In short: Definately hilly but great scenery, route was traffic free & interesting In full: The hill at the start is challenging but the scenery more than makes up for it. The route is virtually traffic free & well organised with the finish line is up one last hill were a decent size crowd cheered everyone in.
This was my first race for years & in fact has inspired me to sign up for more. Thank you to the organisers & I hope you raised lots of money for the Hospice Date of review: October 6, 2013
In short: Great feel to the event, shame about the distance markers! In full: Great charity focused event. Course is tough with varied route but don't believe anyone who says it isn't hilly. Lots of great elements - community feel, 1k for kids, lots of support just a shame there were NO DISTANCE MARKERS ! Date of review: September 16, 2013
In short: Hard in places but scenic course In full: Always a great race to look forward to in the event calendar. Terrific crowd support and a picturesque circuit. Testing in places and a few nice hills near the end. Great fund raising event for Hospice in The Weald.
In short: What hills? In full: C'mon guys, there are a few short climbs in this race, but nothing you could call a hill. I think you notice them more because they come towards the end, and are a bit of a wake up call. Date of review: September 22, 2012
In short: Great 10k - the hills are good for you! In full: Run this 10k every year, and it was even better this year with the free t-shirt. Few hills, including one leg burner at the end, but a great 10k in a lovely part of the country. Date of review: September 22, 2012
In short: Hilly! In full: My home town race and ran it for the first time. Very hilly but I knew that already. Running t-shirt with registration and a medal. All round good course but challenging. I'll be back next year Date of review: September 18, 2012

In short: Good race, nice day, uplifting atmosphere to keep you going up the hills! In full: Lovely race, nice scenery, well organised. People cheered us on which was positively uplifting, especially up Hungershall hill- A killer on the 8km marker. However slowly but surely i kept up the jogging pace and finished in 1 hour 2 mins, with a sprint at the end. My first ten k race. Good challenge, will be back next year!
