In short: Beautiful scenery, great organisation, very rewarding In full: A flat run but not boring due to a couple of bridges, gates and styles to add interest, but overall excellent terrain. There were more marshalls than I could count (thanks Jo for your bell - made me laugh) and a welcome water station half way. Briefing was very helpful and it seemed like all details were very well thought out. Everyone was very friendly. Despite the heat, I felt able to run a good race due to a reasonable amount of shade & slight breeze off the river - and in other years if it's not so hot, the route would give quite a lot of protection from more inclement weather. Will definitely do it again next year when I will pre-register, which will make it better value. Date of review: May 28, 2012
In short: Great scenery, great mix of terrain / stiles / bridges made it very interesting. In full: Could be made for a "muddy" event. With gates, stiles, off-road, it's not made for PBs but with the scenery, farmland, stiles etc, could be a great fun run. Date of review: May 28, 2012
In short: Great course, organisation was spot on, highly recommended In full: The organisation was excellent. My friend ran this as her first 10k and really enjoyed it. Excellent course through the out skirts of Marlow. Good medal and mars bar to all finishers too, all for a good price. I will Definitely do this again and recommend it to all.

In short: Very scenic, great atmosphere. Enthusiastic marshals! In full: For an inaugural event the organisation was superb. Great briefing at the start. The atmosphere was brilliant, everyone was really friendly and supportive. The route was very picturesque throughout and also well marked and easy to follow. I loved the radio desk at 9.75km, that was a nice touch. It is nice for Marlow to now have a 10K to go with the other races in the town. I would highly recommend this event to others.

In short: Lovely way to spend Sunday morning! In full: Congratulations to Sam and her Team - very well organised, excellent communications before race, very well marshalled - would have been absolutely impossible to get lost or take the wrong turn!
Lovely venue for the start/finish so great to be able to indulge in tea and cakes afterwards!
Thanks Sam and Marlow FM - hope it becomes a regular event - will be looking out for it next year! Date of review: May 27, 2012
In short: Fantastic race, very friendly with great atmosphere. In full: This was a tremendous success, particularly for an inaugural event. The route was lovely and the scenery took the pain out of the exceptional heat that we had on the day. A very well organised event and one that I hope will be there for many years to come.
