In short: Friendly, fun, not too long, civilised start time, nice T-shirt. In full: Always a good, friendly atmosphere possibly due to the time of year, but it starts at a civilised time and is not too long so an excellent antidote to the day before. Pleasant scenery, faster finish. Lost Santas spotted on marshalling duties made me chuckle. Nice T - shirt (last year's was better though). Date of review: January 8, 2008
In short: Nice race lots of people good atmosphere In full: Enjoyed this 5 mile post-christmas run. It was well marshalled I agree with others re finish line being choatic. Would have liked a medal at the end too. Date of review: December 28, 2007
In short: A great annual event! In full: I've been running this race every year for a while now. A friendly atmosphere, course just right for a good post-Xmas lunch workout, excellent t-shirt, and great tea and mince pies at finish! A friend reported problems at the finish line, though it was pretty clear by the time I arrived there! Perhaps stricter marshalling along the last 250 metres might solve some of the bottlenecks? Overall, I'm always impressed. Date of review: December 28, 2007
In short: Turkey burning run In full: I love this run for its short sharp course, uphill start and long downhill finish. You can't fail but feel good about yourself once you've finished and warmed down.
The great weather made this year even better. Well done Witham RC! Date of review: December 27, 2007
