      This race was last held in 2014, I had never taken part before but was so pleased when It apperared for this year.The Bike route is fast and easy with a few climbs but the run is a little lumpy 300 ft ( ish) in 2.8 miles so practice those hills.But this is a real good fun and a good test of fitness at the start of the season.Top work from the team at Immortal Sport

      I arrived in the centre of Stroud an hour before the race started at 7am parking in one of the towns car parks which were free to park in on a Sunday and there were lots of them scattered around. It was a short walk to the start and the registration and I collected my race number no problem and without any waiting. 5 minutes before the start we were given a race briefing in a small courtyard before being set off.The course was beautiful and 95% trail, it took us through woods, across fields along foot paths and along the canal. It was a tough course with some killer hills but the views at the top of them were definitely worth the effort.The aid stations were very basic, offering water and towards the end bottles of sports drink, but the people running the stations were very friendly and super supportive.At the end I received a medal, finishers t-shirt and a goodie bag with drink, flapjack and crisps.I really enjoyed the challenge of the hills and the fantastic views that this race offered

    • Did the Half Ironman in 2017

      A well organised event let down a little by the bike course. Although pretty, the road surface wasn't the best and there were two sets of roadworks that year (2107). The feed station (on the bike) was not ideal. The route was changed last minute for 2018 so 2019 could all be different. Great location and support as always though.
    • Did the event in 2018

      Reading the race overview on the website I knew that it was going to be a tough course, and it was. That's not to say it wasn't enjoyable - the location is amazing and great for spectators and the marshalling of the course was excellent - clearly letting you know the direction to go and understanding the nature of triathlon and letting you know a corner was clear and you could crack on! plus always a smile. It is hilly and that hurt a fair bit by the end but the feeling at the end is fantastic. A really great event.

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Very good race, really friendly atmosphere among the runners and supporters. Incredible route out in the country side, very different to most half marathons that are organised in cities. Very hilly course, so not a quick run but still very enjoyable if taking it at a slower pace.

      I am proud to say this was my first 10k. The lovely, scenic route along with the atmosphere plus having my favourite people cheering me on made this a day to remember!
    • Did the event in 2018

      This is the second time I have taken part in the Great Bristol 10k, part of the Great Run series of events. In terms of crowd support and the volunteers this race cannot be faulted, there is support all the way around the course with (from memory) at least 4 bands playing as well. Logistically the race is easy to get to and easy to find where you need to be, I advise getting the Park & Ride in as it saves trying to find a parking space in the city with all the of the road closures. When you get over the finish line you’re directed to keep walking and are given your finishers bag in order with your clothing size. The sizing for the Tshirts was quite a bit larger this year, the small last year was perfect however this year was very baggy. If I had known I would have sized down but still a quality technical Tshirt. At £30 the race is expensive for a 10k however when you take into account the work that goes into putting on a race in a popular city centre it is actually good value. I would Race this again as was where I achieved my 10k PB last year but it does get crowded and there are a few pinch points on course. For the experience and atmosphere though it’s 10/10.

