In short: Tough and enjoyable with excellent support In full: This is a lovely race through beautiful countryside with plenty of tough and challenging sections to get your heart pumping! The support from the marshalls was excellent and the atmosphere was super with lots of drinks/food at the end. I would definitely do this again. Thanks :) Date of review: June 20, 2011
In short: Nice, run through a pretty park in Coventry, away from the traffic In full: Very well organised race through a nice park, so on tarmac but away from traffic which is great. Really enjoyed this one, and the prizes for the leading ladies and gents are very generous. Majority running were club runners though some unattached runners too. I would do this race again for sure.

In short: Fast, mostly flat course with great atmosphere In full: This was the first time I have run this race and I was suitably impressed! The organisation was spot on, the marshalls excellent, a flat course with one not so nice uphill so good for pbs, and of course the welcome glass of cider at the finishing line! Lovely race with nice scenery and friendly organisation, I will look forward to doing this again next year. Thanks. Date of review: July 13, 2010
In short: Flat, rural course with excellent marshalling but not enough toilets! In full: This is a good course, flat and fast as advertised. However, there were not enough toilets and having to queue on arrival to get chips seemed silly rather than sending them out in the post.
The marshalling on the course was superb, well laid out and friendly supportive marshalls. However, there were a lot of people bunched up at the finishing line which may need to be improved.
It's not cheap to enter but you do get a medal, T shirt and fruit at the end which was nice. Overall, a good race with only some minor downsides. Date of review: March 15, 2010
In short: Friendly race with beautiful scenery In full: This race was wonderfully organised, very well marshalled and was for a good cause. There were some tough climbs and scary descents but also plenty of grassy tracks and well surfaced pathways. All in all a great race that I would definitely do again! Date of review: August 24, 2009
In short: Very friendly & well organised race round country lanes In full: The organisation was wonderful and exceptionally friendly. The route was signposted with no chance of going wrong. A larger field of runners would make it more beginner friendly I suppose but apart from that it was a really nice day out that I thoroughly enjoyed. Many thanks to the wonderful people who were organising :) Date of review: April 20, 2009
In short: Very well organised, fun and muddy! In full: First time I have done this race and really enjoyed it. It was extremely well organised and marshalled. The boggy mud wasn't much fun but it wasn't too hilly, there was a good mix of terrain and the atmosphere was great. Date of review: March 31, 2008
In short: Tough course, lovely scenery, would run again :) In full: First time I have done this race so can't comment on previous years problems. I thought it was well marshalled and marked out, there was nowhere that I was unsure where to go. Some of the hills were reall toughies but I really enjoyed the race and the scenery was great. Thanks to the organisers, I'm sure it's not an easy task! Date of review: March 12, 2008
In short: Fast course, nice scenery, dodgy km markers, would do again! In full: The km markers cannot have been right, especially near the start, but apart from that is was a really good race. Only my 2nd 10km race, I really enhoyed it. Virtually flat the whole way around made it good for pbs and there was good marshalling and ambulance people on standby. I would definitely do this race again :) Date of review: March 12, 2007
