In short: Hilly rural 10k In full: This is a hilly 10k.mostly uphill for the first 8k, then good running over last 2k to finish. Well marshalled with goody bag & T shirt.
However disappointingly for a club organised event the vets over 60 are ignored.There is no 60 or 65 category. Consequently the results are meaningless for anyone over 60 or 65 as all are listed as over 55. It would at least be nice to have some idea where one finished in one's age categories as surely this is a basic expectation.
In short: Enjoyable Hills! In full: Quite a hilly course(yet not as bad as I thought listening to some of the runners at the beginning of the race!). Good local support, and a lovely downhill from about 7.5k. Will be back next year! Date of review: July 16, 2012
In short: A break in the rain, and a few hills - a pleasant Sunday morning! In full: A pleasant run - starting from the Jag club, and quickly heading out into the wilds of of the Coventry area. a course with a few hills, but a nice section of downhill from 8km onwards allowed for some good speed!

In short: Good race would run it again and recommend it to others In full: Fancied a 10K and found this race on Runners World. Easy to find and park. Course was the type of rural one I enjoy and challenging enough that you can feel happy with your time. Last 400m ("Finish just round the bend"!) the longest of my life. Just outside a PB so happy with the run Date of review: July 15, 2012
In short: Undulating = hilly In full: Hi, thank you for a yummy flapjack rather than the usual banana. I enjoyed the race. Although I did not notice too many downhill sections! Date of review: July 15, 2012
In short: Rubbish prizes In full: Decent enough course with good pb potential. Prizes are very disappointing. I win a £15 gift voucher that has to be spent within a month and solely on shoes. Obviously most running shoes in shops cost £50-£75. Plus the short time frame for the voucher means that most people probably don't get chance to spend it particularly if they are not local to Coventry. Date of review: June 13, 2011
