In full: The Romsey 5 mile was very well organized and good for either a PB or for a first time runner. Fairly flat course and good amount of volunteers on the course. We got lucky and had a great weather day for January as well.
I ran a 30:14 for the day and was quite happy with the course.
I liked the fact that T-Shirts were made available. I purchased one, but felt it could have beeen a bit less expensive if sponsors were added to sleeves.
Overall, rate this race as a top fixture and will come back Date of review: January 29, 2010

In short: Enjoyed my first ever 5 mile race and gained a great time because of the course In full: A few minor hills and rises interrupted a predominantly flat race. The course is quick and well worth a PB attempt if you're thinking of it. Organised fairly well although the school turned out to be a little tricky to find in order to register. All in all though, friendly organisers, good respectable route and most enjoyable Date of review: January 26, 2010
In full: It was the first time I has done this race and will be back next year. I managed a PB and was well chuffed with that. The route was scenic especially as I have never even been to Romsey, enjoyed the gradients of the hills. Date of review: January 25, 2010
In short: Quite a fast course In full: I enjoyed this race and got a PB, its a quick route, flat then gradually up for a mile or so which means you then have a mile or so of gradual down after which was great! Some inconsiderate runners oblivious to what was going on, starting too near the front in the start and wearing MP3 players who were a hazard to themselves and other runners! Organisation a bit strange in that they mail out the numbers but you have to do a 5-10 min walk from the start to pick up your chip on the day, then there was no timing chip at the start so I didn't really see what the point of that was. No problems with cars even though the route was not close off. I would definitely do this race again. Date of review: January 24, 2010
