In short: A great event! In full: Thanks to Tring running club for a very special well organised event every year. A tough course with some notable climbs and the reward is some excellent scenery in full autumn colours through Ashridge Forest along the historic Ridgeway path. Thanks and keep it going folks!

In short: Absolutely fantastic race with excellent marshalls and support !! In full: Can someone please explain why we pay for Police in our Council Tax but they choose not to Police road closures on fast roads. Hertfordshire Police should be ashamed of themselves. That said, the marshalls at road crossings were fantastic. Theres even a bar at the finish. Date of review: October 20, 2007
In short: Well worth it! In full: Near perfect conditions on the day (just a little mud) and big thanks to the organisers & marshals who made this a great run! It was my first run here and in a way it was better not to know what was coming - especially the last set of hills & the long lane back towards the finish. I felt like I had run a race afterwards! Enjoyable scenery & special ambience. Date of review: October 15, 2007
In short: Rather brutal course - even the down hill bits In full: I now remember why I hadn't run this race since 2001 - but was 6 mins faster despite tripping up. Seemed a little short of marshalls in places but those that were there were very good (odd exception). Date of review: October 14, 2007
In short: wonderful route, great organisation and a groovy T-shirt In full: How did the marshalls manage to offer encouragement, clap, direct runners and stop the traffic all at once? Absolutely seamless race with smiles from everyone! Date of review: October 14, 2007
In short: I love it! In full: Many thanks to Tring Running Club for such a wonderful event. A lovely day, fantastic scenery and great organisation. Marshalls seemed to be popping out all over the place on were gratefully on hand to give runners direction in the woods where the route was not so clear.
I have never heard such a buzz and chatter at the finishing area of happy punters all saying how great the course was and how much they had enjoyed it.
To top it all I ran 12 minutes quicker than last year. I've been smiling all week! Sign me up for next year. Date of review: October 10, 2006
