In short: Quite possibly the quickest half marathon in the country In full: I didn't get a PB but that's not the course's fault. This has to be THE quickest in the UK. It is lightening. As for the organisation and general feel of the race, just absolutely first class. Can't think of a better organised race. Well done to the organisers and thank you to all the volunteers that made the race possible. Date of review: May 4, 2014
In short: One of the best races in the country In full: Everything is jsut so incredibly well put together. From the information packs, the course, the water stations, the brilliant marshalls, the announcer, the prizes. A massive well done to TRAC. An excellent example of how it should be done. Brilliant.

In short: An absolutely brilliant event. In full: I ran the Kent Costal Marathon as a training run in the build up to Abingdon marathon and I have to say it was a great race. I shall definitely be returning next year (hopefully to help to retain 1st team prize).
The whole thing went like clockwork. Yes there was a slight delay but this was to ensure everyone was correctly registered and had picked up their numbers.
The marshalls were incredibly supportive and the marshall on the bike that was riding back to Margate moving pedestirans out the way for me was brilliant!
Great goody bag, lovely t shirt, nice medal great prizes.
A wonderful day out. Date of review: September 8, 2010
In short: I had a mare but Bungay BD running club certainly didnt! In full: This was my third marathon and I have to say although it's very low key it was absoutely brilliantly run. Everything worked like clockwork, except my legs at mile 23! The support was great from the marshalls and the course very pretty but challenging.
I will definitely do this race in the future, but not until I've got London & Boston out of my system. Date of review: April 21, 2010
In short: I hate 10ks but this one is brilliant. Not the fastest but the best by a long way. In full: Awesome race. Nothing more can describe it closer. Incredibly challenging but you leave with the best runner's high ever.
Thank you once again Petts Wood Runners. Date of review: October 11, 2009
In short: Excellent In full: Colin, thank you for rating your own race!
The fact that you're not a running club and were doing this for the first time I was amazed at how well you did. I came along not expecting much but left thinking that the race was brilliant. Sure a couple of teething problems but none that were huge cause for concern or put anyone in danger which is the most important thing.
You should be very proud of what you put on, I hope the funds raised made it worthwhile and you will consider doing the same next year. I for one will be in!
In short: Tough, but very friendly and excellent marshalling. In full: Some nasty undulations, but overall a very nice race. The marshalling was superb and very supportive. Thanks to the organisers. Date of review: July 19, 2009
