In short: Always a good event made even better this year by the glorious sunshine In full: Whilst this is a challenging event for most of us, it has always been well run when I've been at it and despite breezy and chilly at some places, it always seems like Summer when you turn at about the 5 and 13 mile corner. The three hills don't make it easy, but they are not too difficult and help make this event also be a great training course for the Spring marathons.
Some good friendly and helpful marshalls and water stations (sensibly spread). Well done Yaxley. Date of review: January 18, 2009
In short: Excellent race, brilliant organisation, great marshals, slightly undulating, very friendly,, great race will be back next year In full: Superb race, well organised and marshalled, undulating course which made it more interesting, would have been fast apart from the wind, great friendly atmosphere, particularly grateful to marshal who gave me a drink in the last few miles when I was struggling. Will be back next year to improve me time. Brilliant race, thank you!!! Date of review: January 23, 2008

In short: Great organisation In full: Excellent race, well organised and marshalled, parking a little bit of a pain but the taxi service back was nearly instant. I am coming back from injury so didn't run that well but an excellent test for London in the rolling East Anglian countryside, roll on the Stamford 30K! Date of review: January 21, 2008
