In short: Good local race - again! In full: Just like last year, the race was organised well and run to time. The area is lovely to run round and even though the roads were not closed I saw two, maybe three cars...
I know Sherston CC are doing something new next year and given how well the 10k was done over recent years, I'll probably give it a go!
No results up anywhere, yet. This is the only downside for me. Date of review: September 23, 2010
In short: Great 10K with lovely atmosphere In full: A Highly enjoyable and reasonably challenging 10K through the beautiful countryside around Sherston.
The atmosphere of the whole event was extremely friendly and I look forward to next year's event - though I hear the format may be slightly different....
One thing I hadn't come across before, was aside from the normal prizes, there were prizes for the first Sherston Man and Woman - I thought this was a briliant idea that should be adopted by bigger races to encourage more local entrants.
A huge well done to Sherston for a great day out. Date of review: September 20, 2010
In short: A very well organised race, that has a nice friendly local feel to it good for all kinds of runner. In full: The course had a nice scenic route through country lanes, the people organising the race were very friendly and gave a good level of support, and the organisation ran like clock work. A posible improvement would be to advertise the race a bit more especialy with local clubs to keep the local feel to the race. but overall well done Sherston. Date of review: September 19, 2010
In short: A lovely small village affair In full: The hills/inclines were short, and sometimes sharp, but not as daunting as I'd imagined. It would be nice if the race were marked in Km as opposed to miles though - it made a right mess of my mental arithmetic when I was trying to figure out my speed & estimated finishing time whilst running along...

In short: Very pleasant rural race,hills are manageable. In full: Could it be marked in km, not miles, next year? And the number of portaloos at race 'HQ' increased? It's a nice course, it'd be lovely for a slow run, but when racing you don't really lok at the scenery so much.
In short: Nice quiet rural race In full: Enjoyed this run. Quiet and relaxed race. I question the wisdom of having a 10k run marked out in miles though. Also not convinced it was an accurate distance but it was a briliant Sunday run :) Date of review: October 1, 2008