      Getting ThereThis is my local run, so getting there was a piece of cake for myself and my running buddy!The race starts at the University of the West of England's Glennside Campus, which has plenty of parking. The well-organised registration desk was in the student union, which was also open for snacks and coffee. I should also note, they were still accepting registration on the day.The starting line is a little way up the campus and we took our places amongst the 500 or so other runners, ready to set off. There was a quick race briefing and then we were off!The Race ItselfThe race is entirely off the road, but on tarmac pavements or well-maintained parkland throughout. It was described as "undulating" by the registration volunteers, but they definitely said it with their tongue in their cheek - there's some big ol' hills on this one.The first kilometer is a loop of the campus to get you warmed up before heading down the steep Blackberry Hill and onto the Snuff Mills section of the Frome Valley Walkway. The section is a nice riverside footpath, mostly on the flat, but is open to the public and has a few narrow bridges so there's a possibility of getting caught up in some human traffic.As you make your way towards the end of 3km, you hit the first uphill section, heading up to Oldbury Court park. Once you're in the park, you follow the edge around the grass field. There's little shelter here, which is a bit of a killer in the 28 degree heat we were racing in...Leaving the park, you work your way through a couple of housing estates, following the main road around to Downend. As you pass the 5k mark here, there's a water station, and quite a few people out in the gardens to cheer you on. At around 6km, you turn away from the main road and head back downhill again, crossing the river Frome before immediately heading back up a 300m stretch of steep uphill. Thankfully at this point, a kind gentleman was watering his flowers and used his hosepipe to provide us runners with a bit of a cooling shower!Rounding the corner at the top of the hill, you run through Frenchay, across the common and around, following the path back to the main road. The next couple of kilometers are mostly downhill and follow the pavement alongside the road, before a minor diversion to avoid crossing it. At kilometer 9, you start to head back up the steep Blackberry hill. Almost the entire final kilometer is up this beast and it will take everything you've got to keep your pace up. The pain makes crossing the finish line all the more exhillerating though and its a real rush!The Finish Line Back in UWE campus, you run past the union to the finish line, which was well attended with cheering members of the public. Just beyond this is the table where you can collect your congratulatory mug (yes you get a mug instead of a medal!), some water and snacks. Once you've got your breath back, the student's union is still open for a nice cooling pint too!Overall ImpressionsThis was a tough race, but worthwhile. The public were out in force, and gave a really nice feel - particularly the kind man who was cooling us down on the way up Frenchay's steep hill! The course was well laid out and the whole thing well organised. Definitely one to do again, even if my co-runner was disappointed with his mug not being an actual medal!

      2018 saw my return to the Stroud Half Marathon 5 years from my last.
      The event is still a good half marathon with a great buzz for the Stroud area.
      What didn't go so well were the terrible toilet and bag drop tailbacks. This caused the race start to be delayed. Overall this was still a great event to do though parts of the course are on busy roads. It's also pretty flat, especially considering how hilly Stroud can be so that's a bonus if you're looking for a good time. Mention must go to the pace team who did a fantasitc job of helping many people achieve their goals. Finally the finishers t-shirt was top notch with a decent fit.
    • Did the event in 2018

      I've ran this race many times but for 11 or 12 years. The course was much the same except the first 3 miles which no longer includes a circuit of Stonehouse. The start was 15 minutes late due to chaos at the bag check, which they subsequently realised and vowed to change next year. I do like it when organisers admit they're wrong and want to improve. Once out of the town, the route is very scenic and beautiful on a sunny autumn morning. The medal was of good quality and a great tee shirt and I would definitely ran again.

