In short: Excellent three race series In full: This is by far my favourite set of events and I will be back every year for it in future. The organisation is top draw, it has chip timing for accurate results and it has PB written all over it once you work out the course in race 1.
The fact that a race can attract 1,000 runners on a Wednesday night speaks volumes about how highly regarded this series has become and it is deserving of the praise it receives. Date of review: October 14, 2007
In short: Gutted that the series has finisher for another year! In full: I really look forward to the Yateley 10K Series and this year has been outstanding, now with chip timing and results text to me, I cant wait to run it again next year....
...A MASSIVE well done to everyone involved and a HUGE thanks aswell... See you in 2008 Date of review: August 5, 2007
In short: This race series has a big reputation and yet still exceeds expectatitonns In full: My first Yateley 10k race was race 3 this year, and I enjoyed it so much I'll be back for the whole series next year. Need I say any more?
OK, I will... chip-timing allowed for a very-relaxed start-line (no bumping and griding to stand at the front), the t-shirts, mugs, bottles, medals and photos were all top-quality. The expedience of the results was incredible - available within just a couple of hours!
A good informal commentary before the start, and at the finish helped to keep the warm spirit going.
I really enjoyed the course which is not in the least hilly. It is constantly undulating, but in a a good way - I find teh mild variation in effort slightly easier than the constant fever of an entirely flat course. There was a few yards of watery bog near the start/finish line, but I hear the organisers are trying to fix that for 2008.
Two drink stations, and a sponge-station on a 10k? How cool is that?! I wish we could have had little bottles of water instead of those cups which are almost empty by the time you've grabbed them, but that didn't matter too much tonight on a fairly cool evening.
Loads of parking, easy to get to, super-friendly and efficient. I'm also chuffed with knocking 46 seconds off my PB tonight!
How could I not be back for the whole shebang next year?!
In short: Good fast race and even faster results!!! In full: I ran all 3 and despite being slowets in the last enjoyed them all. Fantastic - results published via SMS and on the Web before the next morning and free photos.
Great work by the organisers Date of review: August 2, 2007
