In short: Challenging Race Through Stunningly Pretty Countryside In full: As always a thoroughly enjoyable day out. Very friendly atmosphere and superb organisation. Marshals all smiled and cheered runners on. Fantastic course with some very steep climbs and descents through wonderful countryside. Prepare well for it especially if you're used to fairly flat road half and marathons. Don't forget the hill work! Date of review: June 29, 2015
In short: A must race in your calendar In full: Fantastic day out in the warm sunshine over a some very undulating terrain. Train hard for the hills (especially the steep downhill sections!). Stunning scenery. A very well organised, super friendly club run event that puts a lot of larger events to shame. Cakes at the end were magnificent. Huge thanks to everyone involved in putting it on. Be back next year for sure! Date of review: June 23, 2014
In short: Of all the runs I've done round the world, one of the friendliest. In full: Wonderful enthusiasm from the marshals and organisers. OK there's small things which could be improved on but that didn't spoil a very enjoyable race which had a very pleasant old skool feel unlike some of the big races these days which are a scrum. Great atmosphere and really nice touch to provide a small lunch in the goodie bag. Support fantastic. Laps made it a very different 1/2 m to run and on a cooler / less breezy day it has pb potential (earlier start time would be better but I guess this is governed by when the changing facilities at hackney marshes open).
Well done all at ufdance and their volunteers! Date of review: August 23, 2009
In short: Very friendly atmosphere, location and well organised 10k. Well worth put through a washing machine for. In full: Well worth the entry fee for such a well orgnaised and friendly race. Course has pb potential and is scenic. IF the monsoons stay away it would be a wonderful family day out. Such a shame about the weather for the village but nevertheless, organisers and residents should take huge pride in what they put on every year. Many thanks to you all and will be back next year for sure. Date of review: May 26, 2008
In short: Wonderful run through beautiful countryside with fantastic organisattion In full: Scorching day out but it was well worth it as the scenery and peaceful running conditions were perfect. If it was cooler it definately has pb potential as the hills are mild.
Very enthusiastic and friendly support.
Organisation was first class (some of the best I've seen) and Halstead running club should be very proud of the event they put on. Thanks a lot to you all. I will be back next year came rain or shine. Date of review: May 12, 2008
In short: Glorious date out on a tough course but fantastically well organised and very friendly event In full: Did this in preparation for an ultra in Iceland I'm doing later in the year and turned out to be the most enjoyable marathon I've done in the UK. Stunning scenery and got just what I wanted with lots of wind, big hills and some sticky mud in places. Lots of friendly fellow runners and Steyning AC's wonderful welcome and friendly attitude was fanstastic. The organisation was first class (faultless from my point of view) and if you could stomach it, the cooked breakfast looked very hearty. Well done and a huge thanks to Steyning AC. You should all be proud of yourselves for a day like that. Date of review: March 2, 2008