      STROUD HALF MARATHON – Race Review – 22 October 2017I’ve wanted to run the Stroud Half for a number of years due to the fact that it is probably the most local Half to wear I live (prior to the recently established Gloucester Half, which was held in August 2017). Given that is was scheduled to take place two weeks after the Chester Marathon and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to walk, let alone run, so decided to hold-fire and see how the legs were feeling the day after. Despite the fact I actually couldn’t walk the next day, I was still bitterly disappointed to find out that it had actually sold out! Great for the event, but not so for me! Not to be put off, I entered onto the reserve list and hoped that if I did get a last minute place, I’d actually be capable of running it!I did absolutely no exercise the week after the Chester, aside from booking an appointment with a local physio for this coming Wednesday. The hamstring issue had been going on for long enough now (since June) and I can’t continue to run on it for much longer without doing some serious damage. However, the week leading up to Stroud (still without a place), I did a few easy sessions on the treadmill at my local gym just to keep the muscles active and run-off the last of the aches and pains from marathon.To my absolute delight, I received an email on the Thursday before the race advising me that I had a place! Even though the hamstring wasn’t great, I felt that I needed to get out and exercise a few demons after the disappointment of Chester, so what better way to do it than out on the roads I’m so familiar with on my Sunday training runs. No pressure and no PB expectation. I was actually excited about a race for the first time in ages, as I’d started to fall out of love with my running over the last couple of months due to the injuries and pressure I’d heaped upon myself before Chester. I was actually resenting training programme and the need to bang out long runs, in pain, on a regular basis.My new, relaxed approach to road running allowed me to polish off a good few bottles of wine on Friday night and further quantities of wine and lager at a wedding reception in Cheltenham on Saturday night… So, feeling rather ‘unrefreshed’ as the alarm woke me at 6am on Sunday morning, I was soon sitting in a car park, still in darkness, at 7.30am, about a 10 minute walk from Marling School, which was race HQ for the day.  Being a late entry, I had to pick up my race number from the information tent first thing that morning. Given that it was still fairly breezy after Storm Brian with a distinct autumn nip to the air, the indoor changing facilities were a welcome bonus and were used by many of the runners participating. There was also a bag-drop (more of that later) on the playing fields and ample toilet cubicles. Having male urinals always gets a massive thumbs-up from me and means I (and many others, I’m sure!) can take advantage of them 3 or 4 times before the race without having to join the lengthy queues that start to form about half an hour prior to the start.The race is well-established and in its 36th year (one of the oldest Halfs in the UK, apparently), and is well supported by many of the local running clubs. There were large contingencies from Dursley, Stroud, Gloucester, Hucclecote and Kingsway all proudly posing for their group photos before the start of the race. There were also many like me who were keen to participate in what is seen to be a friendly and respected road race within the local running fraternity.As mentioned above, I had no strategy other than to enjoy the race and finish my season with a smile on my face. My only ‘plan’ was to run with the 1.45 pacemaker for as long as I could, and at the point my hamstring tightened up too much, I’d drop off and coast the remaining miles…however many that may be! I met up with a friend before the race who was looking at running c. 1.45, so he joined me in the pack of runners who were intending to closely shadow Michelle Balchin, a member of Cheltenham’s Almost Athletes, who was charged with getting the group round on time. No pressure then!  The race started at 9am sharp and conditions were almost perfect for running an autumn Half; 10 degrees with a breeze that didn’t feel as strong as the 16mph that had been forecast. As we moved away from the start line, to my (and everyone else’s) delight, Michelle treated us to a feast of music via a ‘sound system’ she was running with! She began with some Fleetwood Mac, before moving onto a variety of dance/pop, with a bit of Eminem thrown in for good measure! Michelle’s intention was to increase the tempo gradually throughout the race, keeping spirits high along the way, which it certainly did!The route effectively took us on the main road out of Stroud towards Ebley and then right into Stonehouse making our way along the high street, which was lined with enthusiastic supporters. Michelle’s mile splits were spot-on, ranging between 7.45 and 7.55 for the first 4 miles, and with this relaxed approach and some good tunes and laughs to keep us entertained, the miles flew by. Even the inclines on the country road out of Stonehouse towards Standish were made easy by the music and company who were riding the 1.45 ‘fun bus’!Mile 5 was run slightly quicker intentionally (7.36), to bank some time for the hill at around 6 miles, which was effectively a climb up to the Whitminster Inn, as Michelle’s plan was to approach it fairly cautiously to ensure everyone had fresh legs for the second half of the race. A section of mile 6 was tricky, as this was run on the busy and often dangerous A38, so the width of a cyclepath had been coned-off to provide the runners with a safe route up the hill. At this stage I was still feeling good and given that I was feeling no effects from the hamstring, took a gel and decided to attack the hill. As I moved away from the pack, I heard a few people comment that I’d likely tire myself out, but I was feeling strong and didn’t want to lose momentum by slowing down, so went for it! After all, that’s what hill training is for. Right? The ascent was brilliant, and reminded me of the Tour de France, as there were a large number of supporters at the top of the hill cheering, shouting and ringing cowbells. Just the motivation I needed! Mile 7 was an 8.07, and whilst it was slightly slower than