In short: Canal start and finish, decent off road in between. In full: As someone who is not too keen on canal running, I was surprised part way round to realise how much I was enjoying it! Could have benefitted from electronic timing so that there was not so much working out for people to do as there was a staggered start. Shame that the weather was not great, or we would have made a day of it and done the walk in the afternoon too! Thanks to all involved. Date of review: September 19, 2013
In short: Lovely scenic off-road race In full: This is a great race with bangers and mash in the pub afterwards. Really well organised and the hill isn't even too bad! Date of review: September 16, 2013
In short: Fantastic event - book me in for 2014 In full: Great course, wonderful marshals - thanks to all at Droitwich AC for making us feel so welcome and for putting on such a good event. Date of review: September 15, 2013
In short: Nice scenic 9 miles with a killer hill. Well organised. In full: The 9 miles was a nice distance for those who want a step up from a 10k, or training for a half marathon.
The staggered start was a great idea as it is narrow along the canal, but some of the faster runners should have started earlier, as the first 5-10 mins we were overtaken by some fast ones and we were near the back. Not a big issue though.
The route wasn't quick, with a killer hill up to a church, but was a nice route with a good mix of terrain. The marshals were very friendly and encouraging, with a good amount of water stations.
The t-shirt was a nice prize, no medal though. Parking facilities were good, as it was free parking on a Sunday. The bangers and mash for all finishers in the pub after was a delicious treat, and rounded off an enjoyable race nicely. Would consider doing it next year. Date of review: September 18, 2012

In short: a beautiful challenging run In full: I signed up for this run to help me get ready to do the great birmingham half marathon next month. I thought this was a great run…beautiful views…great atmosphere…and well organized! There was a huge killer hill…but its a great push! I will definitely do this one again! :) Date of review: September 17, 2012
