In short: A fun race In full: Excellent race, my only small complaint is the location of the finish line with a sharp right hand turn 20 yards from the finish. It's a bit dangerous, especially if you are charging down the hill at full tilt.
Organisation and atmosphere was top notch, I will be back. Date of review: October 31, 2007
In short: Nice course In full: I had one of those races here where all the hills seemed to be downhill! A new PB for me and a time I will find tough to beat next year.
My only grumble was the car parking situation, my car got very stuck in the field that was being used for the car park, next year if the grass is cut in that field it might be easier to avoid driving straight into the divets. Date of review: November 20, 2006
In short: Well worth turning up - ran PB so very pleased In full: Will definately run this again. Great scenery friendly marshalls. Tea and cakes in school hall nice touch. Ran a PB knocking 3 minutes off my previous time - mind you only the fourth 10 miler I've run, but still really pleased. Only grumble (which seems happens at most races) is they ran out of medium size t-shirts and only had large and extra large ones left for the back end runners. Bit annoying, why don't the organisers realise that medium is the most popular size and get more of these in? Apart from the t-shirt problem everything else was great - well done Stebbing 10.

In short: very well organised with great marshalls In full: Really well organised race and the marshalls were very encouraging and helpful all along the route. Good conditions for a PB and the T-shirt was very good value. Really enjoyed the race. Date of review: November 13, 2006
In short: Very enjoyable well organised race. In full: Not a partucularly good run from a personal point of view but a good race on a mostly quiet rural course. I will be back to try and do a bit better next year. Plenty of encouragement from the marshalls - thanks! Date of review: November 13, 2006
In short: Great course, great weather and very enthusiastic marshalls! In full: This was my first 10 Mile race and I was very impressed. There were very few hills, certainly nothing to worry about and 3 well spaced water stations. All the marshalls were smiling and cheering you on and there was a very friendly atmosphere amongst the runners (helped by a relativly small field I think). This was all topped off with a nice long sleeved top for finishers and a stall selling some really nice cake! Well organised start and finish as well. Date of review: November 12, 2006