those previous (which was deliberate), I knew that there were no more hills to tackle, so my confidence was still up. I was also conscious of the 1.45’s behind me, so I knew that if I couldn’t hear the music, I’d be running well and maintaining my form!The next mile (through Nupend) had a few inclines, and I went through at 7.57 knowing that there would shortly be a long stretch of dual carriageway back to Stonehouse (via the infamous industrial estate) where I could get into a good rhythm if the direction of the wind was kind. My plan was now to start reeling-in the runners I could see ahead of me, but balance this exuberance against running out of steam too early in the race as there was still 5 miles to go. Mile 9 was 7.46 (I was speeding up!) and I caught the pack I had targeted as we entered the industrial estate which was about a mile loop before getting back onto the main road. At the entrance to the estate a rock choir was performing well-known songs. They were amazing and definitely lifted everyone’s spirits! At this point, the faster runners were leaving the estate and I saw one of my daughters teachers (I shouted hi across to him, which took him by surprise!), who I know is very good runner, so I figured I was only a mile behind some decent guys! I caught more runners on the loop and was still feeling surprisingly strong and injury-free when I hit mile 10 and saw I’d run a 7.45, I knew at that point that it was (unexpectedly) going to potentially be a good day…unless the wheels fell off in the last few miles.As we left the estate, I said to a fellow runner that we just had a parkrun to go, and I think that motivated her into keeping alongside me, as I seemed fairly fresh and she was starting to tire so probably needed to be pulled along. I knew my form must be good as I proceeded (not deliberately) to accelerate away from her. She caught me again and I remember saying “I’ve got a Golden ticket today! I’m actually feeling amazing and on course for a PB…I’m sure it’s all going to blow-up!” She was fantastic (a Stroud Athletic runner) and told me I’d do great and just to go for it. Running is one of the few sports where participants actually encourage each other to do well…unless you’re at the very competitive end of the spectrum.Another 7.40-something(!), and I only had 2 miles to go as I turned left onto the Ebley Road, greeted with a tail wind of all things! This was certainly proving to be my day!  I was starting to tire now and was trying to deal with each mile at a time, knowing that if I ran this one fairly well, I’d only have one to go. As I approach the final mile I knew that a final push could get me close to my Brighton PB of 1.43.59, so mustered everything I had left to keep me moving towards my goal. The final mile was fairly lumpy, with some short, sharp inclines that were not welcomed when the legs are beginning to get heavy. The crowds on the side of the road were willing us on, shouting – “Only a minute to go!” and “It’s all downhill now!” which was great…even though it wasn’t entirely true!As I got to 13 and saw my mile time was 7.53, I knew I’d probably done enough. Then, as I approach the final slight incline going into the home straight, I looked down to see my time was registering something like 1.43.06, and at that point I instinctively threw my arms up, repeatedly punching the air! I actually jumped over the finish line in jubilation with a huge smile plastered across my face. Despite the disappointment of Chester, the last minute entry and the injuries that had plagued me for weeks, I’d, against all odds, beaten my PB by 38 seconds (on a longer course than Brighton too), with my official time being 1.43.21. The leg had held strong (although I couldn’t walk the next day as the hamstring had completely seized up) and running without expectation (and a slight hangover) had clearly worked!My friend came in about a minute later, which meant he’d ducked 1.45 too, which was a fantastic achievement, given that he’d been experiencing a few knee problems. However, the star of the show was Michelle, for getting me and the other runners on the ‘fun bus’ home as intended. She must have a built-in metronome to have been able to run such consistent splits! The music, the laughs and great pacing made this one of the most enjoyable Halfs I’ve run.The only negative was the bag collection tent. Once I’d picked up my medal and finishers t-shirt and made my way back into the school grounds, the queue was huge, and not moving. After a 20 minute wait (at this point I was getting very cold and uncomfortable) I reached the front. The scenes inside were chaotic. Runners had actually started entering the tent themselves to retrieve their bags, (which is potentially a security concern as people leave phones and valuables in their bags) with the mayhem resembling a blue-cross sale in a department store at Christmas. I fully appreciate that many of these people are volunteers and am truly grateful for the free time they give up for these events, but they had at least an hour and a half (before the first runners came in) to get a system in place that would allow them to hand out the bags far more quickly and orderly. I’m not sure if this happened in previous years, but it would be helpful if it could be improved, as it can often be cold hanging around without a jacket in late October.Aside from that minor grumble, it was a fantastic event and one the organisers should be proud of. I’m so grateful that I was able to scrape into the race by the skin of my teeth (so thank you once again to the organisers), not only to run a PB, but to also experience such a great local race that I’ll definitely come back and do again. Gloucestershire is establishing itself as a great county for road and trail running and there are some fantastic and innovative companies out there arranging some unique, and established, events. I’m probably biased since I ran well and live close to the route, but it’s probably the best small Half I’ve run to date in the UK; in terms of local support, the organisation, the volunteers and marshals and the fun, enjoyment and camaraderie that could be felt out on the course.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    A truly special race that not only takes in many of Bath's beautiful attractions but also has the longest underground sections of any running race in the UK!

