In short: Recommended by a friend and it was very good In full: Fantastic organisation and I thank all volunteers involved. Lovely scenic route with lots of encouragement all the way. The organisers have done a lot of work to make this a traffic free route and there were marshals everywhere helping out and encouraging people on. Great pre-race village on the green at the start with lots of stalls and a happy atmosphere with runners, supporters all enjoying the day.
In short: Uplifting hidden Gem In full: Great varied course with two tough hills and thankfully some nice navigable downhills through the woods.

In short: Great feel good run In full: Very enjoyable event with a few miles of nice flat tow paths to get you going before the climb and off road bit. Back down to the canal for the final 3 miles where you can pick up a regular pace again. Something different and will be back next year. Hopefully there will be more similar events as this is a winner and sold out again. Thanks to the organisers and helpers. The numerous signs for directions plus warnings of roots and normal canal type hazards was a nice touch. Thank you. Date of review: November 20, 2011
