In short: A low-key event that over-delivers In full: The Priory 10k is really well organised by a friendly team. It's quite a low key event and it attracts mostly locals from Berkshire and Hampshire as it begins to establish itself.
The route I would describe as undulating, with nothing scary but not quite enough flat stretches to sustain a rhythmn and a few little bumps to keep you on your toes. It's two loops of rural lanes, well marshalled and very friendly.
On Sunday, the biggest challenges were the gusting winds a mile from the finish - certainly made me work hard! - and my own desire to self-destruct by starting too quickly. Date of review: May 26, 2011
