In short: Lovely Basingsingstoke In full: That was hillier than I thought it was going to be. It was my first time in Basingstoke, and what great people they are. Incredible support from the local Basingstokers was really uplifting. Thanks for all the Jelly babies and hosepipes. Date of review: October 9, 2013
In short: Great local Race through the Lanes In full: Great local race though the picturesque lanes of Essex, great organization an marshaling. It's beginner friendly, but also plenty of company for the fastees with lots of local clubs running. Date of review: September 25, 2013
In short: Fantastic run in beautiful Coed and Brenin In full: The course is a privilege to run. It goes through the beautiful mountains and forests of Coed and Brenon. It takes you through on the trails, mostly, with a few techinical sections through the trees. The organisation and running of the event is superb; the communication, timings, course, plentiful feed stations and masses of signage - all through the run I was 100% confident I was on course. I'll be back next year. Date of review: June 23, 2012
In short: A beautful and excellently organized event In full: An incredibly well organised event by Bedford Harriers. The generally up first half and down second half gave me a very flattering negative split. The course was slightly long. Very enjoyable and I will be back next year. Date of review: December 16, 2010

In short: The hardest 15 miles I've ever done In full: The toughest 15 miles I've ever run. This is an enjoyable, challenging race full of hills and mud. Epping forest in incredibly beautiful to run through, and was excellently marshalled by Orion. Running this gives me a lot of confidence ahead of my first marathon next month.

In short: Great fun in the mud In full: Mud and water and falls. The real medieval mud is only for about 4-5km, but what a 4-5km! Clay mud sucking at you shoes, covering them with nice slippery clay, - great fun. Nice scenery to run through and the final 10k you can push for home.
