In short: Best organised race I have run so far In full: Really good course, pb'd by more than 9 minutes, 3 and half year old pb too! I've done several much bigger races and this was by far the best organised especially at the start and finish. The support through the town and the villages was excellent. Loved the tubs of jelly babies on offer in the villages. Can't wait for next year!
Congratulations to the organisers, volunteers and the people of Fleet and surrounding villages. Date of review: March 22, 2011
In short: This was my first time in this race. Everything went smoothly from car parking to post-finish line refreshment. No stressful scrum at start, good friendly atmosphere, well marshalled and good support along the route. I would do it again. Date of review: March 22, 2011
In short: Fantastic atmosphere and well organised In full: Last year I was just watching but soon after got the running bug and this year was part of it. My second half after doing my first last summer and took 10mins off my time so was thrilled. Fantastic atmosphere through the town, really enjoyed going through twice. Loved the finish with the down hill just before entering the finish area. Rural part was a hard slog. Hope to be part of this for years to come. Date of review: March 22, 2011
In short: A challenging run in the 'shires In full: First time at Fleet but i know the area and had driven the course, great set up at the start, minor whinge is people could go where they wanted and there were way too many slower peopleup front. Course was challenging with lots of hills and undulations but nothing too knackering. Route was great with a couple of loops through the town and then out into the surrounding countryside which i love, finish was fab and just generally a really nice quick race. Good medal as well and the marshalls and supporters were fabulous. Seemed to have a lot of marshals on the way so thanks to them, always nice to see their smiling faces. Good for a challenging run but also good for novices as there was a nice mix of people. Lots of pbs this year (and for me), perfect running weather, just an ace way to spend a morning!

In short: First TIme Runner and enjoyed every minute. The crowds were great through the town and villages. In full: The only negative point would be that the traffic wasn't controlled through Church Crookham. Date of review: March 22, 2011