    Cutting right under the city of Bath, the two tunnels offer a truly unique running experience. The Somerset & Dorset Railway closed in 1966 and until April 2013 the tunnels have been sealed and inaccessible. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Two Tunnels Group and Sustrans over 7 years, the two tunnels now have a new lease of life as a shared use path. The first tunnel; The Devonshire Tunnel is 408m long and the second Combe Down Tunnel is 1672m long. Both tunnels are well lit and well surfaced and have recently been converted into a shared use path for the enjoyments of runners, walkers, and cyclists looking to make the most of the city whilst remaining a flatter ground.

    With a marathon, 3 different half marathons, 2 different 10kms, 5kms and 500m races there are events for all the family, and if they are not taking part, bring your friends and family to cheer you on; our start and finish will be in Brickfields Park in the middle of the city. A green park complete with children's playground and table tennis table, a great spot to sit and enjoy a picnic after the race.

      Due to the Bath Half being cancelled because of the snow, I chose this race as an alternative race so that my training would not be wasted and so I felt that I had earned the generous sponsorship I had received. The two tunnels are a fantastic place to run, and as it was a very hot day the coolness of the tunnels was a hugely welcome relief! The route had more inclines than I had expected, but it was overall a fairly flat route. Great water/fuel stations and fantastic support from the marshalls and the locals.

      Having completed the Bath Two Tunnels in February, i decided to run the 5km event again but this time in May.The Bath Two Tunnels is a fantastic run for all abilities with great support from spectators and organisers.I have entered for all 4 races in the series one of which is a 10km, entering the 10km i will be able to run through the second tunnel which is longer than the first tunnel and i can not wait.
    • Did the event in 2017

      This is a realy interesting course, starting on playing fields before heading down onto the cycle path which leads you through two tunnels. The first is about a quarter of a mile long and the second about a mile.This was my second time running it, and I enjoyed as much as the first! The course gently rises for the first few kilometers before hitting the tunnels. Afterwards it's generally a gentle downhill until the 5k turn point.It's not a pb course i don't think, with a pinch point near the start that slows many to a walk as people filter through and the cycle track isn't closed to the public for the day so you will ncounter many a cyclist and walker on your route, which can be a bit of a squeeze in the tunnels, but nevertheless i really like the course and i'll be back for sessions three and four later this year.I mustn't forget the interlinking series medals too! I'm halfway to making a complete train from them this year :)

      First time running the Chew Valley 10k and thoroughly enjoyed it despite the hill. It's a really well organised and marshalled race with excellent local support all the way round, including musical distraction at a few points. There's even two water stations which is unusual for a 10k but seemed welcome. And most importantly for a nice local race there's a technical t shirt included in the price, a date stamped medal and a great selection of cakes and food back at the village hall.

