In short: Great race and V well organised. In full: Tadley is always well organsied and has a lovely feel to the race. Thanks god it was a bit cooler than last week and has a bit more shade on the way around. Also very good to have two water stations. I knew about the hill and it almost seemed easier this year. I managed a PB by 25 secs but I have been working hard for it but pleased it came at this race. Great T-shirt- technical and all for less than £10....bargin. Thanks Tadley, see you next year.

In short: Good race as normal, thanks to the organisers In full: I again enjoyed the Thame race and like the slight course improvements. As with everybody else, I had a bit of a tough time with the heat as the course is very open. I did not get any water as the two guys were busy trying to fill up cups and also serve, this really needs to be looked at as I am sure they could have found a couple more people to help.
The marshals were great as always and it was good to see Pom Pom lady again! Cheers Date of review: June 28, 2009
In short: Fantastic as always In full: This is one of my fav races in the year. You cannot ask for better on a 10k course. Lots of water if needed and great support from the Marshals all the way around. The hill at 3k to 4 k always make me puff a bit but you do get it back on the second half.

In short: Lovely Day out, one to enjoy and forget PB's In full: I knew this race had the stile and kissing gates and so just turned up to run ob a lovely sunny day. I loved the open fields and running by the river. Got chatting to a couple of others who were also just enjoying the day. Very British queue at the stile, anybody trying to push in got jeered, very funny. Hopefully it's nice weather next year as I will be topping up my tan again. Cheers Date of review: June 1, 2009
In short: Fantastic race, I am sure the weather helped. In full: I came down from Reading and stayed with the in-laws. Had a great time and everybody was very friendly. Love this part of the country and it always looks better with a bit of sunshine.
I will plan to do it again next year. Thanks to the organisers for a great day. Date of review: November 16, 2008
In short: Third Year and love it In full: I love this race. I have done lots of 10k's and very few have no problems at all. The gate at the start is a bit to soon as it bottle necks but I am sure it will be changed for next year. The shorter hill at the end is a great plus. As for the goody bag, I must have been one of the only ones who thought it was great. The fan and torch are useful. It helps that I have a 10 year old lad who will love these little gadgets.
In short: Hot but good fun in the sun! In full: This is my third year running and got a PB for this event. It was hot and hilly, 3k to 4k is a killer. I had a Garmin and agree that the longer loop through the houses added a bit to the course and I agree with the other mail that we did not do the long loop last time. I think it added about 150-200 yards which is not that bad.
Great fun and will be back next year. Date of review: June 10, 2007
In short: Great Race, good fun with lots of good support all the way around. In full: Nice that the sun came out as I had my girlfriend and Son with me and it made it nice to watch. Good day out in London to follow. The race was very well organised and a nice group of runners. Date of review: January 1, 2007
In short: Great Race in the sun In full: Great Race, a bit to hot for a PB. Most of the 10K's this year have been very hot but all good training. Good Marshals especialy the one at the top of "the hill". After I said how hard it was he said the next one was bigger...very funny. ( He did tell me he was joking). Thanks to Tadley for a good race.
