In short: Thanks Hermitage Harriers. In full: I really enjoyed this race. The organisation was very good, both at the start and at the end of the race. Will definitely look to do this one again if it is run next year. Date of review: September 11, 2007
In short: Well done Hermitage In full: Decided on Saturday night to run this one instead of another in Nottingham knowing it would be challenging. Wasn't disappointed at how hard the course was as I live near in Loughborough.
Well marshalled, well supported and vfm was excellent which puts larger well established races to shame. Will be looking to run this next year for sure and can see this getting a popular local event next year Date of review: September 10, 2007
In short: Well organised, hilly race. In full: Very well organised race, Marshalls did excellent job, very friendly - thanks to everyone involved.
Very hilly first 4 miles (up mainly) but last couple were pretty much all downhill. T-shirt very nice grey and liked the inflatable finish line - great to actually be able to see a finish line from a few hundred yards out.
Please don't let me have #1 next year! Date of review: September 10, 2007
In short: Well done Hermitage Harriers - a great event In full: Good, challenging course - hillier than I expected. Really well organised, excellent t-shirt & goody bag containing milkshake and chocolate (what more could you want). Congratulations on a great event - see you next year.

In short: A tough course with brilliant organisation and marshalling. In full: Proud to be part of the Hermitage club. Entertainment and T-shirts provided for cheap as chips entry price and a lovely cheeseburger afterwards. Course sorts the wheat from the chaff and will be tough to PB but come to experience the first 5km- a pure climb. Myself, I love hills and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done to organisers Andy, Bob, Paul, John, Caroline and the team. Who'd have thought this was the clubs first organised race. Only note for next year try to move finish to the field near the start- Greater viewing area.
In short: A great hilly run! In full: This was a great race, made all the better by the good organisation - obviously a lot of effort has gone into it! Will definitely be doing this again next year - well done guys! Date of review: September 9, 2007
