In short: Well organised & enjoyable In full: This was my second 10K & really enjoyable - but with the hills tough to get a PB! Oranisation was very good and the Marshalls were excellent. Will do again next year & attempt to crack the hour! Date of review: September 29, 2011
In short: Once again a great event In full: Second year I've done this one and I'll make every effort to be back again next year. Great organisation, excellent marshalling, good and challenging course through lovely countryside, top friendly atmosphere and a really good quality T-shirt to commemorate the event. Hats off to the organisers, well done! Date of review: September 21, 2011
In short: Great first 10K In full: This was my first 10K and I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun. The course was very scenic and well-marshalled. The marshals were friendly with an encouraging word or a clap as you went past.
The hills weren't too much for a first-timer like me, and I managed to hit my target time of sub 50. So I was very pleased.
I'm glad the other reviewers mentioned the missing km markers. I didn't see 6-8 either!
The fun run for the kids was great too: friendly costumed characters led the kids off to the start of their one-mile race. My son took part and really enjoyed it.
And after all that you can have a fun day out in Conkers with the family. Can't be bad! Date of review: September 20, 2011
In short: Very good organisation, everyone very friendly & lovely course In full: Excellent. Recommend this run to everyone, mostly off road but on well worn paths, marshalls everywhere & all very encouraging. Thanks to everyone involved, one for my diary next year.

In short: Excellent course/setting & facilities In full: Very pleasant setting to hold a running event. 99% away from road on hard trails (road shoes fine). Not a tough course, so doable for all. Good facilities & start/finish close to each other & near to the ample parking area in CONKERS. Fast downhill to finish was most welcome! Lovely coloured very wearable t-shirt. Chap doing the commentary was very good...almost everyone got a mention & you could hear every word! Only gripe was that km markers 6-8 appear to have been stolen...rather disconcerting to those of us not familiar with the area as not sure how far I'd done or got left to go,'til I saw 9k marker. Otherwise plenty of marshalls in the right places. Would do again. Date of review: September 18, 2011
In short: Lovely course, well organised and very friendly In full: Great race, lovely scenic route, slightly undulating, one short steeper hill at about 81/2 km. Very well organised with great facilities for runners and spectators, very friendly atmosphere. Didn't see km markers between 4 & 9pm but might have missed them. Definitely recommend for next year Date of review: September 18, 2011
In short: Great race well organised In full: Great atmosphere, encouraging marshals, few small hills, with testing hill at about 9k, seperates the men from the boys, well recommend for any level. Date of review: September 18, 2011