      Did The Big T Triathlon Olympic Distance yesterday in the blazing sun! The swim was in Trowbridge leisure center and was very well organised and ran very smoothly. Following the swim was a short run to a nearby tennis court where transition was based. Onto the bike with was a 2 lap course which was mostly fast and flat with a couple of slight inclines but nothing too energy zapping. Transition was well organised and ran smoothly.The Run course was an ‘out and back’  (twice for the Olympic Distance) and to be honest was a pretty boring route although the original 2 lap route was changed at the last minute due to the recent amount of rain so the organisers couldn’t be blamed for that. Local support for the event wasn’t too great and I could of done with a bit more support in the heat but the marshals did their best to try and keep our spirits up.The medal & finishers t-shirt was nice and all in all a good day out and it’s a triathlon I would definitely consider doing again

      This was a short notice tri in terms of my training plan as it ended up being about half way through my initial training Sprint training plan but as a few free places were being offered by the company for debut triathletes living locally I thought why not push myself - and boy was it a challenge! Luckily I had scoped out the bike course the week before the race with some previous competitors from my club as it was far more hilly than I could imagine - but don't let that put you off! It was well worth it come the finish line emotions.Can't rate the registration process as I say it was a free place and all that was taken care of by TriMax Events for me. I have previously entered their running events so wouldn't have expected any issues had I needed to enter myselfThe aid station was limited to one water station on the run course - as it was a sprint event fueling was on an individual carry situation so I only grabbed one cup of water on the start of the second/final lap which was water in a cup so nothing more can be saidLocal support from the public was non existent from what I could take in and some of the park users on the run course looked offended a race was taking place in their park as this bruiser ran along in a skin tight tri suit at pace! The support at the transition / race village was good but as it was my first event I struggled to take in exactly how the atmosphere was - my team mates were there and very vocal so anything else was lostMarshal supervision was superb bar one chap in the swim section where he rudely informed me that I was holding up the 2 swimmers behind me even though they hadn't touched my feet - I then spent the rest of the swim grabbing at their feet as they were slowing me down - hey it is what it is but as I had listened to the briefing and the actions dictated hadn't occured his tone was aggresive and rude - this didn't sour my day but did annoy me at the time.The bike course had one compulsory foot down point where a right hand turn across a busy road was required - marshal there was on top of things and quick to acknowledge the foot down. The course is on open roads and you have to be aware of whats around you, unlike the other competitor who came flying down the hill past me and hadn't seen the horse box trailer coming out of the house until they were close enough to get stuck right up the rear axle. The only issue on the run course is a roundabout (the exit you run across is permanently blocked off and safe) where competitors tended to straight line the curve and didn't stick to a set side so I feel an improvement could be made here with some barrier tape and out and back lanes so the people traffic aren't dodging each other with potential for stepping into on coming vehicular traffic especially when the traffic is coming from behind on the out part of the loopOverall this race was fantastic and a real eye opener to the world of triathlon, as I have said the bike course is hilly but whats a challenge without something outside your current comfort zone? The organisation was brilliant and the provision of medals and mugs for finishers was a nice touch. I enjoyed this event so much I wanted to return to smash my course PB at The Last Tri in October alas work gets in the way so i've had to change my end of year event to something else. Will return next year to one of these Lydney based events. Well done TriMax Events on a brilliant event

      i think the route would be much better in reverse the support is very quiet from mile 10 (Magor) to Mile 21(NISV). the supporters give you a natural boost and it would be much better if this was about mile 16 instead of mile 10 Magor was amazing.Quiet exspensive , a pity that the 10k Tshirt were better than the Marathon ones. yellow is good for night running

      Pros- Great to have a flat, fast mass participation marathon in Wales- Fab t-shirt and medal- Easy registration (everything sent through the post in advance)- Good feed stations, regular and offering water/lucozade/gels- Lots of toilets along the route (although they did fill up and run out of toilet roll so were a bit grim at points)- Good environmental ethos, lots of recycling bins throughout the route encouraging runners to bin gel packets and bottles - Great support in certain parts of the route; loved the crowds and live band in Magor, and the crowds at the start/finishCons- Issues with park and ride (organisers well aware, pushed start back by 30mins and have said they will review) Consequence was it took 1hr40 to go 2 miles, we didn’t get to the race village until 9.10 (original start time 9am), in a rush and no signage directing us to start pen added to our pre-race panic!- The route, while flat, suffers from being so rural at times as it meant miles and miles of long country lanes with no supporters - it was tough on morale but then any marathon has its low points - Getting to Magor later on would boost morale as there was so much going on there but we arrived at 10 miles, boost would’ve been nice later on- Out and back to the transporter bridge was a bit soul destroying in the late stages, not sure what can be done there though

