In short: Fast, practically flat along country lanes. My favourite half. In full: Yet again I leave Wokingham happy with a PB. It's a fast course, with only a few mild undulations. Run on traffic-free country lanes surrounding farmland, it's either reasonably scenic if you like that sort of thing, or very dull if you don't. Notorious for suffering whatever weather mother nature throws at the runners today it was a steady rain. Apart from giving parts of the course a few puddles it wasn't much trouble, and certainly helped to cool me down. Anything is better than last years arctic wind tunnel in the final mile though.
A few gripes remain, the start is congested (perhaps we could do the Cantley loop the other way round?), and the ground near the baggage tent was very muddy. Otherwise a superb, well-marshalled race which I will be back for every year if possible. Date of review: February 13, 2006
In short: great day out in brilliant scenery. In full: well organised, well marshalled and some glorious views. the hill is a bit of a drag, but coming down it is quite fun and to be honest without the hill it wouldn't be such an interesting race.
no problems for me with toilets, I found loads inside the rugby club changing rooms - no queue at all - maybe people need to explore more! good 'chocolate money' medal as well! Date of review: October 9, 2005
