In short: Not sure why but had the most fun running this that I've had in ages In full: The organisation was miles better this year with the loop at the start sorted out. Great support from the marshalls and locals alike. Love the cannon and a great course for a pb as its nice and flat with space for a decent sprint finish. Date of review: September 16, 2012
In short: Soooooo hot. Well organised, good atmosphere. In full: Slowest half in about 5 years due to the heat. The course is very scenic with many undulations that give the course a bit more difficulty. Date of review: August 20, 2012
In short: Quick course with PB potential, well organised. Shame no medal. In full: Good atmosphere, well organised. My wife ran this as her first 10k and did herself proud. A good course with a few inclines to challenge you between 6k and 7k with a nice downhill towards the end. Date of review: August 13, 2012
In short: Excellent organisation, great atmosphere and commentator, tough course. In full: Ran this for the first time in 2007 and have been back every year. Its a tough course with a good hill at the beginning. The commentator always raises a smile and the atmosphere is great. One of the best value for money races out there with an awesome goody bag to all finishers. The medal is also top notch! Great race, will defintely be back next year. Date of review: July 16, 2012
In short: Well organised race on a fairly undulating course. In full: Will be back next year again but would like a little more than a cup to remember it by. Interesting scenic course with some good inclines to keep you on your toes. Date of review: July 12, 2012
In short: Beautiful course, loved the pigs. Good atmosphere too! In full: A couple of inclines that make you think twice but a stunning course with lots of varied terrain (including a short stretch through a pig farm with pigs spectating). Well organised and a good atmoshere with a good mix of running ability. Will be back next year. Date of review: June 10, 2012
In short: Great course, organisation was spot on, highly recommended In full: The organisation was excellent. My friend ran this as her first 10k and really enjoyed it. Excellent course through the out skirts of Marlow. Good medal and mars bar to all finishers too, all for a good price. I will Definitely do this again and recommend it to all.

In short: OK Race, poor weather, anticlimactic finish In full: Due to flooding I had to find an alternative cark park and leave my bag in my car. There was a 10 minute walk to the start. The race was ok but the long inclines towards the end were draining but the supporters and marshalls who braved the weather did well and the encouragement at the end was much appreciated. The stadium finish with no finish line was poor. The goody bag was pointless and got soaked in the rain but the medal is a goodun. The runners needed silver blankets in those conditions and they were no where to be seen. MK could learn a few things from the likes of Reading.
In short: Fast course, good atmosphere and the stadium finish is awesome In full: For a large race the organisation was excellent, the crowds in Reading were great and the course was very quick despite crowding at the start. Good for a pb.
In short: A fast first 11 miles down carriage ways with a slight incline for the last mile In full: The rain, snow and last mile made this a hard run. The race was well organised but the end of the course could have been better, having to side step around a tight gap in the fence to get to the finish line made the sprint finish hard. Good for a pb but save something for the end. Date of review: March 5, 2012
