In short: Quick and friendly 5 miler In full: Well organised local event, friendly and welcoming to all. Fast flat course would be good for PB. Marshalls and commentator cheer you on, can be tricky finding a parking place. Date of review: June 15, 2008
In short: A flat course that cuts through town and with last mile in park. Weather was kind and organisation faultless. In full: Like the fact your name is called out at the finish and the finish is on grass; takes me back to running on school playing fields. Plenty of goodies at end courtesy of sponsor DHL including a very bright T shirt. Set sub 30 min PB and came 29th/352. Would run again. Date of review: June 14, 2007

In short: Just a great event In full: I entered this on the day, but the whole organisation was great. Entry on the day was spot on, start area was on a field with loads of space. The marshalling all round the course was brilliant with pleanty of cheers from them all. The finiah back at the sports playing fields with a nice goodie bag. Nothing excessive, but a little more than the T shirt. Deffo beginner friendly.
Only down side was no clear indication that the start was made....no gun or siren! Small comment on a excellent event. Date of review: June 12, 2007
In short: I do this most years, its always well organised & well marshalled. I imagine its great for PBs if you're a quick runner, nice & flat and the finish in the park is really nice. Date of review: June 11, 2007
