In short: Good event, but leave your stopwatch at home In full: A warm evening on a National Trust estate, starting outside the house, with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, enthusiastically and competently organised and marshalled.
I was expecting on/off road and hills, but wasn't quite ready for the narrow, twisty, stony paths through woods, jumping logs and branches, queuing for stiles and gates, running down steps, all of which was enjoyable, but slow. No distance markers and being held up for minutes at a time with no chance of overtaking meant this wasn't a 10k where the finishing time meant a lot.
But it was enjoyable, a bit different and just down the road for me so I'll probably come back next year. Date of review: May 25, 2012
In short: Challenging scenic 10k In full: The glorious location of Tyntesfield estate made for a special first event. Well organised and good value for money hopefully this challenging but pretty 10k will stay in the calendar for years to come. Twice the climb of Frenchay with the emphasis on multi-terrain this race shouldn't be missed. Date of review: May 27, 2011
In short: Great new race,Lovely views, nice off road course, would be harder if wet In full: The goody bag was a reusable cotten shopping bag, very good idear, will have much more use than a t shirt or medel! Date of review: May 25, 2011
