In short: I think this is one of the all time greats! In full: This is a brilliant race, lovely scenery, plenty of encouraging marshalls and great organisation. I don't know why it doesn't attract more runners but I hope the organisers keep putting it on. Date of review: September 16, 2011
In short: Superb organisation, excellent marshalling, scenic run, lovely cakes In full: First time at this race and i will recommend it. Very low key with only 48 finishers, which i understand could be related to change of course location from the Horse-racing venue. This is a real shame, as some of the entry money goes towards charity.
I've been racing for years in small and huge events and the Dry Hill 10 was by far one of the best organised and marshalled events that i've done. There was no hesitation in checking route directions or any confusion. Lots of friendly Marshalls made sure of that. A nice gift and prizes at the end together with a superb selection of home made cakes made the journey worth while. A role model for other event organisers to follow.
The course itself is 2 thirds on quiet country roads and the rest off-road on dry tracks through woods with a few ups and downs, but nothing too tough. It would be great for this event to continue and hopefully grow as it's a good event all round and would appeal to all abilities.
Many thanks to all the organisers, helpers and Marshalls. Much appreciated, as were the lovely cakes afterwards! Date of review: September 8, 2011
