In short: Great route, excellent value, but don't wear headphones or you'll pay the price. In full: An excellent route 99% off road through fields and forests. A nice river crossing to contend with and a few beastly hills near the end. I made the mistake of missing the advice of 'no headphones' and was not told at any point before, during or after the race. My own fault..DSQ! Date of review: April 8, 2013
In short: Love the cake In full: very welcoming and well organised event, the only negative was we could have done with a bit more water towards the half way mark. The hills oh the hills, just what you need towards the end. It was all worth the effort for the cake and coffe at the end. Date of review: April 7, 2013
In short: Thanks to all involved In full: This was my first attempt at this course and I loved it. The hill at c.8 miles is challenging but not as bad as I had imagined and the wade trough the river was welcome given the improving temperatures.
I would just like to say a big thank you to all of the organisers, marshalls, locals and runners. You made this an excellent event with your enthusiasm, support and welcome Date of review: April 7, 2013
In short: Favourite race of the year! In full: This the third time I've run Chedworth RT, and for me it's a highlight of my running calendar. It's a rural, undulating route with lots to see and varying surfaces (and a splash through a river, of course). There are some challenging hills, and this year some tricky mud. The marshals were all unstintingly friendly and supportive. My only minor grumble is that the delicious home-made cake stand at the end was replaced by a burger van in the car-park, which is not quite the same vibe. Date of review: March 22, 2012
In short: Great challenging race! In full: Really awesome, loved all the mud, fun running through the river and some awesome climbs! only criticism could of done with some mile markers, other than that really well organised! Date of review: March 21, 2012
In short: Great course, marshalls, organisation! In full: My first race of this nature and I loved it! Quite challenging but not overwhelming. Definitely on my to-do list for next year. Date of review: March 18, 2012
In short: Hilly but not silly In full: This was my 55th birthday 'treat' to myself, does this mean I am actually 'getting out more?'The course was well planned - muddy, firm, hilly, flat - and well marshalled. I enjoyed it (in that 'I'm glad I have finished, perhaps I'll come back next year' kind of way). There were showers...not during race, but to wash oneself apres run, something that many of the 'bigger' events cannot manage. Date of review: March 18, 2012
