In short: good organisation, nice course In full: Good start time, fast course my only complaint was getting caught up at the start getting out of the park, lost at least 20 seconds time getting out onto the main road once passing start line. great organisation, very generous good bag with medal, t-shirt and goodies. starting out by the road might be better to get a solid start? but very good race!

In short: Great race In full: Great race, lovely day, enthusiastic marshals, great crowd though residential area, great value for money, recycling race numbers was a nice touch which other races should consider, only improvement could be starting on the road, I started in the correct place in the park but had to walk until I was a few minutes up the main road Date of review: May 11, 2009
In short: Great race In full: Enthusiastic marshalls which really helped us to get round the course during what was a very hot day. It made up for the lack of support from the onlookers (please don't just stand there - cheer). Very well organised - well done. Date of review: May 11, 2009
In short: Great race, well organised, superb value for money! In full: The second time I have run this event (last was in 2005). Good crowd support, and a nice course. Amazing that you get a fantastic medal, a decent t-shirt and a full goody bag!!
In short: Great race In full: We had another good morning in Marlow. wot a lovely day for a race made all the more special as Jade won the junior girls category in 38:45 to set a new Pb. Once again Handycross joggers put on a very well organised race. With a fantastic goody bag. We don't want to sound ungrateful but we did think a trophy would have been a better prize for the junior winners, than a John Lewis voucher. WE stood by the Grant and Stone banners just before the finish line and was amazed how many runners we had to shout at to keep going as they fought they had just crossed the finish line. I think the organisers need to think about the way they can prevent this in the future. Maybe a 100 meter board would be a good idea. Apart from these two small points, we would all like to thank all the organisers and Marshall's for making this another great race. Date of review: May 10, 2009
In short: Brilliant. Friendly marshalls. chunky medal. Bulging goody bag. In full: Well done to Handy Cross Runners for another superb event. Coping with so many runners can be no easy task, but they managed superbly. The commentator was amusing, the marshalls were encouraging, the townspeople were out in force. A beautiful day, a lovely setting by the river, a fat shiny medal and a packed goody bag all made for an enjoyable and memorable day. Date of review: May 10, 2009
