In short: Terrific race In full: Everything about this race was so well organised, from the excellent army cadets directing cars into the car park to the cheerful marshalls (I counted three at each road crossing). The countryside was beautiful, with thatched cottages and quiet country lanes. The runners were a mixture of club runners and fun runners so there was a wonderful atmosphere. And then the medal, the hot cross bun and the pot of honey at the end with a cup of tea from the village hall. Why run the Reading 1/2 when there are races like this around?

In short: Awful! In full: Not one I would run again. Uninspiring 4 laps. Dull route. There are so many excellent 20 miler training runs at this time of the year and this isn't one of them. Date of review: March 13, 2006
In short: Glorious! Well done Thanet Roadrunners! In full: Beautiful day running along by the sea (avoiding the pensioners).
Thanks to the marshalls particularly the ones looking after our cars in the car park - much appreciated.
A really scenic route going out along the cliffs and harbour, through a port with boats bobbing about and into the town. Great goody bag and very organised finish. Well done Thanet! Date of review: March 6, 2006
In short: I had a cracking hangover running this but even the marshalls managed to make me smile! In full: The marshalls must have been the jolliest lot I have ever come across and it was freezing! Nice and flat and scenic (with woods and trees and cycle paths) very pleasant if you haven't got a cracking hangover. Date of review: January 24, 2006
In short: My favourite race In full: This is my all time favourite race. Lovely scenery, nice cup of tea in the club beforehand and a chance to read the Sunday papers. It's a really friendly and relaxed race and I got a PB!
...and don't you just love that final 1 mile to the finish; downhill all the way.
Thanks to the marshalls [and the police] and the band, for making this a truly memorable race.
In short: Fantastic In full: This race took you from the playing fields of Harrow School up the hill to Harrow School itself. It was a glorious day and a fabulous race. Well organised, friendly marshalls and a friendly atmosphere. Well done.
In short: Where were the marshalls? In full: Someone forgot to put a marshall near the monument and a large group of us were directed by one of the first aiders in the wrong direction so we ended up running down a main road (not very safe)
..and if you are going to use children as marshalls, could you instruct them to direct and not to just to stand there?
This was a poorly organised and unsafe race Date of review: June 5, 2005
