In short: Fast & Flat. Great Organisation. In full: Have than this race twice gained a PB both times. Great marshals, track finish is great but the little weave around the park before hand is a little unwelcome - more of a gripe than a moan. Good feed stations this year - chocolate most welcome. Can I PB next time - back next year to find out. Date of review: November 15, 2011
In short: Faultless - highly recommended In full: Excellent organisation, facilities , course , marshals - the complete package and got a PB. Will be back - 5*'s from me. Thank you to all involved and whoever books the weather Date of review: October 18, 2009
In short: 4th time in 6 years and the event gets better and better, In full: Some negative feedback here about the entrance fee, but if that buys you a race run like clockwork, with an organisation committee that appears to take all feedback, its WELL worth it. With bottled water, isontonic drinks, great medal, well marshalled, plenty of loos, good parking and an early morning start ( was 12:30 a few years ago), i have to say i found it floorless. Congratulations to everybody concerned, thank you for a great event - I will be booking early for next year as I am sure this will fill even quicker than last year.
In short: faultless organisation, well marshalled, will be back next year, fingers crossed for better weather ! In full: Organistaion ran like clockwork and keeps getting better - even no queue for the loos. Good facilities a the start / finish, fantastic pre spring marathon warm. Big thank you to the marshalls for braving the wind and rain. No hesitation i'll be back for my fourth time next year, hopefully with better conditions. Date of review: March 16, 2008

In short: What an underated event, clockwork organisation, good course great format In full: This was my 14th and one of the most enjoyable. The organisation could not be faulted, plent of parking and race started on the dot. A HUGE thank you to the marshalls, I would not let my family stand out in the weather they had too. Loved the three lap format - for me anyway easier on the brain than the legs. The relay always make sure there's people around you. T-Shirt and a medal and a smile when you finished. I'll be back Date of review: December 2, 2007
In short: Wow - you have to do this at least once In full: Hugely enjoyable race and can only echo all the previous reviews. Loved the Saturday date, great organisation and they did themselves proud in thier 25th year. Nothing could have prepared me for the hill - up and down at 21 through 25 - could not believe how relived i was to be going downhill at last only to find that my legs would not work to carry me down. Just a very very minor grumble - would have liked a medal instead of the coaster. Date of review: October 29, 2007
In short: As many have said great pre-marthaon race - superb organisation - only race other than london i've been to that has started on the dot. In full: Not the flatest of courses but found everything about the race and orgainsation faultless. Great marshalls, plentiful water stations - will be back next year for the third time. Thank you Bedford Harriers. Date of review: April 1, 2007
