I've entered this for the first time this year and very much looking forward to it. Anticipating a good well organised small race. Has anyone got any comments to make on it?

i've run both the 10k and half, well organised race with plenty of marshalls.

Thanks, I was hoping that would be the case. Now all I need is one of those lovely crisp sunny October mornings.......

Thats where I parked as well. Gets very busy and congested in and around sports centre. 

Still haven't got round to entering. Should really get my act together.

I've run it once, and recall that it was just about as flat as it could be. A tiny rise into the village for the final half mile. The finish was on a field, so kind of awkward if you are pushing a full grown Phil in his chair and your name is Mick.

I'm glad that it was nice last year, it was one of the wettest races I recalled.

I wonder if I could enter on the day?

not sure if you can enter on day, but I know someone upgraded from 10k to half marathon last year.

The event website says "entries on the day will not be allowed". I am running the 10K and will be Race Referee for the Half Marathon.

Today, - After a real bad night, and after almost not going at all, due to getting up an hour later than planned - we made our way to Cricklade nr Swindon - for their annual HM,....

a 10k, and HM incorporated, its what i call a small low key small town event actual fact as we found out many years ago, and today proved the same - it is simply a fantastic event, ... in my opinion in every way possible...

we went around steady, i did walk the odd bits, suffering bady from indigestion, and finshed in a nice 2:20 - but then we never intended much else, - ...

previously when we ran it many years ago we clocked just under 2 hours - that was fine then, but i had little intentions of anything like that today - we were just going to enjoy the fabulas countryside etc...

The whole event and out on the course was just fabulas...

our 251st HM ?? umm what ever, quite happy
