In short: Hot &Hilly as usual - Great organisation & great kids events In full: Brilliant day out.....hard course as normal but still a grat race. Great races for the kids as well! my 4 yr old really enjoyed his 300m race & getting his medal & goddy bag to boot. 1st time time in a race for me with a fire engine tearing past at the 2k ish mark!!!!. Good idea to put a water station in at the foot of the last hill..... Big thanks to all the marshalls, brilliant work by all you guy's & girls. Date of review: June 8, 2008

In short: Fantastically organised race! In full: As usual, I thought this race was fantastic, with a great atmosphere. My kids loved the races too, with a nice medal and goody bag at the end, thanks for putting in the effort with the kids races.
In short: Thank you Aldridge Running Club In full: As usual, excellent organisation and marshalling make this race a classic. The heat today got to me, but the course is a challenge whatever the weather. That final hill is not for the faint-hearted!! Date of review: June 8, 2008
In short: Thank-you Aldridge that was bloody brilliant In full: Runners World take note please, you have to list this race in the top 5 when you next do a top 30 or 50, 10K road races in your magazine. The organzation was Superb ran like clockwork. Every Marshall you met on the course were full of nothing but praise, and as for the locals around the course, you were great. There were people shouting and screaming you home in the last 250 Meters that left you feeling like Dan Robinson rather than a sunday morning slogger, everyone in the last 250 meters you were brilliant, it left me with a lump in my throat as i walked through the finish. When can i sign up for next year. Date of review: June 8, 2008
