In short: Fast, Flat, Friendly In full: Well organised. Clearly posted route. Great marshals plenty of water stations. One of the best looking medals I've got from a race and you get a t-shirt too! What more can you ask for. Well done Nice Work Date of review: March 12, 2014
In short: Very well organised and great fun! In full: A really enjoyable race, slightly too hot weather, but a great atmosphere. My first 1/2 marathon, so a PB, but really enjoyed it! Thanks! Date of review: March 11, 2014
In short: Well done Nice Work! In full: A really enjoyable half marathon. Very good organisation, friendly atmosphere and a decent route. It has bundles of PB potential but somehow all my PB's are on undulating runs. Great medal and decent shirt. Thanks to all the supportive stewards. Marvellous weather.
Only part I disliked was at about 6 miles there is a run around a cone, not into that, but I understand the reasons why!
In short: Great first Surrey Half with lovely scenery from country to town, friendly and enthusiastic marshalls, uplifting finish on the track and great bands and spectators on route too. As mentioned before, pricey entry fee with no goodie bag. Heres to 2015! Date of review: March 11, 2014
In short: Wat a medal ! In full: This was my 3rd time but I struggled for whatever reason(not a fast runner anyway)maybe heat, too many jelly tots, that extra banana- who knows ?? BUT medal splendiferous, t-shirt-WOW and I enjoyed it as always, will definitely do it again next year (but I wont drink the lemon and mint fizzy water yuk) Date of review: March 11, 2014
In short: Thank you Ivanhoe Runners In full: On behalf of Bea from BRATS...This is just to thank you all who took part in organising this fantastic event. I have run many races at home and abroad and this one does stand out with superb organisation, friendly and thoughtful marshals at many water stops, everything you needed was thought off and everything was ticking off so perfectly well. Indeed, a not an easy route but enjoyable with your support, to top it up, blue skies and the sun shining just in order to celebrate the 25 th Anniversary. Well done again, this one is going to be one of my favourites. Date of review: March 11, 2014
In short: It's such a great event! In full: As an ex-Race Director of this event, I wanted to run it for myself. Others have said it went like clockwork, and it did. Hardly had I finished a water bottle than the next drink station was coming up. Weather was superb - well done Ivanhoe Runners for getting that right - and everything else too!

In short: disarmingly challenging In full: well organised , friendly challenging race it was a warm day, the marshals were superb as always especially the 2 gents at the top of snakes lane east by the lights , not very scenic a little bit crowed this yr but still a good run c u next yr Date of review: March 11, 2014
In short: Great Race In full: Hats off to T.Wells Harriers, the race organisation is astonishing & if every race was this good we'd all be happy. I ran(ish) the very first TW HM, this was the 31st, Spring Hill hasn't got any easier, a tough run but very good overall, many thanks to enthusiastic marshals, public & the bands on the course for the encouragement.

In short: Great to see the younsters involved, cubs scouts and brownies. Fantastic weather and smooth course bar a few pot-holes from the dreadful wet winter and a few miles of rough surface. I was a race chair entry and was very pleased to get a pb. Date of review: March 11, 2014
In short: A great training run In full: This was my 2nd outing at Ashby and as it was only 4 weeks out from my Marathon so I used it as a training run. Going steady for the first 10 and racing the last 10. The weather made at extra special this year (unlike last year) and if was a relief to see water bottles at the water stations. Also if you were using High 5 gels then there was plentyful supply too. I'll be back next year and I may or may not race. Date of review: March 11, 2014
In short: Brilliant organisation by tempo ...course was a grueller In full: Really enjoyed this race was a warm up for London next month and got a PB to and was very pleased as this is probably the toughest course I've run with the all the hills etc lovely countryside travelled from burton-on-Trent for the race a lot of the locals were very vocal if you where in a local running club but the marshals were fab etc special mention to tempo ran a couple events now that tempo have done there organisation is spot on very friendly very informative to enjoyable day Date of review: March 11, 2014
