In short: Great race with a P.B. In full: Great race, good weather (although a little windy). The course was wide and therefore no overtaking problems for the faster runners. A good number of water stations, one with a sports drink on offer. Only problem with this is the wasteage. Excellent parking. Overall a very well organised race and will definitely be back next year!

In short: Haven't done it for two years and course is more challenging. In full: Marshalls worked really hard to support runners and deal with aggressive motorists. Plenty of water and good signing. Lots of crowd support and lovely weather. Date of review: March 2, 2008
In short: Wasn't bad - but it certainly wasn't flat this year. In full: Not done it in previous years, but from the description of 'flat' I paced myself for a flat run. What a mistake. Was still pleased with my 1.56 finish - but boy was that undulating and tough. Thanks to the sweet guy at the end who helped me through my hopeless 'sprint' finish. Date of review: March 2, 2008
In short: Fabulous organisation. Drinks stations were fantastic. Marshalls were lovely and very encouraging. Will definitely be making the trip to Milton Keynes for this one next year. Date of review: March 2, 2008
In short: Pretty good, nothing special In full: Race pretty well organised. As there are loads of twists and turns the race required a huge number of marshalls and in the main there were enough. There was one un-marsahlled road crossing at around 10 miles(ish) however that was blind for the runners. Race pretty quick although there are several mild climbs. No goody bag, just a medal and thats literally it, although the price of entry at £14 is not as bad as some events. Liked the 5km splits with the championchip timing.
Overall found the race ok, nothing special - this is not so much anything to do with the organisers. Just loads of tarmac paths twisting around with not a great deal of scenery. As long as you are ok with this then the race is pretty inoffensive. Date of review: March 2, 2008
