In short: A Great Race to kick the New Year off with! In full: Pat and her team have got this race nailed to a 'T'. The last time I ran it was back in 2009 and since then the field has grown to an impressive 400 plus competitors. The race route is along quiet lanes with some up and downs, especially the last 2 miles being challenging. Chip timing along with a nice memento and goody bag (crisps drink, Mars Bar and fruit, made the race that bit extra special. I will be back..... Date of review: February 1, 2012
In short: lovely well organised low key event In full: A good old fashioned friendly low key event. Cheerfully marshalled and no problem finding the way. Nice back to basics goody bag with chocolate and crisps etc to finish. Perfect- the way a race should be. Date of review: February 1, 2012
In short: Nice event. Well organised. Lovely course. Very friendly atmosphere. Will be back. In full: What a great start to 2012. Was worried about the weather but it turned out perfect for running but felt sorry for the marshalls as they must have been freezing (hats off to them). Nice friendly atmosphere about the whole event. Relatively flat course with very little traffic to worry about. And to top it all I managed to get a PB. Shall be back next year.

In short: Decent undulating course, look out for the hill before the finish! In full: Good race this at a distance I've never tried before having run 10k's and HM's. Great way to start January off and spare a thought for those marshals stood out in the cold - would much rather be running in weather like today!
Decent mix of club and non-club members and plenty of differing abilities running on very quiet roads. A fair few hills caught me out a little today but they added to the enjoyment.
Will be back in 2013 that's for sure. Date of review: January 29, 2012
In short: Excellent race again In full: My second try at this. A pb last year, but it was not to be this time. Well organised race, lots of friendly marshallers around the course. A good start to the year's running, and I hope to be back next year. Date of review: January 29, 2012
In short: Great race. Good coordination, pretty much traffic free and a nice number of hills. Well done all. In full: Really enjoyed this today, and it reminded me of the Diss 15M, which seem to have dissapeared from the racing calender without explanation. Nice mid-winter tester along quiet roads. Definately back next year. Date of review: January 29, 2012
