In short: fantastic race, well organised and good pb course! In full: Brilliant race, lovely country roads, fantastic marshalls who were absolute heros in that cold! Well organised, loved the chocolate in the goody bag. Our club loved the race and we'll be spreading the word for next year! Date of review: January 20, 2013
In short: Great race for club runners and beginners! In full: fantastic race around gorgeous trails! Ideal for both club runners and first timers, lovely friendly marshalls, nice atmosphere, downhill finish and pasties at the end! Would definately do it again! Date of review: April 3, 2012
In short: great potential for a brilliant course! In full: A fantastic course, really interesting and great idea to have a 10K and 5K loops! Good start and finish area and pie and pint was a nice touch. I have a few constructive criticisms but this shouldn't detract from this race, totally appreciate this was the first time this was organised and the course was so nice I think it could turn into a really popular event with a few tweeks! My tips for next time would be: - you need a clear finish line, runners were unclear when to stop running - people at the end acknowledging runners coming in. It's hard work running a 5K and 10K and a few claps from marshalls at the finish line makes all the difference - a small token for winners? Even if it's just 1st man, 1st lady back? - water station at the finish - the course markings were good and clear but just needed maybe 1 or 2 extra ones, I got lost in the big field cos the ribbons had blown off!
Well done to the organisers though! Great start! Date of review: June 27, 2011
In short: Great race - definately coming back next year! In full: Did this race for the first time yesterday. Was excellent. Is flat, flat, flat, virtually traffic free, loads of friendly marshalls, brilliant organisation, toilets, parking.
A lovely atmosphere and a great mix of abilities - from 5min milers to 13 min milers...a great first race if you're feeling nervous!
Well done organisers! Date of review: October 18, 2010
In short: great, friendly race! In full: I'm a slower runner (11min miles) and this was perfect race for me, loads of friendly marshalls, big turn out which means I'm not left running on my own, water half way round, good clear finish to give you a buzz and LOVED the towel and flowers to finish! Would definately do it again! Date of review: August 23, 2010
In short: fantasic, friendly, trail race In full: This is a great race, lots of club runners but also nice, friendly atmosphere and great marshalls to cheer you round if you're a slower/beginner runner. Lovely course on trails. Date of review: April 12, 2010
