In short: Have not posted the results in nearly a month! £16 entry before they sting you with £3 parking and no goody bag. Wait a week and run the route fro free. In full: I have done this race a couple of times as it fits in with my training plans for a larger race in December - but never again.
The final results still have not been posted online more than a month after the race - and despite me coming fourth my name is missing from the provisional results. It's expensive at £16 for on-the-day entry (not including parking) and the participants receive nothing but a cheap medal - not even a cup of tea. Who knows what kind of profit Ultramarathon are making without actually doing any real work. They have ignored all my emails to them asking when the results will be published, showing complete disregard for the participants lining their pockets.
I would suggest avoiding this shambles at all costs. Date of review: November 25, 2013
In short: Best way to spend a Sunday morning In full: This is the second year I have done this race and it's a pleasure (plus an absolute bargain). Given how great the course is I wonder why there are not more similar races organised in this part of the Chilterns. We are moving away from the area but I might drive back next year just to do this race. Date of review: June 18, 2012
In short: Go steady at the start! In full: I live in Barton yet this is the firt time I have taken part in this race. The Chilterns are a fantastic challenge and there is enough variety on this course to test the most seasoned trail 10k runners. Don't go too fast up the first hill though or your legs won't take you the other 9K. Date of review: June 13, 2011
