In short: Tough 6k in beautiful shropshire countryside In full: Well organised friendly 6k in aid of cancer charities. Marshals were great and supportive, weather glorious and course thankfully dry. A couple of tough hills including the "bite" but nothing too bad - definitely not going to be a PB though. Chip timing, celebratory starter (!), decent medal and certificate all at a reasonable price. Date of review: October 7, 2013
In short: The wetter it is the better this gets! Great race as always. In full: Well organised and marshalled. Great course a bit of everything - and Steve Bull (Wolves legend) to start the race. Apologies to Don Goodman who has started the race for the past few years but Bully just pips you in the legend stakes - although would have been nice to see him put his trainers on and 'ave a goo!

In short: Tough, but fab little race. In full: Friendly organisers & great marshals. In fact, never seen such enthusiastic marshals, despite the fact they were standing in the rain! Tough, muddy, slippy race in places. But a great course. Quite odd running through a leek field! The smell was lovely....Made me want to pull a few up & make a salad! Nice pub venue for prize giving. Unusual cartoon memento. Would the numpties that kept running through the finish line 2 & 3 times, please not do that again! You were experienced runners too. Highly likely the last 50 will get the wrong time because of you.....grrrr.... Date of review: October 4, 2010
In short: My first proper race in 20 yrs clocked an unofficial time of just over 32mins. Great friendly race, well organised and well supported, marshalls were excellent and the course was great fun especially after all the rain.Will be back next year. 8) Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: Excellent!! In full: My first ever-running event i've only been running for three weeks and decided to give it a go. I'm so glad i did, i'd planned to run it in 40 mins, It ended up being 37.04 which im happy with. 30 mins next year !! Date of review: October 8, 2009
In short: Mildly challenging little race In full: Putting aside the fact that I felt fairly bad throughout...this is a cracking little race. A few undulations to challenge the more experienced runners but short enough to be a good introduction for newbies. Having said this, conditions really were perfect and it would be considerably tougher if there'd be any rain recently.
For footie fans there was the benefit of being able to meet Don Goodman! Date of review: October 6, 2009
In short: Fun & friendly - a lovely challenging race. In full: First time doing the Badger Bite. Wasn't as bad as I was expecting - although after a bit of rain I can imagine running across the ploughed field would have been more entertaining.
Great race with a really good local feel to it - hope to be able to enter again next year! Date of review: October 6, 2009
