In short: Nice scenic 4 mile run, combined with a friendly atmosphere, plus a great first timers race! In full: Nice scenic 4 mile run, combined with a friendly atmosphere, plus a great first timers race! As this was the first Edingthorpe 4 mile run, I entered it. The back lanes were very quiet and I only so the one car which was good. The whole event was well organised with refreshments at the other end. However, my only disappointment was to receive a pen for finishing rather than a medal as mentioned on the online entry page on this website. Date of review: May 23, 2010
In short: Excellent atmosphere, organization and marshals. In full: Excellent atmosphere, organization and marshals. This race is fast becoming part of my annual fixture list as a result of the above. Richard Polley and crew, have nailed an excellent race, which seems to attract more and more runners each year. All marshalls provide encouragement and as always an excellent goody bag to finish with, plus a choice of fresh fruit. Well done to all concerned. Date of review: April 4, 2010
In short: Well organised, excellent marshalls, great warm up for marathon. In full: A well organised race, excellent scenic course and a nice warm up for the marathon. The marshalls gave excellent support. My only slight negative, as per another reviewer, that a medal rather than a hat would be a nice gesture after 20 miles and the entrance fee warranted slightly more than what the goody back had to offer.

In short: Great run and possible PB. But at Â£17.50 entrance fee a little steep? In full: Apart from the adverse weather conditions, hail, snow, sleet and rain. This is a great course through lovely countryside and a possible PB. However, limited car parking and Â£17.50 entrance fee did stop me from rating this higher. A good medal for those who completed the 20K, but the rest of the goody bag, apart from the beer, was flyers which went into the recycle bin! Date of review: February 22, 2010
In short: A Great Fun Run especially for the first time racer In full: This is a great fun run and if you are expecting to gain a PB then you are in for a shock. Great atmosphere, goody back and a course which packs in cross country, trail, road and grass. An excellent race for the first timer, as they will feel very at ease given the atmosphere which is created by Norfolk Gazelles. Date of review: December 24, 2009
In full: Second raced I have run this year which has been organised by City Of Norwich Athlectics Club. Again, superb marshalls, all offering encouragement, packed goody bag (drinks, crisps, fruiy and bars, and medal is of genuine quality. Two hills make it a challenge, but on the whole a fast course. I gained a PB, so well chuffed. Excellent value for money. Date of review: June 6, 2009
In full: What a well organised race. Great idea for the parking to be away from where people are running. Far too often, I've seen competitors try and leave the car park of the venue as runners are still finishing. Excellent medal - nice to see a date and again an excellent goody bag. Very well marshalled and all had words of encouragement to say. I've been running for the last 18 months and this has been the best race of the lot - even though my time was not so good! Please pass on my congratulations to all involved.
