In short: Lovely views of idyllic Cotswold villages on quiet country roads. In full: Very good if you like a quiet, low key race with ample hills. 4 good water stations (the tops are even taken off the bottles) and very nice t-shirt. Well organised and cheerful atmosphere. Scenic views are a bonus. Date of review: June 17, 2013
In short: Cracking way to spend a saturday evening In full: It really is a lovely course, long drags up hills aren't for everyone but I like getting my teeth into them. The views from the top of the first climb in particular are worth the fairly brutal start.
Only minor thing was as I'd lost sight of the guy in front around mile 10 I had to bark at a marshall about which way to go as he was too busy with a pint in his hand, admittedly my frustration may have been with the pint in his hand.
I'll be back no doubt at some point, too good a use of a Saturday evening in the summer :) Date of review: June 16, 2013
