, wet grass of the rugby field last year! Friendly efficient marshalls, good facilities and a nice crystal memento to finish....well done Tadley! Date of review: October 19, 2008
In short: Undulating, friendly and fun In full: Small race, not crowded at all. Undulating but no steep hills really. The hill at the end was long though. Well organised and marshalls were friendly. Nice memento. Date of review: October 19, 2008
In short: Some nice country roads, downhill uphill In full: Really good memento rather than the usual cheap medals, friendly and massage on hand at the end of the race ! Date of review: October 19, 2008
In short: Well organised pleasant run In full: Organisation went well but would imagine with a bigger field there could be problems. Very low key for a National Championship but at least it was relaxing and I achieved my best National placing with excellent competition. None of the stuffiness one sometimes gets at Championship events. Only gripe is that only main results available on the day and still not on website today. Date of review: October 16, 2007
In short: Great Race In full: Everything was just perfect even the weather was just right. Mildly challenging course, great memento and well marshalled and managed a new PB. Not to many runners but this is only going to get bigger. Thankyou. Date of review: October 16, 2007
In short: Another great 10m to add to diary In full: Mildly challenging route, well organised, good marshalling and a great memento. All in all a 10m to add to the diary. The only niggle was vehicles of competitors weaving through the field to get more photos of loved ones, lets keep quiet virtually traffic free country lanes just that shall we!

In short: Well orgainsed race with something for everyone. In full: Very enjoyabe run - roads were generally very quiet, good atomsphere. Has some PB potential but you will be doing well to get one (I was less than a minute out on mine). Only slight comment on the orgainsation was the uncertainty over the start.

In short: Far better than anticipated In full: After signing up to this I saw that last year's event only attracted 59 entrants so I wondered how much effort would have gone into this year's event on the back of that but it turned out to be expertly run and marshalled.
The course is mostly flat or gently undulating and it has definite PB potential, particularly given the temperatures for October races.
Highly recommended, I will be back next year. Date of review: October 14, 2007
