In short: Tadley 10k - simple, yet effective In full: A very well organised event, with a friendly mix of club runners, improvers and first-timers. The course is playful and certainly undulates with the bump at 8k a "nice" surprise for tired legs.
My second year on this course and I took nearly four minutes of my PB! Date of review: July 5, 2010
In short: High times on the Downs In full: A superbly organised, welcoming event, before, during and after. Everything you could want or need from an event and then there is the race itself. Date of review: June 21, 2010
In short: Maidenhead delivers an Easter delight In full: A very decent 10 mile race with just the one hill / long slow drag to speak of. My only 'grumble' was that I hated the pavement section which became almost single file with passing on the grass although I understand the need for it.
The organisation, marshalls, volunteers and supporters should be commended. The parking, facilities and pre-race banquet - if you were in need of teas, hot cross buns, sausage sandwiches - were without fault.
Maidenhead, like lots of local clubs, shows some of the big showcase events how it should be done. Date of review: April 2, 2010
