In short: 5k trail run In full: My 11 year old son and I did the 5k fun run. The organisation was friendly but a bit confusing - the front runners weren't really sure where they were supposed to go, even at the start! But it was fine once we got going. It is a fairly hilly course, over rough grassland. Pretty much all trail; a short section of country lane at the start and end (a lollipop route). We'll definitely do it again. A Great beginners race - there weren't really any serious runners... I came in 2nd female and I'm not speedy! (1st female was about 10!). Date of review: July 2, 2012
In short: A very challenging 10k In full: A challenging 10k set in the beautiful Cotswold Hills. Hills being the main word here because there’s a big bugger right near the beginning and another steep one at the 7k point. A nice downhill finish makes it all worth while. It was fairly dry when I did it so would have to give it a tougher rating if the weather had been worse. A medal or T shirt might make it more worthwhile turning out for.
