In short: A great first time race series, simple and short In full: This is my first time, and I enjoyed it will contine with the other 2 in the series, Course was a forest path Other runners very friendly
In short: Really enjoyed it In full: I really enjoyed the race! The scenery was beautiful, the atmosphere was very welcoming and the faster runners were really supportive of my efforts. I'd recommend it for a beginner like myself. Maybe better with a bigger field? Still a good way to spend a Sunday morning and deserves far more support. Will be back for the other two races.

In short: Nice course In full: thought it was a nice course and a great run for locals, with superb route markings and really friendly organisers..... but not enough competitors to make me come back. Date of review: December 14, 2008
In short: Friendly, well organised event which deserves better support In full: The event is organised round a loop in the Forest of Dean which allows runners to choose 5.4km. 10.4km or 15.4km. The starts are staggered so the longer distance, mid and short move of at 15 min intervals. Chipped for time and a medal at the end with t-shirt for people doing all three in the series. Great idea and desrves more support.Firm trails allowed for easy running but without the pounding of tarmac. Good camaraderie and small enough field for facilities to cope seamlessly. highly recommended. Date of review: December 14, 2008
In short: A Great Race For All In full: Overall a very enjoyable event. Scenery was fantastic, choice of route was brill and a good mix of runners. Organisation was simple but effective with a good friendly atmosphere. I cant make the January event, but I will be there in February.
