In short: Watch out for the big hill twice!!! In full: Back for the second year to do this and the course had been changed back to normal. A lot harder than the 1st time with the steep hill being done twice! Mike and the team have the organisation down to a tee and the marshalls were very helpful and full of encouragement.

In short: A quick half hour suitable for any level In full: This was my 1st 5k and knowing Winchester well I got to see some things I never had before. A good mix of club and general runners and the atmosphere was good despite the downpour.
I recommend this to a beginner as it is flat and quite nice as you run through the cathedral grounds.
The start could have been a bit better organized but on a street that was still open to traffic was understandable Date of review: July 17, 2009
In short: A good first 10 miler to do bit disappointed about being at the back In full: This was my first 10 mile race and enjoyed the experience BUT being a "beginner" i was allocated Green wave C and spent the whole race dodging slower runners and even passing White and Orange numbers on my way round. I stated i was aiming to run it in 90 minutes but i don't think they took any notice of that and my time of 94 minutes would have been a lot faster had i been in a higher grouping.
Did really enjoy the race and a fast course convinced me to come back and do it again at a faster time! Date of review: October 28, 2008
