In short: Still my favourite 10k In full: I always finish this race with a big smile on my face and feeling good, no matter if I've got a good time or bad, and this year was no exception. Love the friendly atmosphere and the cakes at the end. Well done Bearbrook. As a regular back marker you always make the slow people feel just as valued as the fast ones. Thank you and see you again next year. Sub 60 or bust next time! Date of review: August 8, 2010
In short: Well organised, great atmosphere. In full: Goodie bag much better this year and getting T shirt at the end made more sense. As usual, water stations managed really well (congrats to the cadets) and great marshalls. I'll be back. Date of review: September 6, 2009
In short: Good as always. Well worth doing In full: Fantastic race, well marshalled and caters for all levels. With bacon butties and cakes at the finish plus a good momento what more can you want? Thank you Bearbrook Joggers. Date of review: August 9, 2009
In short: Biscuits at the end - what more can I say? In full: This race always seems to attract a really socialble group of runners and is very friendly at the back of the field. We all motivated each other on and I finished in a better time than I'd predicted, so thanks to everyone.
I'll be back next year. Date of review: February 15, 2009
In short: Fantastic! In full: Need more loos at the start and clearer time zones rather than just colours but otherwise a really enjoyable run. Expensive but worth the money and so many free samples given away plus a fab t-shirt. Crowd support a bit thin in places and a few too many twists and turns in the park but a great route on the whole. Well worth doing. I'll be back next year. Date of review: October 12, 2008
In short: Bearbrook Joggers have done it again - a great race! In full: This is the 4th time of running this race and enjoyed it again this year just as much as previouly. I'm a slow plodder but the marshalls are so encouraging I feel like I'm an elite. Ita a good interesting course too and the refreshments at the start/finish are great value. Thanks Bearbrook, I'll be back next year. Date of review: August 10, 2008
In short: Disappointing this year In full: I've been looking forward to this for weeks but it just didnt have the edge that it used to have somehow and the atmosphere was lacking in places. I finished in 2.30 which is slow but not that slow for a large field of runners and no lucozade, no jelly babies, no goody bag and from the sounds of it lucky to have a medal. No excuse for this with the price that you pay. The unofficial beer stop was nice to see though. Not sure if I'll do it again. Date of review: March 2, 2008
