In short: Flat(ish) course, friendly marshalls, small field In full: Children ran the Fun Run beforehand, and then there was a long wait before the 10k started - the only organisational snag of the morning, in my opinion. Small field, lots of club runners who all seemed to know each other at the start, but all friendly enough (especially at the back where I was).
Unexpected hill at 5k, but a fast course and I got a new PB so pleased with that.
Thanks for a good way to spend a Sunday morning! Date of review: November 4, 2010
In short: Virtually Flat 10k with a huge PB Potential In full: After reviewing the feedback from previous years I was quite sceptical about this 10k but have to say I was pleasantly surprised with it! Virtually no hills with the exception of a small one at the 5k mark which lasts about 30 seconds. The atmosphere was minimal but this was all on country lanes. Most of the runners seemed to be part of a running club which made me feel like I was at the back of the crowd but nonetheless had my best 10k time since May finishing in 50 mins 12secs. I will definitely be there next time round and, with some extra training before hand, will try to get my PB. Fun Run before was great as my little 3 year old daughter did her first run there....proud father moment! Dont know how I feel about her getting the same medal as me though.

In short: Nice fast course...well organised In full: A nice race, lovely people...main complaint, the only prize categories were overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd, which were hogged by the guys...what are the women supposed to do?! Date of review: March 30, 2010
In full: Beautiful day for it. Felt cheated when I got to the 5km point to find a hill laying in wait - had been assured on entering that the course was flat. Very good run though, tougher than others I have done but definitely still beginner-friendly. Date of review: March 29, 2010
In short: Nice day but small turn out... In full: Very quiet event with little in the way of frills. That said, the organisation was smooth and the forecasted rain was actually sunshine :) Date of review: March 29, 2010
