In short: Excellent PB Potential In full: I would not describe this course as hilly. The first half was undulating but the second half was quick. I'm sure I'm not alone in finding undulating courses with fast sections coming later in the race more PB orientated. What pleased me about this race was their was a fair bit of shade and plenty of water stations - if I remember rightly the first was at 2.5K the remaining two evenly spaced. Other race organisers should take note, that it is important on warm summer days to have a water station early in the race (even in 10k races)before dehydration has chance to take hold.
Much prefer T shirt that the usual medal.
An excellent event well done the organisers. Date of review: June 17, 2008
In short: Hilly. Generous 3 water stations. Excellent atmosphere! In full: A toughish 10k due to the hills. Extrememly well organised. Lovely atmosphere. No pushing and shoving at all! Plenty of room to overtake. A good spacious feel. Date of review: June 16, 2008
In short: Another well organised race In full: Second time for me on this and loved it. I shaved 5 mins off last years time, and over 3 mins off my 10k PB, so chuffed. Well organised as usual, good to see Waitrose mucking in with the water and banana's. Village green atmosphere. See you next year. Oh and spoke to a rather charming girl called Leisa from Maidenhead Runners in the car park, maybe I'll join the running club. :) Date of review: June 16, 2008
In short: Really great day and interesting route In full: Well organised and the course wasn't too hilly at all. Plenty of wide stretches although got a little narrow at times and was difficult to pass in places. Great overall. Date of review: June 16, 2008
In short: One of the best races in the Thames valley area. In full: Second year at this and again, smooth organisation, superb marshalling and a fabulous village green atmosphere make this one of the best races around. Challenging course but as it was my PB course until recently and I was 15 secs off a PB this time its not unbeatable. Incidentally, good value T much better than another medal that would end up at the recycling tip. See you next year Wargrave. Date of review: June 16, 2008
