In short: Better route this year - good work! In full: Nice route change and well organised as usual. Didn't set a PB this year, but the team came second!! Town centre finish could do with a bit more atmosphere - bring on next year. Date of review: March 25, 2007
In short: Enjoyable race. Route not the most scenic but finish through the town made up for it. In full: Was impressed by the organisation of this race. Although the route was not the most scenic, I found it to be a fast course compared to some races I've done nearer to home in Leicestshire. This certainly helped me to break my PB by 10 seconds, which I wasn't expecting, as it's my first race back since a hip injury!
I was happy with the food content of the goody bag. The chocolate bar and bag of sweets were much appreciated! Not sure that I've found the key ring so useful! Overall, a very enjoyable race with a good atmosphere at the start/finish, which makes up for the atmosphere/scenery en route. Definitely one I'll consider doing again. Date of review: March 3, 2007
In short: good atmosphere very well organised In full: change of route takes you through the town and round the loverly tamworth castle.very well organised and friendly,only down side the army cadets that were marshaling were not interacive,i think a nice cheery marshal as in previous years,gives you a big boost.

In short: Nice race not much support In full: A nice run in the morning but not very many spectators, must still be in bed. marshalls quiet on the support but organisation very good and well signposted. Date of review: February 22, 2007
In short: Well organised, friendly race. In full: New route improved the course from the previous years. Ok the scenery might not be the best but traffic free all the way - you can't have everything. Nice goody bag with a nice solid medal - not sure about the crisps! Overall a nice "big event" feel to it. Date of review: February 21, 2007
In short: On My Doorstep In full: This race is right on my door step so thought I'd givce it a go. It's not the most picturesque of places to run but still enjoyable. More than likely I'd run this again next year.. Date of review: February 21, 2007
In short: Great start to the year In full: Again, a very well organised race, good atmosphere at the start and overall a great Sunday morning race. Facilities far better than at other races and the warm up was a nice touch. Shame nicer parts of Tamworth couldn't be included in the route (I suspect non-locals get a very unfair impression), but guess it's a necessary sacrifice to have a safe traffic-free route finishing in the town centre. Very impressed to see results available by Sunday afternoon too. Beat last year's time by 7 mins so I'm chuffed. Only minor gripe is that local support was sparse especially in the town centre - perhaps better advirtising would help next year? Date of review: February 21, 2007
