In short: 2009 reviews don't do the hills justice - my legs are in bits!! In full: Great administration, thanks to all the volunteers, it's normally a thankless task but you did great. Well done the cadets.
Great scenery, great hills. The running I do locally in Avon and Somerset includes some great hills so good training for this type of race. I will come back next year and aim for a faster time. Roll on Forest of Dean Half. Date of review: February 9, 2010
In short: Nothing like the finish heading down to Longleat house. After all those hills it is a wlelcome relief In full: Had a fab time as usual. Benji loved it too. He was a great help up the hills and the support he gets on the way round is wonderful. He helped me to knock a minute and a half off my previous best! Date of review: February 9, 2010
In full: The sense of achievement at the end made it all worth while! The hills were far tougher than any that I encounter in my normal training runs and so really took it out of me, but an enjoyable Sunday morning nonetheless. No chance of a PB but there was a great atmosphere at the start and plenty of words of encouragment on the way round, so well worth another go next year. Excellent medal too!

In short: Great place to run but quite tough In full: Lovely scenery, well organised, easy parking, great Lion medal, and generous goodies. Not enough toilets and definitely not PB material. Date of review: February 8, 2010
In short: Challenging but not too challenging! Prep needed. In full: Always a great venue (done it c4 times) Good mix of average and upwards ability runners. Baptism of fire for any 10k virgins (!). Don't bank on a pb. ;-) Date of review: February 8, 2010
In short: Good variation and solid under foot! In full: The hills were a challenge, the down hill to the finish is great. Would have liked to have seen KM markers to help only 2m and 4m markers. No route included in mail pack. Everything else was great and the location is wonderful. Nice medal and well organised. Definitely one for the 2011 calendar Date of review: February 8, 2010
