In short: Hard in places but well worth doing In full: Very well organised & plenty of Marshall's on the route, it was a very testing run with a couple of long hills thrown in for fun. Would have been nice to get a medal at the end instead of a t-shirt but that would be my only negative comment & will be running it again next year Well done Saffron Walden.
In short: Super 10K! In full: My very first time at this lovely event and I wasn't disappointed: Superb organisation, very friendly & motivating marshals, a very scenic and undulating course which gave you something to do, very yummy cakes and a very good quality technical t-shirt. I shall be back next year. Date of review: September 29, 2013
In short: Old school race In full: This is like the old fashioned race, where PB is not essential, but having a good time is certain., The course is very good compared to other races around here, and when you finish despite your time it makes you feel like you have achieved something. Well done to the organisers! Date of review: October 6, 2012
In short: Challenging In full: First time race and new PB so far :) VERY narrow at stages and a little dull if I'm honest,! killer hill near the end which was fun for me as I over took plenty :) all in all very pleased and will be returning next year Date of review: October 1, 2012
In short: good scenery but lot of ups and downs. good facilities at the start plus homemade cakes and superior icecream. A very good technical shirt as a momento. All in all a permanent fixture in the diary. Date of review: September 25, 2011
In short: Well organised and marshalled race! In full: My first time running the Saffron Walden 10k, and I'll be back for more. With a large changing area, hot showers, refreshments, a testing course, drinks station and army of marshalls there is little more to wish for. A bottle of water and quality T-Shirt at the end seal the deal though. I'll be back next year - hopefully thinner and fitter :| Date of review: September 27, 2010
In short: challenging hills and varied interesting terrain In full: Well run from start to finish with lots of helpful marshalls and impressive facilities. Nice tee-shirt and bottle of water at the finish. Miserable weather unfortunately...dull and drizzly rain on and off. The first half has a long challenging uphill roadside section, second half is smoother and quicker apart from a cheeky stinker of a hill at the start of the last Km. Narrow tracks in some places make it hard to overtake near the beginning. Date of review: September 26, 2010
