In short: Very well organised and fun quick race In full: Everything is set up to make this race simple and enjoyable. Plenty of friendly marshalls to help with the parking, water stations and directions. The course itself is very forgiving and I've posted a PB the last 2 years I've taken part.
In short: Super Organised and a Fast friendly Race In full: As has been said this is a great 10K organised by the same people who week in week out organised the Black Park parkrun.... so runs like clockwork! Cheap to enter and great handouts at the end. One to do every year!! Date of review: September 30, 2012
In short: Feels just like a longer Parkrun! In full: This is just a brilliant race, I can't rate it too highly. I was worried the small field would mean lots and lots of fats runners, but, no, it felt just like a Parkrun. No tension, a real relaxed feel about it. If you are a first timer, its a great race to start for a 10k.
Brilliant organisation, loads of marshalls, overall downhill course, mars bars, Mars Bar drink, free parking for runners and a £5 Sweatshop voucher...
Run under trees, it would be good in the sun too.
Just a brilliant race. Thank you Marshalls. Date of review: September 30, 2012
In short: Brilliant race, fast course In full: This race cost 10 quid and you get a £5 SweatShop voucher at the end, plus a few things to eat and drink and a medal. The course is great - really quick and seemed to have more downhill than up. Everything was great and I'd definitely do it again. Just a great, fast race done really well. Great location in Black Country Park, too. Date of review: October 11, 2011
In short: Great 10K for a sunday dash. In full: A pleasant 10K, allowing for an early morning run without impacting the rest of the day. Great goody bag afterwards for £10 entry. Only downside is the last 1/2KM through the woods. Date of review: October 3, 2011

Will be back again next year. Date of review: October 3, 2011
In short: Fantastic organisation In full: Great organisation from the parkrun team. The trees along the route provided some welcome shade. The long slow incline from 4.5k to 5k proved a killer for me. Will practice my hills and aim to be back next year. Date of review: October 2, 2011
In short: Very well organised, great race. Fast course despite the incline at 5k, got a PB by over 1 min. No chip timing, but not essential unless numbers increase significantly. Date of review: October 2, 2011
