In short: Fantastic - highly recommended!! In full: A well organised, friendly race for all abilities - brilliant attractions for younger children (old fashioned fair rides) and always well attended by a great mix of age/genders/abilities. Luckily it's on my door-step and I've now run it five years in a row and will continue to do so. Watch out the two hills near the beginning - they always get to me! Congratulations to the organisers - I doff my cap to you! Date of review: October 31, 2011
In short: Another enjoyable run around the Moor Park area. This was the fourth time I have taken part in this race and the steep climb through the golf course remains as challenging as ever. In full: An enjoyable race and as I spent many a happy afternoon watching my son play rugby, cricket and hockey at Merchant Taylors I always enjoy coming back to run around the school grounds. I always find the race challenging but very rewarding once the hill has been beaten for another year! Date of review: September 29, 2011
In short: Decent choice for first ever 10k In full: My first race since a half marathon 20+ years ago!
Has a long climb on the golf course, but otherwise quite nice, away from roads on the Moor Park estate. Good atmosphere and with stewards on corners, nice and friendly, two water stations. Shame the Metropolitan Line was closed for engineering works as wouldn't have needed to drive there (replacement bus awkward).
Good if you've got friends/family watching as there's a couple of circuits of the sports field at the start before you get on the road.
Will do again as fairly local to us. Date of review: September 26, 2011
