In short: Hot and Hilly In full: Too hot - a start time of 9:30am would have been preferable. Not really a PB course thanks to a very sharp uphill climb at around 8k but the Berkshire countryside made for pleasant viewing. Date of review: July 17, 2006
In short: A really enjoyable 10k on quiet country lanes. In full: I brought a friend along for this, for his first race; never been in Tadley before. The course was really enjoyable, on quiet country lanes. The marshals were encouraging, the other runners friendly, and the finishing area just perfect with speed humps to slow the sprinters :-) . A good quality tee shirt too! For those chasing a trophy they had lovely crystal engraved bowls and cups. I have been to lots of 10ks and came 127 miles for this one. I wasn't disappointed. Thank you Tadley Runners!! Date of review: July 16, 2006
In short: Too hot! In full: This is definitely a PB course with lovely scenery and very few cars. Heat was a big downer - felt ill for the rest of the afternoon when I'd finished. Nice amount of drinks stations but would have been better to have water in bottles. Always a warm welcome at Tadley Runners. Date of review: July 16, 2006
In short: Great Race in the sun In full: Great Race, a bit to hot for a PB. Most of the 10K's this year have been very hot but all good training. Good Marshals especialy the one at the top of "the hill". After I said how hard it was he said the next one was bigger...very funny. ( He did tell me he was joking). Thanks to Tadley for a good race.

In short: Well organised friendly event In full: Exceptionly well run, to the extent 2 extra water stops were added to cope with heat. The atmosphere was great and made me feel happy to be a runner. Quite a fast course I would imagine when it's not so hot. Date of review: July 18, 2005
In short: Friendly small race, nice country lanes, only one hill! In full: Enjoyed this friendly race yesterday along pretty country lanes. Grateful for the 2nd unexpected water stop about 3/4 of the way round as the weather was so hot. Good marshalling and nice to get a t-shirt at the end.
