In short: Big-Race event, awesome finish in the stadium In full: Well organised event, with many water and sport-drink stations en-route. Great medal and goody bag. Only the start area was a bit chaotic to get to your correct pen. Date of review: March 23, 2011
In short: A fantastic, fun event - where do I sign-up for 2011? In full: Great organisation, with lots of little touches that make this a very well organised and unique event. The skelton drummer band were superb, and the whole concept of night-running with head torches is so different. Date of review: November 3, 2010
In short: Superb atmosphere, big event-feel. The finish gives me goosebumps everytime!! In full: Reading was my first half-marathon in 1984 and it still gets my juices going! Great crowd support most of the way round.
I didn't take a beer from the Nags Head (about 7 miles) but my mate did - he always does!
Probably ran quicker than I was planning but that's what it's about on big events with the adrenalin, noise and support - loved it! Date of review: March 25, 2010
In short: A lovely run in the country, well marshalled, great value. In full: Even though this race is only 10 mins from my house, it's the first time I've taken part. What have I missed? A lovely country route, friendly marshalls (and there were plenty of them too) and a great technical t-shirt as the memento. Great value for this 10k, and I will be back in 2010. Thank you Tadley Runners. Date of review: July 5, 2009
In short: Great race, well organised, superb value for money! In full: The second time I have run this event (last was in 2005). Good crowd support, and a nice course. Amazing that you get a fantastic medal, a decent t-shirt and a full goody bag!!
In short: Too many organisational issues for an event that has been going for so long. In full: I've experienced delays of 10 or 15 mins on race starts, never an hour. For an event that has used the same course for many years, you would think they would have worked out what's good and what's not. Date of review: March 21, 2008
