In short: The most scenic road race in the Midlands ! In full: A wonderful race around country lanes, through scenic villages and past timber framed cottages. Reasonably hilly, and the weather was warm again this year, but I guess my major reason for struggling was that this was my 15th race in 29 days. Excellent organisation - shame about the over officious timekeepers who apparently disqualified the runner-up because he jumped the start by half a second. On a 9 mile road race - come on ?

In short: really good event In full: really enjoyable race - i found the first 5 miles and the last mile quite challenging esp in the sun but this made for a good varied run. i think runners would have benefited from some additional marshals though as occassionally i found myself moving from the left to right hand side of the road because other runners ahead of me were, for no apparent reason!

In short: I can see clearly now the rain has gone! In full: Very enjoyable race. Interesting course - not too hilly (seemed to be more downhill bits than uphill bits!!), lots to look at on the way round and well supported with marshalls etc.
In short: A very good race In full: This race was very well organised, its just a shame there wasn`t enough goody bags for all runners, Thankyou to all marshalls for your support on route especialy those at the water stations, despite the recent wet weather this was a very hot day, well done to all those runners who wanted to get under 65 mins with me, I enjoyed your company as my running buddy is injured @ the moment, see you all next year.

In short: Very enjoyable. My first 9 mile run. Made very welcome. Only small gripes are I'd have been happier with water bottles rather than cups and somebody put a massive hill at 8.5 miles!! Date of review: June 17, 2007
