Tough hills, but fabulous scenery and a fine free pint to wash down the banana. Love this race!

Top race. Fantastic job all round - just the best organisation, admin, marshalls, signage etc. Massive thanks to all. Special mention for max irony sign 'keep smiling' near top of 3rd climb... Free beer/cider at the finish + excellent cakes. Yeah, there are hills but also spectacular downhills and incredible views. You need to do this race.

Great fun on the Berkshire Alps A super low key event, great big hills, great value and finished off with a medal and a beer.

Whats not to like about it?

We had a great time, will be back next year for sure.

Challenging and scenic First time I've done this race as it's challenging because of the hills but great organisation and friendly so hope to do it again next year.

A lovely race If you like little local races then this is for you. If you like excellent value (entry fee £8 with good on-site parking, a medal, a banana, a meusli bar, cake and a free beer at the end) then this is for you. Oh and there was also extra value as the course is in fact around 10.5K. If you like friendly marshals and an almost traffic free course with stunning views then this is for you. And if you like hills then you'll love this one. To say that the course is undulating is a bit of an understatement. My split times varied from 7:58 to 4:33 with pretty much the same effort all the way so you get the idea. And that gave even better value as I had 15 minutes more running time than at Eastleigh.

This is definitely one to add to your must do list
