In short: Well organised off-road race in the New Forest In full: Well-marshalled, scenic course and lots of support from the commentator and spectators approaching the finish. It's a pretty flat course but I found the uphill bit after 8 miles hard work - thank goodness it was cloudy most of the way! Date of review: July 10, 2011
In short: Excellent, well organised race. In full: I was very impressed with the organisation throuout this race, the hose half way through was particularly welcome. The New Forest is always beautiful to run in. It was a late start and hot but, as I came from London the late start meant that I could get the first train that morning and didn't have to stay over the night before. Date of review: July 17, 2010
In short: One event not to be missed In full: It`s a great event with nice scenery, loads of cheerful marshals, fast enough at the sharp end of things, fun runs to keep you busy if you are watching, plenty of parking, space & time to stay on afterwards, nice horse brass but it does get hot thou.
Well done New Forest Runners. Date of review: July 16, 2010
In short: Excellent summer 10 miles In full: Second time for me and just as enjoyable and challenging as last year. Very well organised, easy parking, plenty loos etc. A strong field made this a fast race for the conditions. Date of review: July 15, 2010
In short: Fabulous scenery, marshalls, organisation, kids/fun runs, great for spectators. In full: Lovely race with all the necessaries - great marshalls and scenery, good water stations - hose pipe really needed, no major hills, great atmosphere at start and finish with entertainment for kids and lots of other races, food and although i don't qualify great prizes, nice Horse brass to all finishers was lovely change for the rest of us.

In short: Glorious race In full: First time for this one, I will be back. Excellent organisation, marshalls & course. Fair bit of shade. But, & it is a small 'but', how about an earlier start? Date of review: July 14, 2010
