In short: Enjoyed it. Friendly marshals & plenty of water. In full: Arrived an hour before the start and had no problems parking. If people had problems parking it may have been due to turning up just before the start - maybe the efficient car park attendants had to be elsewhere for the race. Start pens would be good. It's not great having someone next to me joking how everyone would probably overtake him. And the other major improvement would be to ban the use of headphones. Don't people realise how selfish they are being when unaware of other runners, especially on narrow routes? But a good race - thanks. Date of review: March 8, 2009
In short: Another excellent race hosted by Stroud In full: Great race again. Thanks to the organisers, supporters, marshalls, police & many others. Just missed a pb, but still enjoyed it. Date of review: October 26, 2008
In short: Well organised, top marshalls!!! In full: Hot, hilly, great course, but challenging in the heat. By mile 3 I had abandoned all hopes of a pb, but the marshalls and water station crew got me round. Big thanks to the hose-man. Buy that man a pint! Date of review: July 28, 2008
In short: Great fun - good to test yourself over one mile In full: Great fun and well organised by Bourton Road Runners. Thanks also for quick return of my last minute entry. Date of review: July 21, 2008
In short: Gets better & better In full: Another well organised race with great atmosphere. Cooler weather than previous years which helped as there are a few climbs. For a town without its own running club Fairford puts on a great race!! Date of review: June 4, 2008
In short: One of my all time favourite races In full: Having run it for the first time in 2007 I was looking forward to this and was not disappointed. Thank you to all concerned especially the cadets, marshalls and supporters. My only concern last year had been the confused finish area where non runners and runners were not separated. The fencing/funnel addressed that this year so thank you. Bring it on again! Date of review: March 17, 2008
In short: Excellent again In full: Bourton does it again. The place, the people & the atmosphere were all fantastic. I commented last year that the finish line was not very clear - no worries this year, so thankyou. And I smashed last year's time! Date of review: February 28, 2008
In short: Another excellent race from the organisers In full: Back again for an attempt on my pb at this great race. The start and finish were well organised and I'm glad last year's amendment to the route has remained. I agree with the comments on the toilet facilities, otherwise no grumbles, loads of praise. Missed a pb though!
