In short: The very best road race in Kent In full: This has got absolutely everything. Scenery, hills, excellent facilities. And the final 3km are a downhill plummet. Wonderful. Date of review: October 11, 2016
In short: How do they manage sunshine every year as well as everything else!? In full: Gorgeous. Only one tiny quibble on the organising front which was otherwise friendly and flawless - some matting put down in the car park exit would speed things up hugely at the end when we're all trying to get home.

In short: A lovely run with some fantastic scenery. A nice mix of up and down hills on roads and footpaths. It was a bit quicker than I was expecting but thoroughly enjoyable and well organised. Date of review: May 1, 2015
In short: My all time favorite 10k In full: Love this race. The most well organised 10k I have entered. Love the medal and always a reasonable crowd along the route cheering you on. Much prefer the chip on the race number they use to the ones you have to tie on shoe lace.
My only negative was the water station at 5km I went to take a cup of fluid from one of the blokes there and he said "NO" and refused to give it to me! I then realised he was giving out drinks to only his friends (or fellow running club members). So I had to stop running and grab a water from the table. Minor issue but I would suggest that drinks for specific runners should not be allocated out at the main drinks stop.
In short: A great race as always In full: Great to see over 600 people turn up for an 08:30 start, says it all really. Deceptively challenging run but a wonderful one lap event, good to see familar faces each year. Thanks from us all at Sevenoaks AC. Date of review: April 21, 2015

In short: Stunning as always In full: Great parking. Love the early start as it gives you the rest of the day. Good registration and chip / number collection method. Okay facilities. Chip timing was very good. Marshals were very friendly and helpful - full of cheer and smiles. The route is glorious (a few challenging bits that make you work). Just love this event. QUALITY QUALITY medal - worth it's weight in gold. Banana, water and chocy bar after - also home cooked snacks for sale to raise money for the school. Another fine job Darent Valley. Thanks go also to Anthony Roper school and the very patient drivers who were held up for a while. Date of review: April 20, 2015
In short: The toughest yet most enjoyable of all runs! In full: Very organised, great photography, regular feeds of updates on social media leading up the event. Welcomes all abilities. Although the course is challenging, there are only two major hills with the rest undulating. In addition there is a lot of welcoming downhill sections to compensate! Post race there are stools and treats which is great. Chip timed and instant results put up for show!
In short: Great scenery, lovely race, well organised In full: Loved this race. Apart from the huge hill half way round! Loved the 2k downhill finish. Extremely pretty run through some quaint little towns and countryside. Date of review: April 20, 2015
