In short: Tough! In full: Didn't really read previous reviews which was probably a good idea as didn't know it would be as challenging! Friendly atmosphere, lovely location. Def one to do if you want a good stamina training session in before a 10k! Date of review: July 28, 2011
In short: Tough but rewarding 5K! In full: I'm not sure why more local runners don't take part in this series of races. £5 entry (or £12 for the series of 3 with half the money going to the organisation that maintains the woods) is a bargain!
Through the lovely Joydens Wood, this is a tough 5K. Sure it's got lots of hills and you're unlikely to PB. But it's very well organised and even though most of the runners wear club vests it's in no way elite - runners of all abilities are welcome. And every 10th finisher gets a bottle of wine!
