In short: Brilliant Day From Start To Finish. In full: Fantastic.. Well organised, friendly, great day right from arriving at the Escrick grounds. Lovely loop course through the grounds / woods. Great BBQ, tea, coffee etc.. at brilliant prices.. Well worth the day from Cleethorpes.. Just ashame about having to go shopping in York after the event.. :-( (bit of give and take I guess..!).. Great kids event also. Lad throughly enjoyed the fun run. Many thanks to all that supported the race and gave up free time to assist/help out.. Will be back next year..!!

In short: Great race, lovely route & well organised In full: This was only the 2nd year this race has been done, however apart from the queue for numbers, perhaps next year this could be broken down into alpabetical sub groups to speed up the process, the organisation was spot on. The only gripe - we didnt hear the countdown to the start, so it was a bit of a surprise when everyone just started running! Lovely setting in a typically English village with a duck pond on the village green, bbq & other refreshment stalls, cricket in the next field. Plenty of parking too and a short walk to the start/finish on the village green. Date of review: August 25, 2011
In short: Good race - but keep it quiet!! In full: Quality race this with a very friendly atmosphere. Keep the goodie bag minimal and keep the price down - good work.
Nice genuinely warm welcome at the finish - some trickier bits in the woods and hot bridal paths albeit all flat!
Maybe two improvements? The loud hailer was less than loud - we couldn't hear the count down! The second is showers. Would have been great to support the local pub if the showers had been opened for us.
But we'll be back - thank you and well done
Look forward to the results! Date of review: August 21, 2011
In short: Very nice setting, very warm morning In full: Overall the race is quite good, but a few hiccups with race number collection and toilet queues delayed the start 10 mins. Course is quite flat on farm tracks and the like. Thought the goody bag was a bit lacking, but hey ho. The actual setting for the race is extremely nice and a game of cricket to watch at the end.
