In short: A nice run in the countryside In full: Good support around the course, marshalls were great. Chip timing needs to be introduced though. Nice and challenging mildly, ran well, missed pb by 25 secs so a bit gutted. Date of review: May 20, 2013
In short: Good village race In full: Nothing to fault with this race. Well organised, plenty of encouraging marshals, good traffic management, excellent race facilities at the school, lovely medal, all in all a great day out for a bargainous price (a few cheeky inclines on the way round though!)

In short: First time on the 10 mile option In full: I've run the Hook 6 for the last two years and decided to give the 10 mile race a go this year. It was a more undulating course than I had anticipated, but that may have also had something to do with the fact that I'd gone out too fast and had had a bit of a tummy bug in the days leading up to the race so by 3 miles I was a bit spent. However, I was only around a minute outside my 10 mile PB.
The event is a great one to do for all abilities , very well organised and the marshals are very encouraging. The medal was the same as last year but had the year on the ribbon - my only suggestion would maybe to differentiate the medals for the distances, perhaps by having a different coloured ribbon. Other than that it's a great community event, there's good support from the locals and I'll be back next year. Date of review: May 19, 2013
