In short: Excellent race, very well organised with real PB potential! In full: A well organised city half marathon with real PB potential! Two flat laps with brilliant support throughout - excellent medal and t-shirt at the end. Thoroughly recommend to both seasoned pros and beginners alike! Date of review: October 9, 2016
In short: Excellent race - hot, hot, hot!! In full: Another well organised Manches 10k with the familiar hill through Moor Park Golf Course catching out the unaware! Great race and excellent weather (if a little too hot!) Date of review: September 27, 2009
In short: Great organisation - Bath, eat your heart out! In full: Once again, a well-organised event that never fails to impress. Only gripe is that the T-Shirts were cotton and not the usual dry-wicking material but, apart from that, faultless Date of review: September 6, 2009
In short: Enjoyable race! In full: Enjoyed this race. Very smooth organisation and a great family feel to the day. The course was a mixture of ups and downs and the weather certainly played its part - I was hugging to the shade as much as possible! Overall, an enjoyable race and I'll be back next year.

In short: Very enjoyable race with PB potential In full: Thoroughly enjoyed this race. Great support around the park and the weather certainly added to the occasion! Organisation was brilliant and the medal and t-shirt capped a wonderful day in Cassiobury Park. Many thanks to the organisers and marshalls for their sterling efforts. I have attended a lot of big races recently (Bath, Bristol) and this certainly ranks as one of the best races I have taken part in throughout 2008! Date of review: May 6, 2008
In short: Great race - Poor Organisation for a HUGE price! In full: The price of this race has been a long running thread on Runners World and, despite reassurances from the Race Director, the organisation proved to be a shambles. It's very simple. When people arrive at the finish, you have three lanes with large signs above them so people can see; one for small T-shirts, one for medium, one for large. In each lane, one person hands out the goody bag (with T-Shirt inside), one the silver foil and one a drink. People leave lane - done. This is a real shame as I really enjoyed the race itself. The crowd were brilliant and, as I ran it in fancy dress (Snow White), they really supported me along this PB potential course (only 2 mins under my PB - and I was in fancy dress).
I will be back next year but please sort this out! This race is on the crest of being a 'special' race for a vast majority of people but the administration really needs to get a whole lot better! Date of review: March 16, 2008
In short: Great race with PB potential In full: First outing for me and really enjoyed the course. Good mix of small downhill and uphill stretches and liked the final lap of the track to finish!
