In short: Good run, generally well marshalled, would do again In full: Bit narrow in places along the towpath, made it difficult to overtake, particularly if someone slower in front of you. Didn't see any markers after 10k, and marshalls were less at the end through the town. But overall good run Date of review: August 2, 2006
In short: A fun race and a great day out with the family In full: My second time running this race. Last year i was chucking it down and they reduced the distance as we were standing on the start line.
Nothing like that this year... a lovely route (although too narrow to overtake in a number of spots) and well marshalled. The run is part of the Wallingford Fun Day so there was plenty of entertainment to keep my parents and children occupied while I flew (ha, ha!) round the relatively flat course.
A fun race, you are never going to get a PB with all the narrow sections unless you lead from the start(!) and a great day out for all the family Date of review: July 25, 2006
In short: So pleased it wasn't blazing hot! In full: Not too hot in the end. A bit slippery in places from previous day's downpour. Scenery was great but I was watching where my feet were going most of the time - not used to off-road. Plenty of water. Reasonably flat. Great marshalling. Great experience.

In short: Lovely scenery, some rough terrain. Would definitely do again. In full: This being my first 13k I was a little put off by the small field (400 runners) and the large number of club vests! Didn't come last though and everyone was really friendly. Excellent marshalls - though could have done with a couple more once we entered the town! Will be back next year.

In short: Lovely run, lots of water. both to drink and look at! In full: Had a lovely run today. Thankfully not too hot, so made for very pleasant racing. Organisers had laid on 2000 bottles of water apparently! Three water points, and a nice course along the river. A bit uneven under foot, and a bit of a tight squeeze at some points, but good course. Could maybe have done with a couple more marshalls in the closing stages, they seemed to disappear a bit around 10km, and also when we reentered the town and had to cross the oncoming traffic.. Would do it again! Date of review: July 23, 2006
