In short: Really super; I thoroughly enjoyed the event even though I did not get a pb. I feel sure that without the congested start I would have got one. Got lost on the way there - my poor navigation rather than poor directions. Many thanks to all concerned. Date of review: November 28, 2006
In short: Another very well organised Eynsham RR 10K In full: The marshalls are some of the best you will meet, very friendly and encouraging. Flat course, little dull outside the pretty village. Tea and cakes at the end, what more could you want. Thanks to all at Eynsham Road Runners. Date of review: November 27, 2006
In short: This my second year and finished this year's race with a PB. The only slight problem is having to use the grass verge especially with all the rain we have had lately but apart from that it was a good day. Date of review: November 27, 2006
In short: Sun shining as I complete my first 10K In full: This was my first 10K event and glad that there were a mixture of abilities. Organisation was very good - but would have preferred to have the car parks nearer the HQ. Encouraging marshalls all the way round and a good flat course for beginners.

In short: It could have been a contender.... In full: Everything about this race is excellent apart from the route. Or, to be more specific the fact that for a good 50% of the course (run over 2 laps) you are confined to running on a narrow pavement, so passing is a night mare. there was the option to step into the road, however it will have to be a braver man than I to step into the mid morning weekend traffic of the A40!! All in all an enjoyable day, but definately not for a PB Chaser. Date of review: November 27, 2006
In short: A well-organised race. In full: Overall a very well-organised race with a flat, albeit slightly dull, course. It was disappointing to find they had run out of ladies t-shirts, and surprising given that the organisers know how many women have entered before the day. However, this is a small niggle in an otherwise good race. Date of review: November 27, 2006
In short: Second time round In full: This is the second year I have run this race and it was as good as I rememebered. A good, fast, honest course and consequently it is the second year I have ended my racing calander with a new P.B.
What would make the course even faster and better would be avoiding the one or two areas of the course where you have to try and race and pass people on the narrow grass verges.
Well done to all involved in the organisation next year the hat-trick. Date of review: November 26, 2006
In short: Another nice day at Eynsham, all over too quickly... In full: Definitely my 10K PB course. Today beat my previous which had stood for 14 years. I could relax for the rest of the year a happy runner (but I won't). Thanks Eynsham RR for a well organised race. Date of review: November 26, 2006
