In short: a very well-organised race and a great route In full: All this race at the edge of the Chilterns needs is a sunny day and a blue sky to make it a stand-out fixture on the racing calendar - today it had both.
Four hills spread the crowds out and if you can get through the first two the rest is a breeze.
Excellent marshalling kept the nutty drivers at bay and good crowds for support.
Top marks to the Rotary Club who organise this! Date of review: March 7, 2010
In short: lovely race in a lovely place - great atmosphere In full: Really enjoyed this - the two loops through the town square + the start and finish line arrangements make the crowd part of the course. The family had a great time too. Well done to the organisers. Date of review: December 28, 2009
In short: Tough but a great route through lovely countryside - it would be boring if it was too easy! In full: I love this race and the organisation gets better each year...well done to the Rotary club for putting it together.
It is a toughie--my lack of training and extra weight made every hill a struggle--but a picturesque run on a lovely spring day. Date of review: March 1, 2009
In short: Excellent-good organisation this year and a lovely course In full: Great course as ever. Thanks to the marshalls and police on a very miserable day. The organisation has improved with the size of the race following feedback from past years, so well done. Date of review: March 4, 2007
In short: A great course--a couple of hills but nothing drastic and a great field In full: The only gripe is the chip timing which was a bit rubbish. They somehow managed to add about 1min to my time, well at odds with my stopwatch (which I didn't even manage to stop on time at the end!).
