In short: Ran a PB in my local race so can't grumble at that! In full: First 2/3 of race fairly quick - ensure you have some juice left in the tank for the latter part! A fairly tough 10K course overall and weather was perfect today for running. Date of review: November 15, 2009
In short: Don't underestimate the uphill finish....anyone know of any downhill 10KM finishes ? In full: Knocked over a minute off my personal best, but only previously run 3 before, Sheffield twice and Clumber Park.
Ran the first 3 miles in 22 minutes and finished in just of 48 minutes....th hills didn't help but fitness levels could have been better. Date of review: November 15, 2009

In short: Enjoyed the course though the finish on the boggy school field wans't ideal. In full: Enjoyed the rest of the course though - undulating with nice scenery once you've past the coking plant! Traffic in places but no problem - beat my pb by over a minute so well chuffed! Date of review: November 18, 2008
In short: Hills to Challenge In full: Enjoyed this race and was glad i made the trip, Yes the hills are tough, the one at 5 miles went on and on and....... But in the end i managed a new PB and my first time under 40mins, so the route was fair, we had plenty of downhill as well. The organisation seemed to help the race run well and all in all i would recommend and run again. Date of review: November 18, 2008
In short: Excellent 10km In full: After 3 years away from the running scene in Barnsley, returned to my old training ground of Royston. An excellent course, the hills are great. Dont change to a borin flat course, plenty of them about. Well orgainised and well done to Binney for keepin everyone in check at the start. Will be back next year. Date of review: November 18, 2008
