In short: Great way to start the year In full: Many thanks to Dr. Rob and all the marshalls and helpers for standing around for several hours in atrocious weather to put this event on. The atmosphere was excellent as always, despite the conditions. Most of the runners ended up running a short course, due to a sign blowing down, but no-one seemed to mind too much...
I'll be back again next year. Looking forward to the "bonus hill". Date of review: January 3, 2014
In short: First class organisation make this a very special race In full: tzruns have put a lot of thought and effort into organising this event, and the result is a very special race. A great venue, superb organisation and communication - before, during and after the race - and a host of little extra touches (or not so little, in the case of the medal...) make this marathon stand out from the competition. Definitely a highlight of the year for me. Date of review: June 7, 2013
In short: Lovely scenic race on quiet country roads. In full: First time running this, and I'll definitely be back! A very friendly race, relaxed but well-organised, with a lovely scenic course on quiet country roads. Date of review: May 17, 2013
In short: Very friendly, well-organised race - but hard! In full: This is my third year running Pensford and I'll definitely be back next year. It's probably (no make that definitely) the hardest 10K that I've done, but well worth the effort. I've given it high marks for beginner-friendliness, despite the hills, because of the excellent atmosphere and organisation (and the really nice home-made cakes afterwards). Highly recommended.
