In short: Well organised local fun run In full: A scenic course through very pleasant countryside and woods. It could have been very muddy if conditions had not been bone dry as they were today. Very well marshalled, but it needed to be given the twisty course.
The 300 or so competitors appeared to be mainly local parents of the school, so not a fast field. I believe times were taken, but I am not clear whether they were published or not. Date of review: May 7, 2007
In short: They were no kidding about parking being difficult. A country / town run with undulations. I would not like it on hot or wet day. In full: I thought I was never going to find a place to park but the up slope 1k back to the start perhaps did me good? Priced at £1/K it was not wonderful value but it was well marshalled and they stopped the traffic for the first bit along the "main" road. The course was along byways - mind the trotting horses - footpaths parks and quiet roads. Philistine that I am even I enjoyed the scenery more so than I enjoyed some of the longer slopes up to 5/6k. I like flat cos I am fat(ish)! The large detached houses in this area make me think that the locals would regard the entry fee a bargain ( and it is for a cause) but I probably will not do it again at this price unless they at least get a clock and record the results on a web site. Nice start to the morning though Date of review: May 7, 2007
In short: Fast if it has not been raining as it can get muddy, but excellent race In full: Like this run, its just around the corner and nice to do instead of a training run. Well organised no frills but nice scenic route, thanks Date of review: May 7, 2007
In short: Fantastic marshalls and well-organised race In full: Glad to have beaten the rain, set a new PB and enjoyed the shouts and cheers from enthusiastic marshalls. Great value and great fun. Date of review: May 7, 2007
In short: My first 10k and was impressed.... In full: save at the end of the race when finishers blocked the pavement of those of us bringin up the rear.... the finish was a bit of a let down. No one handed me a medal I had to ask for one! Date of review: May 7, 2007
