In short: great day out for all the family In full: Fantastic run through the beautiful but normally off limits Cornbury Estate in aid of the local school. kids fun run makes for a family friendly day out. fantastic goodie bag, friendly atmosphere and beautiful home made cake stall rounded off a thoroughly enjoyable day and more than made up for the hills Date of review: May 31, 2012
In short: scenic... In full: ..... means lumpy / hilly. scenery stunning, event well organised, though shame there were so many other events on the same day reducing the numbers. would make a great XC course in the winter. Deers munching the fields, fish swimming in the lakes, much better than a loop of a ring road anyday. Date of review: September 25, 2011

In short: My first Race.......and ooh ek it hurt! In full: This was my 1st competitive race (recently completed a half marathon with mother at half speed :-)....). I was there by myself and surrounded by lots of t-shirts (i.e. clubs) which was a little intimidating for a first timer! Although the typical English weather put a bit of a downer to the surrounding countryside, I still managed to take in the beauty of it and the clear fresh air. That tarmac hill was a killer! I truely thought I was going to walk it....pushed through though and came in at 49mins. Good goodie bag - a medal would have been nice. Well organised and some friendly smiles at the end. Would do again. Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: A tough race witha goody bag that makes it worth it! In full: While there are no really big hills in this race it would still describe it as hilly as there are so many short off road hills that your legs know about it! Add to that 2 long slow climbs up a tarmac drive that sap any strength that you have make this race tough but fun. It's set in beautiful surroundings in a country park so no traffic to worry about.
The goody bag is excellent and the cake stand at the finish looked very tempting. It was only a very small field (122) yet I never felt lonely and there was a good atmospehere. Definately worth doing. Date of review: October 3, 2010
