In short: Very enjoyable – few cheeky hills In full: This was my first at this event and my first of the year and I thoroughly enjoyed it. An excellent course, well marshalled and a good atmosphere even though there were only 140 entrants. A few cheeky hills especially at 6½ but that made the finish line all the more rewarding. A big thanks to Juliet and Sara who I had never met before but in our own little group we ran a great race which helped me achieve a brilliant PB. Thank you to Wrekin Runners for a well organised event. Hope to be back next year. Date of review: February 19, 2009
In short: Very enjoyable event - please don't move it! In full: I really like this race as an early season sharpener so a bit gutted to hear that it will be put back to autumn next year (on the basis of what was actually freak weather -worst in 30 years - bit of an over reaction perhaps). That aside, great race, great marshalls and the out and back makes for good supportive atmoshpere as you pass the others going the other way. Date of review: February 17, 2009
In short: Good day out, with a few surprises towards the end In full: I enjoyed this one more than the 10k - more space to run, the horses were a bit of a challenge like the couple of hills at the end. Will be back next year. Well done Wrekin Runners for an excellent event. Hope results are posted soon! Date of review: February 16, 2009
In short: Super soup In full: For a first timer found the race itself fantastic. Just a couple of minor inclines. Marshalls were fantastic giving lots of encouragement. Hope to this next year. Date of review: February 16, 2009
In short: Not as flat as expected In full: Well organised enjoyable race. If you are looking for a PB this may be tougher than you expect. Some tough inclines and the last one at 6 1/2 although only short was a killer....That said it was enjoyable... Date of review: February 16, 2009
In short: A good race, on an intresting course In full: First time I have done this race and it was very well organised. Nice start finish area with loop of trail track, and intresting race route. Some challengeing hills(well the same one twice!) but just adds to the challenge and good feeling when you get round.
Will be back in 2009, well done to the Organisers. Date of review: February 15, 2009
