In short: Excellent Race, well organised In full: I thoroughly enjoyed this race, as indeed I did last year. The scenery is lovely, obviously helped with the great weather we had this year and last. I thought the medal was a nice touch, definitely looking forward to next year, although I suspect my luck with the weather may be running out! Date of review: November 15, 2012
In short: A must do In full: First race for me and had a fantastic race. Nice PB to finish the morning off. Sadly I will be marshalling next year so won't enjoy it again for a while but will definitely enter when I can. Fantastic reception all round and good job to the marshals Will definitely recommend to anyone Date of review: November 15, 2012
In short: nice run through pleasant countryside, well organised. In full: just too echo previous reviewers this is a nice, well-organised 10miler with little or no traffic, in fact can't remember a single car!
But, just in case anyones think of doing this as a first time race, remember, no showers or changing facilities, so if it had been like Billericay the week before where we got drenched! it may not be quite so much fun.
Other than that, all good, nice medal to get slung in the bag with all the others, pity I didn't read the small print and bring an extra t shirt, but thats my own fault - some runners prefer medals, me, I'd like a new pair of socks as a memento, but don't suppose I'm in a majority there!

In short: An excellent 10 mile race in the Essex countryside In full: This is a must do race for me. It is very local but its also a decent course; perfect to see where you are with training. The weather this year couldn't have been better and the medal at the end was a nice change - not that I disliked the t-shirts previously.
Well done to Grange Farm, all of the marshalls and supporters for another great Stebbing 10. Date of review: November 12, 2012
In short: Great Race In full: I ran a lousy race, but that's my fault. The event was very well organised, very friendly, and a lovely route. Well signposted and marshalled. Unusual medal, with the poppy centre - very attractive. It's going into the diary for next year. Date of review: November 12, 2012
In short: Great day out In full: This was my very first race and I couldn't of wished for a nicer day. The weather was perfect and the scenery was lovely. As a near beginner, 10 miles is my limit at the moment, but the course proved to be quite flat and forgiving. The exception being the hill from 6.5 to 8 miles which was a nice challenge, after which it seemed to flatten out for a nice kick home. Many thanks to the organisors for providing an excellent event and to the marshalls for cheering us on (trust me, I needed it!)
Looking forward to next year already. Date of review: November 12, 2012
In short: This is a must for you race calendar! In full: Second time running this event and loved it even more this time. Organisation is good, course is good with nice scenery and good ups and downs. Service at the start is lovely. I moaned last year about no medal and this year there was a great medal. All in all I would definetly recommend this race and will definetly be back next yesr! Date of review: November 12, 2012
In short: Great race, well organised, loved the medal In full: Less 'would you do it again?' than 'why didn't I run this one before?'. Great course and organisation, lovely village atmosphere and people, pre-race service was special as was the medal at the end. Plus glorious sunny day and autumn scenery. Can't ask for more!

In short: Lovely race through pretty countryside and good organisation! In full: A great 10 miler with a decent mix of quick and not-so-quick runners. Nice minutes silence at start for Remembrance day. Route was quite despite all road and a tiny bit of undulation made it less dull than a flat race. Nice atmosphere and medal. Definitely on my list to come back to. I did a 3 min pb, but that's more a reflection of it being 2 years since I last ran a 10 miler! Date of review: November 11, 2012
