In short: That hill is a killer - but the beer made up for it at the end ! In full: Not many people would spend there birthday running, but I did! Enjoyed the run apart from that hill which seems to get longer every year ! Good organisation although the queue for the beer and hotdog at the end was somewhat large, but very rewarding.
Will definately be back to do this next year as it is nice to have a midweek run to participate in for a change.
Well done and many thanks to the organisers and marshalls who made this evening possible and enjoyable. Looking forward to seeing what next years T-Shirt slogan will be! Date of review: August 18, 2005
In short: 7/10 for organisation In full: Brilliant route, good orginaisation....however! A good mate of mine tore his achilles tendon on the "big" hill between 5 and 6 k mark (should have warmed up!) and despite my informing, the water station and the next marshalling point, once i finished i found that the message had not been relayed and no one, including the medics knew where he was. The race organiser drove round to pick him up and he was taken to cheltenham general. Maybe next year the marshalls need some form of communication. Brilliant atmosphere though and at last i managed to get past and beat my mate!!!!! Date of review: August 6, 2005
In short: great value, great scenery, great race In full: Strangely enjoyed the very undulating course. Perhaps the fantastic Cotswold scenery had something to do with it. Burger/Hotdog and Beer at the end is a great touch. Date of review: August 4, 2005
In short: A great way to spend a summers evening! In full: A superbly well organised event albeit a challenging course with a long climb between 4&6k. Friendly atmosphere. Burger and beer at the finish is extremely welcome(and well worth queueing for!). Hope to be back next year. Date of review: August 4, 2005
In short: Well organised race with the added bonus of beer and food at the finish In full: A bargain of a race with beer, burger and a t-shirt. Mind you you did have to earn it. Certainly a challenging course but gret views in the country - always a bonus for a city boy like me. Well worth doing... Date of review: August 4, 2005
