We’ll organised friendly race
Marshalls were excellent
Would like to say a massive thank you to the sweepers this year. being the last finishers they were very supportive and we did not feel like we were under pressure to go faster, this made for a very very enjoyable experience this year. 7 min 19 second PB and a much better experince with the sweeper this year. Thank you
The remembrance service before the race makes this a unique event. The first mile or two makes you concerned that this is a very hilly course but it flattens out. Nice support from the isolated farms and villages.
Great way to remember the fallen in the world wars
Great race and very well organised!
A race that is first on my list every year. Friendly, beautiful and fun (apart from the hills)
Keep up the good work!
Well organised and a great course
My only disappointment was the sausage in a bun bought at the end, it was inedible and ended up in the bin! The thing that cheered me up was that it raised money for the school so not all bad
Well organised, safe, and enjoyable event.
When finished, it was not immediately clear where to exit to see other runners in. The natural tendency when unable to see the exit is to return over the timing mat, which would create chaos. Some signage may be helpful to assist finishers.
Supplying the race numbers in an envelope was wasteful, particularly as the table with the pens and safety pins was littered with empty envelopes.
Brilliant event as always!
Keep up the good work!
Yet again a very well organized and well delivered event.
Have done this several times now and is still one of my all time favorites.
I love the small loop at the start to allow the field to open out before heading back past the school.
The only areas where I think it falls down is with the finish where i'd like to see a straight line finish to aid that final sprint. (Difficult I know with the open road) and a better surface between 6 & 8 miles. I know it's a private road but the condition of this gets worse with more potholes year on year. It's a slow section that lets down the rest of a cracking course.
I really enjoyed this race, felt it was very well organised and excellent marshalling
Great race and challenging course
Traffic should be managed better at the end of the race. You have runners heading for the finish with cars queuing/ backed up and driving on the road. It’s a risk to the runners and also a nightmare for those in the car
Great race and atmosphere.
Great 10 miler run!
A little bit hilly but a very nice challenge.
Great race, well organised, excellent marshaling, wonderful service before race
Unique race; as far as I know the only one to commemorate Remembrance Sunday with a service before the start; thank you to the vicarage of St Mary's and to the race organisers. Great atmosphere and excellent race tough enough for a decent workout and run like clockwork every year that I've run it. Lovely historic village too (see Pevsner) and good food and atmosphere at the White Hart after the run.
Possibly a bit hilly for beginners especially with the cut off time, but I loved it thank you (fairly seasoned runner)!
Medal is beautiful
Great race as always
Used to. E able to do in the day name transfers would be great to do this again when a club runner can’t run and another really wanted a place but couldn’t get in as sold out. Shame places go to waste.
Well organised and enjoyable event
