In short: Brilliant race with a lovely atmosphere In full: This is this the first time I've run the Purbeck 10K & what a great way to spend a glrious summer evening. Well organised, friendly marshalls, nice course & great pre/post race atmosphere. For the entry fee it was bargin including a very nice tee-shirt & an excellent goody bag! Well done Purbeck Runners.

In short: Great race with excellent organisation In full: Fourth time of running this which doesn't seem to get any easier! Thought the crowd support this year was amazing, organisation excellent & compared to other halfs very good value for money. A very nice tech t-shirt, medal & recovery drink included in the goody bag.I will be back next year for sure.
In short: Excellent well organised mass participation event In full: This was my third year of running this event and it just gets better each year. Regarding some of the negative comments about people being in the way of so called faster runners, what do you expect for such a large field, people to get out of the way for you? I saw a marshall remove someone from the yellow pen who had a red number & the organisers rely on people being realistic about there anticipated times. Rant over, this race has something for runners of every ability and I will be back again next year for sure. Date of review: May 9, 2013
In short: Well organised small half-marathon In full: I did this race as it was near to my parents who I was visiting at the weekend. Ideal for a relatively early start which then allowed time for mothers day lunch after 13 miles through glorious countryside where I grew up. I would do this race again, however I thought it a little on the expensive side for a goody bag which contained just jelly beans & a cheapish looking medal. That being said I enjoyed the run & appreciate that any proceeds are to go to charity so maybe I'm being a bit selfish here. Date of review: March 13, 2013
In short: Excellent well marshalled event & value for money. In full: This is the fourth year I've run this one and as usual very friendly marshalls and a nice medal to boot. My son did his first 10K with me & he enjoyed the encouragement from both the crowds & the chap who announced his name as he was entering the finishing straight. I'm sure both of us will be back again next year as 10k's don't get much better than this one. Date of review: July 10, 2012
In short: 3rd time for me and the race just gets better. Perfect weather and the marshals were very friendly. Great new improved medal and technical tee shirt to match. Will be back next year for sure, Date of review: June 25, 2012
