In short: A very friendly well organised traditional XC event In full: A really enjoyable, unpretentious, old fashioned cross country race. It has the lot - stream crossings, cultivated field edges, hard paths, mud, puddles and a few testing little hills. It also has friendly runners, supportive marshalls, vocal supporters, and at the end - Soup. A great day. I'll be back. Date of review: December 10, 2006

In short: Good run. Nice hot soup at the end. In full: As I was running in road shoes I had worried about sliding about in the mud, but it wasn't too muddy. The water in the stream was cold though! Well organised, although it wasn't obvious where they were serving the soup. Date of review: December 10, 2006
In short: Great fun. Hard work on the hill but worth it In full: Really enjoyed this race. It is the first xc I have done for many years and will not be the last. Definitely harder than any 10K road runs Date of review: December 10, 2006
In short: Fab In full: A fun and challenging course. Not so sure I want to see the pic of myself falling out of the other side of the brook but hey, it all added to the excellent atmosphere of the race. Thanks for the lovely mug! Date of review: December 10, 2006
In short: Tadley Runners put on an excellent race again, great fun although the muddy legs took some cleaning ! In full: Looks like word is getting round about what a good race this is, there seemed to be loads more entries than last year.
Definitely one for next year's diary although I may enter in advance in future as I'd be gutted to miss it if entries reach their limit.
In short: Friendly proper XC with a few cheeky bits. Hot soup at the end. In full: I did this last year and it's growing in popularity. Fun and well organised as I have come to expect from Tadley Runners. A great end to my 2006 racing season. Date of review: December 10, 2006
