In short: Perfect introduction back into racing for ex-runner In full: This was the first race I've done for several years, and I was really pleased that it was so low-key and friendly.
I was also really pleased that at 53mins I wasn't left behind everyone, and thought the route was a great combinationof different scenery and kept my mind off the pain - particularly the cricket match!
Would definitely look to do this again. Date of review: May 9, 2005
In short: lovely low key race In full: Very friendly race with excellent marshalling and organisation. The route through the woods is beautiful and I enjoyed the route passing horse riders (who very patiently stopped and waited for several runners to pass) and taking in a cricket match. Small numbers mean there is no fighting for your space and the marshalls win top prizes for their friendly words of encouragement. Initially I was less than thrilled by "there is no clock" on the race information but it actually made it all the more personal to have my time shouted out by the guy with the stop watch (race organiser?) as I got to the finish. Definitely one to do again. Date of review: May 8, 2005
