In short: Great challenging first race In full: This was my first official race and it was great, can't wait for the next one. Friendly marshalls and Overton residents made my slow plod much more bearable. Great cake too!! Date of review: September 10, 2013
In short: A good race to open the new league season In full: Special thanks from Isle of Wight Road Runners to Overton. Two of our four cars were delayed by Red Funnel which ment we didn't arrive until 2:45. The race officials couldn't have been more helpful, reserving us parking close to the start & even offering to delay the start at one point. The race remains as well organised as ever, but thanks again to everyone concerned. Date of review: September 4, 2011
In short: The hill hurts whichever way you go up it! In full: Enjoyed the course direction change, as the wider opening mile gave more chance to find your position. The narrower start meant that the usual rush for the gate out of the field was less congested this year.
Very good organisation and continues to offer excellent value for money. Kids really enjoyed the 80m race before the start and both loved getting a medal (for free). Date of review: September 4, 2011
In short: A challenging two lap 5 miler around a charming village In full: Change in direction of the course this year, some liked it - some did'nt. What hadn't changed from previous years was the great organisation and support from the locals around the Village. Well done Overton Harriers Athletic club, see you next year.
