In short: Excellent value, a runners' race and perfect PB potential! In full: A bargain of a 10k, the ten pound entry fee includes car parking in Black Park, a five pounds voucher, energy drink and mars bar! Organisation was perfect from the emails in the build up to the start and the marshalling. But the best bit is the speedy course. I've run about 4 10k races this year and have had lots of 40:XX times. But today I was able to smash the sub 40 barrier by 30 seconds. The course actually has a net downhill, is mostly pancake flat and counts on Po10. What's not to like?! Date of review: October 4, 2015
In short: Great race, amazing organisation, and great goodies In full: Great flat course, excellent PB potential. A medal, goody bag with chocolate, drink and other goodies and all for £10, oh and the parking is included too. Nothing to loose really. Will definitely be back. Date of review: October 5, 2014
In short: Fast, flat 10k In full: This is the first time I've done this race and I will definitely be back. A PB for me and it was a lovely mainly flat course, well marshalled. Fantastic medal at the end and the mars bar as well as the banana was very welcome. My only gripe was the slight incline in the woods at the end which meant I slightly lost my momentum towards the finish. Will know for next year though. Date of review: October 7, 2013
In short: Very well organised and fun quick race In full: Everything is set up to make this race simple and enjoyable. Plenty of friendly marshalls to help with the parking, water stations and directions. The course itself is very forgiving and I've posted a PB the last 2 years I've taken part.
In short: Super Organised and a Fast friendly Race In full: As has been said this is a great 10K organised by the same people who week in week out organised the Black Park parkrun.... so runs like clockwork! Cheap to enter and great handouts at the end. One to do every year!! Date of review: September 30, 2012
In short: Feels just like a longer Parkrun! In full: This is just a brilliant race, I can't rate it too highly. I was worried the small field would mean lots and lots of fats runners, but, no, it felt just like a Parkrun. No tension, a real relaxed feel about it. If you are a first timer, its a great race to start for a 10k.
Brilliant organisation, loads of marshalls, overall downhill course, mars bars, Mars Bar drink, free parking for runners and a £5 Sweatshop voucher...
Run under trees, it would be good in the sun too.
Just a brilliant race. Thank you Marshalls. Date of review: September 30, 2012
In short: Brilliant race, fast course In full: This race cost 10 quid and you get a £5 SweatShop voucher at the end, plus a few things to eat and drink and a medal. The course is great - really quick and seemed to have more downhill than up. Everything was great and I'd definitely do it again. Just a great, fast race done really well. Great location in Black Country Park, too. Date of review: October 11, 2011
