In short: Its hilly!! In full: Its up hill for most of the first 5 miles,then its down hill with a few short climbs. Nice Marshals & lots of water spounges etc. Open roads but little traffic & the locals are friendly. I forgot to collect my t shirt, my fault . You may not enjoy the hills but as day out it was worth the effort getting there... Date of review: July 25, 2016
In short: worth the long drive.. In full: I have run this race for several years,its a well organised & friendly event.Staplehurst is very nice & the club runners are there to race each other, for the majority of the field its about having a sunday morning run in the countryside around Staplehurst. If you try this race you will enjoy it.. Date of review: July 18, 2016

In short: look forward to this race every year. In full: I have run in the 10 mile almost every year since 2004,always a great event. the work put in by marshals and all the orgaisers is as good as you can get. book early it always sells out,will run again in 2017... Date of review: May 15, 2016
In short: always enjoy this race. In full: ran the 10 mile at haywards heath,warm day. It goes up and down, but a good mix of runners means your not on your own and you soon fall in with a group runing at your pace. I would recomend this race ,its not flat but the whole event has a nice feel. will run again in 2017.. Date of review: May 3, 2016
In short: highly recomended........ In full: I have run this race many times and its always a great way to spend a sunday morning. Would always recomend this event,will run again in 2017..... Date of review: April 4, 2016
In short: Not ideal but......... In full: I had forseen the park & ride issues having run many races in the area,so i parked at hampton ct station cark park and walked to the start. The numbers of runners did seem to overwhelm the the organisation,i decided to start from the very back as it seemed to offer a chance of a clear run. The route is flat and is a pb race,given the problems some say they wont run it again,but the problem of numbers etc can be fixed. My result shows i had to overtake around 700 runners but i survived and will try again in 2017...
In short: Good post christmas race... In full: First time running the ten mile route,its a test but the climbs are not that steep and are followed by flat or down hill to the finish. Nice feel to the event & it was nice to see that the Marshals & finish line helpers were there for the last runners home as well as the first, try this one in 2016.......
