In short: A good mid-week event In full: Plenty of free parking. Good and challenging route with a fast finish. Never been given a key ring before as a memento. Worth turning up for. Thanks Bracknell Forest Runners. Well done. I`ll be back again. Date of review: June 18, 2010
In short: On the money again In full: A good mid-week event & a part of a series of three events. Excellent organising. Helpful marshalls with two water & sponge stops along the way. For a lumpy course it is surprising quick - maybe that is something you learn after your first run. Well done Sandhurst. Date of review: June 5, 2010
In short: Struggling to find fault so I won`t In full: A great event - a big event. Great assembley area, wonderful flat course with plently of support along the way. Huge goodie bag (tech top and medal plus nick knacks - maybe a choice of sizes on the T-shirts would be good). Excellent day. Thanks to all the marshals along the way. Well done - great event. I`ll be back next year. Date of review: June 3, 2010
In short: Tough Challenge but SO worth it In full: An excellent event. Tough but scenic course with a couple of energy sapping short sharp hills, but the feeling afterwards makes it all worth while. Cheerful marshals, at key points & water stations (& hose station). With chip finish too. Excellent High Tech T-Shirt for the special 25th anniversary was a real treat - thanks. A must of an event for amyone. A real find of an event. Thanks DMVAC, and thanks to the RD (Sheena) & her team for all their hard work - see you next year. Date of review: May 25, 2010
In short: Spot on - could not be faulted In full: A nice event on a traffic free event. Plently of parking, good HQ with baggage drop & cafe. One or two laps of the pancake lap reservoir with runners of all abilities. Luckly with the weather so enjoyed the 360 views. Good to have your name read out when you came through the finish. Nice event Purple Patch - well done. Date of review: May 23, 2010
In short: Top event. In full: I really do like this event. Great organisation, huge numbers of marshals along the mixed (town & countryside) course. Right number of water stations. The course itself has a few lumps in it but nothing too serious. I thought the safety car driving along the main road to slow the traffic down was a wonderful touch - thanks. A nice village fete feel. Results up quickly too. Thanks Hook, see you next year. Well done. Date of review: May 17, 2010
In short: Last year was NOT a fluke - it really is a cracking event. In full: So far it`s the race of the year - I don`t why but I really do like this one. Easy to get to, loads of parking, good starting area. Generally flat for the first 5 miles, then becomes more of a challenge but despite that and the twists & turns it`s still a fast course. Massive amount of support where needed - water & sponge stops. Great finishing area. Super goodie bag. Well done Bracknell for putting on another great event. A must for next year.
In short: It`s London - everything you have heard is true..except for streets lined with gold. In full: It`s packed both on & off the course. The support you get along the course is just simply truely amazing. Made the mistake of trying to race the people`s marathon rather than saviouring every footstep along the wonderful course. Hopefully I`ll be back if not running it then supporting it one way or another. Well done London. Date of review: May 3, 2010
In short: An excellent event for a good cause. In full: Great local event. Smallish but still with some nice touches. Not the flatish of courses, challenging but enjoyable all the same. Good support at the finish. Nice fun run beforehand. All for a good cause.
