In short: Great local race on mixed terrain. Tough but rewarding! In full: Just wanted to say thanks to the organisers who put on an excellent show. Great atmosphere, great course, great marshalls, all very friendly - just..great! The course was excellent, better than 2008 I think, pleased to see you have kept the run in via the bridge. Good stuff! Date of review: September 19, 2010
In short: A lovely village race :) In full: I really enjoyed this race. Well organised and no problems on the day (onsite parking, minimal queues for race numbers and toilets!) The whole thing had a family atmosphere that made it more of an event than a hardcore race, so I didn't feel out of place plodding along towards the back.
The course itself was challenging - a few sneaky hills - but interesting terrain (grass, road and trail) and some lovely country views, plus it was well marshalled/signposted with 2 water stations along the route.
It was nice to have lots of spectators at the finish (and not just for the front runners) and the water bottle memento and banana were a nice touch.
I think the BBQ and bouncy castle went down well with those not running, plus the kids fun run later on meant people wanted to hang around.
Overall, a really enjoyable race/morning out. Thanks to all the organisers and sponsors - will definitely be back next year. Date of review: September 19, 2010
