In short: Friendly, informal 10k In full: Course - Needs work to remove the 2 laps of the memorial ground before hitting the rest of the course. With woodland and country lanes all around, a better course is out there. The hill at 7-9km is a welcome challenge!
Value - £6 entry is a bargain - and shows that some 10k's over complicate things with chip timing that adds unnecessarily to the cost.
Organisation - Well organised, well marshalled. Decent medal. Also had a fair for friends/family as well as kids race and 8km walk.
In short: Great village atmosphere!! In full: Great village atmosphere, although didn't think much of the hill at the 7k mark!!! Overall nice run all be it a bit hilly....but the cheering crowds along the front of the fairground lift your spirits!! Great cheap family day out as the kids (8 & 3) loved taking part in the 3k fun run, and running with the kids is a great way to warm up! Only downside....THE TOILETS, not enough & pretty grim!
In short: Cheap and cheerful Sunday morning out in Mortimer In full: At £6 this is the cheapest race I've attended all year and well worth turning up for. A couple of laps round the roads surrounding the green soon give way to quiet country lanes and some nice inclines to stretch the legs. Good support all around the start/finish area and parking was a breeze. Thanks RRR :) Date of review: September 26, 2010
