In short: Potentially fast end of year run In full: No problems finding it if you look at the website. Largely flat course apart from one slight climb. Finishes in industrial estate with quite a walk back to church hall but no complaints - quite glad I went. No medals/mementoes but got home in time for footie results [duh].

In short: Will definitely be back next year In full: Great race - I'd read a few reviews that said the organisation was dodgy - but I was nothing but impressed through registration, the briefing, the signing to the start (about 1km walk away), the marshalling, the signing around the race, the course... Will definitely return next year! Date of review: December 18, 2011
In short: Great run, but planning left a bit to be desired In full: Couldn't fault the race itself, nice route, great marshalling and a good atmosphere. Started promptly, which was good as it was freezing! However, the postcode for the race HQ must have been wrong and even after emailing prior to the race to ask, as it seemed nearly two miles away on google, the organisers still didn't twig. The end result was 30 minutes wandering around a trading estate. If a very friendly fellow runner with a car who was also looking for the HQ hadn't picked me up and driven us to the start to ask where the HQ was I would have missed it. Also got the impression race numbers were supposed to be posted out but had to collect them. The web link from runnersworld also had a typo and had to be corrected, which may explain a limited turnout.
A nice friendly run and the organisers clearly tried, but a bit more attention to planning required. Thanks anyway, I enjoyed it and if next years planning is a bit more accurate I'll be back :-) Date of review: January 31, 2011
In short: Great 5 mile race In full: Enjoyed this race a lot. Nice country roads with very little traffic. Excellent mile markers. Was difficult to find Head Quarters with post code given and start was about 6 minutes away from this and therefore was almost late. Nevertheless a really good race, very friendly crowd.

In short: Good enough event on a harsh day In full: Main problem was that it wasn't well signposted coming from the south, I drove straight past the HQ and nearly missed the race a mile away where the GPS took me and several others. Otherwise, small and friendly, quite flat course, lots of prizes and drinks in the chuirch after wards. Date of review: January 30, 2011
