In short: 2nd Year and I'll be back for a 3rd In full: This race is great, with the addition of chip timing it is even better, the light walk up the hill to the start is great, particularly as it is the route down at the end which can really help those tiring legs to pick up speed for a strong finish.

In short: Only my second 10k but really well organised In full: Fantastic course, mostly flat but with the much described hill at 7k which although hard wasn't a killer. Really lovely scenery. Was impressed with the organisation and friendliness. There's not much that could be done about the parking, most people would've researched the race and been prepared for the wait. Only thing I was disappointed in was the 'goodie' bag: a bottle of lucozade and some fruit flakes doesn't really constitutes 'goodies' to me! Would definitely do this race again though and got a PB so I can't complain! Date of review: February 9, 2010
In short: Great race, perfect for beginners........ In full: Good mix of runners, friendly atmosphere, very enjoyable and not too tough a course. definately recommended. Date of review: February 9, 2010
In short: Well organised and enjoyable route In full: I agree with all the other comments and whilst I worried that there wouldn't be enough loos for the ladies it didn't seem to be a problem. Great to have the use of the club house especially since I had two little ones pottering about while I ran. Food tent was also very welcome and good value for money. Organisation and marshals were excellent and despite complaints about the car park it was well managed considering the number of runners and the fact that it is a rural location. Really pleased with the route as it had plenty of twists and turns to keep your interest (yes killer hill at 7k - my legs are still aching today!) Many thanks A&D. Date of review: February 9, 2010
In short: well organised friendly 10k race In full: Great course, great organisation, loved the fact that there was ample parking onsite, and I even didn't find the ladies toilet queue too bad!! I would definitely do this race again. Thank you for a great morning!! Date of review: February 9, 2010
In short: good organisation and great views In full: Fantastic race! My 1st race hence very special. I was very apprehensive to begin with which was made worse by the grey cloudcover and biting cold.My wife kept reminding me that this was English winter. But all the people and marshalls were very friendly.The country folk along the way were very encouraging. I managed to finish the race and did not come last either! Not once did I walk....very satisfying experience.
Only one thing I found funnily out of place was that they managed to stick the menu on the actual toilet cubical doors not to mention the stink of the overused toilets( not the best selling point for your sandwiches eh?) Date of review: February 8, 2010
In short: Very, very well run by helpful marshalls, excellent facilities, great course. In full: Excellent facilities, nice to have normal toilets and even a bar! Very friendly and helpful people, well organised. Good course to set a good time but a nice challenage for a beginner. Friendly fellow runners, good atmosphere out on course and needed support from the marshalls! Date of review: February 8, 2010
In short: My first race and it won't be my lastl In full: This was my first try at a run as I am relatively new and getting on a bit! I was a bit nervous when I saw all the running club participants but everyone was very friendly and encouraging (especially marshals). Very well organised and no queues to collect chip. Overall, a great experience. Date of review: February 8, 2010
In short: Very good race, pleasant atmosphere and good mix of runners. In full: A pleasant run through the Kent countryside with both ups and downs (it's officially undulating). Probably not a PB route, but a very enjoyable run none the less.
Very well organised and easy to get in and out of. Date of review: February 8, 2010
