In short: Pretty and friendly local race In full: Beautiful weather on the day and a friendly race village in a pretty village for a good cause. I think it's fair to say the course is undulating, but through very pretty countryside. A thoroughly enjoyable Sunday morning and I would have run this again this year, had I not have committed to the Copenhagen Half. Date of review: August 30, 2016
In short: Challenging hills, but where theres an up theres a down! In full: My first time doing this race and I'd definitely consider doing it again. Beautiful location and the marshalls were fab. Plenty of water stations which were needed as it was a very warm day! Disappointed not to have got a medal at the end though :( Date of review: September 25, 2014
In short: Undulating is the word to bear in mind! In full: A good run; rather a late start and packed in with the 10k bunch (would be nice if they could split the two races). One lap of the very pretty village then out onto the long roads; bearing in mind when you're running downhill at one point you'll be running back uphill when you turn and come the other way! But a PB for me so very pleased. Date of review: September 18, 2013
In short: Well organised countryside race but underlating verging on hilly! In full: Nice well organised countryside half along mostly traffic free roads with lots of marshalls. The relatively small field can result in gaps between runners so a bit of a time trial feel.
The route is underlating verging on hilly - my garmin recorded 670ft of climbing - so not the easiest place to PB
Entry fees went towards Hospice hence my comment on value
Probably would run again if not clashing with other events Date of review: September 17, 2012
In short: run for the hills... In full: WOW..they wasn't joking when they said undulating. Especially liked the start of the race round the village, past the houses and the residents. Seemed like lots of runners in the race until I turned right for the HM route and then seemed liked hardly anyone. Shame there was no goody bag at the end but then again, it is for a good cause. Was only 3 mins off a PB..even with all those hills :) Date of review: September 19, 2011
