In short: Excellent race despite the weather, really nice course. In full: Ran as a training run with friends 3 weeks post London Marathon & had a great time despite the rain. Friends ran PBs while I enjoyed the course. Excellent marshalls & support. Undulating & generally downhill on the way back. Carpark not ideal in the rain but very well marshalled. Nice goody bag & medal. It's not local to me but I may well be back to run it for a PB next year. Date of review: May 15, 2007
In short: Excellent event, very well organised, superb route In full: Excellent event, very well organised, superb route, glorious scenery and a fantastic atmosphere. We saw very little traffic and what there was very considerate and passed by very slowly. Runners parking was very well organised if a little far away, BUT, no problem. Overall, a must-do for next year. Well done Les Bond and team. Date of review: May 15, 2007
In short: Wish I had know Undulating meant UP to 5-6K . But good day In full: Felt I was slow and it was my slowest but I blame it on a full feeling and the up, seemed more up than down although it could not have been. Parking well organised. Race well marshalled. Quiet little roads. Pleasant scenery even in the rain. Small pot of honey in the goody bag. Local restaurant/pub we ran passed pricey but OK with tired runners.

In short: Good event despite the weather In full: Found it a little bit difficult to find the carpark but the rest of thr race was very well organised. Some challenging up hills near the begining but all evened out over the course. Goodie bag very interesting although I'm not sure it was a real hot cross bun?
Second time I've entered and managed to take nearly 3 imniutes of two years ago. Would do this race again. Date of review: May 14, 2007
In short: I've just had a fantastic morning out. In full: A great race. Hot cross bun, goody bag, lovely rural course, great friendly atmosphere. I just wish I'd known when the presentation started, I almost missed it! Date of review: May 13, 2007