      As this was the inaugural Newport Marathon and being a proud welsh girl, it had to be done as my first ever marathon outing. Run4Wales always put on a good race (Cardiff Half being one of my favourites!) and they didn't disappoint on this first marathon either.Big bag drop in the car park, which eveyone got through quickly, LOADS of toilets (I wasn't queuing behind more than 3 people for a loo, bravo on this one!).The race did start 30 mins late, due to the park & ride but through no fault of Run4Wales, as the roadworks there are a nightmare.  Rookie error by me for not taking an old jacket to throw away, so was a bit cold.The route is flat (apart from the bridge at mile 1 & 25 but it's only a slight gradient, nothing serious and then there is one more gradient round the course), so it's certainly a fast route if you're going for a PB!Some of the roads are quiet as they are country roads, so not much support on the way (I was already aware of this as I had been helping out at the pre-marathon training session, so I had already run some of the course). If you don't mind not having the crowd support, then it's all good but the people who came out in Magor to cheer everyone on totally made up for it.  Plus lots of runners were chatting to each other, so the moreale around the course was good anyway.Plenty of water stations, aid stations and lots of recycling bins & boxes on the route to throw your empty bottles and gel packs into (yet I still saw some people thowing their empty gel packs to the floor :-(.....)Volunteers were rocking it round the course with loud hailers, big foam fingers & lots of cheers and at the finish with big hugs for us finishers.Surreal points..... Having horses in a field run alongside us, Cows runing up to the fences to see what was going on and the Banging DJ in his pimped up red tractor of decks and speakers, smashing out dance tunes.Only low point for me was the loop run up to the transporter bridge and back (around mile 22-24) longest few miles of my life! The finish line straight was amazing, so lovely to see so many people had come out to support and cheer.  You certainly feel amazing running up that last straight.  Chip timing was spot on, so my supporters knew exactly when I was coming into the finish.Nice medal, good tshirt, congrats to Steve Brace for a super route & to all at Run4Wales for putting on a great event.  I am so coming back next year!

      A few days before the race we got an email to say because of the weather forecast we would need to carry 2l water - double what I was panning to carry and what I had trained with. So I bought a bladder to go with my two soft flasks. Carrying an extra kilo turned out to be completely unnecessary and just made the race more difficult. Possibly the walkers would have needed it but not the runners - there were aid stations or water stations about every 10k and there are pubs en route in case of emergency too.

      I found it difficult before this race to get information on what food would be provided at aid stations. I needed vegan food. I emailed and was provided with a lousy of food provided at the London to Brighton race - it was still hard to tell what from that was vegan. Unfortunately my fears were well founded. At the 50km meal stop I asked about vegan food and the boy serving didn't seem to know what that even meant. There was a vegetarian pasta but he was unable to tell me if it was suitable for vegans. He offered me a vegetable casserole, I lifted the lid to see what was inside but it was empty. He said if I waited 20 minutes the cook would heat some up. But he couldn't tell me what vegetable casserole was. It just sounded like hot vegetables to me and I was in the middle of a race - 20 minute wait for food? No thanks! Also if there's a vegetarian pasta option how hard would it be to make that vegan? Or if it's already vegan, provide information to confirm that!

      I pulled out with injury at 64km (no thanks to the extra water I had to carry) and got the shuttle to the finish, where at least a hot meal would be waiting for me, right? WRONG. I asked about vegan food and the lad at the counter pointed me in the direction of a vegetarian lasagne, covered in cheese.

      I would say if you are on any kind of special diet or have an allergy, avoid this race as staff have no knowledge and cannot advise whether food is suitable.

      This was my first 100km and I'm glad it was because it was extremely well-marked and every aid station had medical and loads of supplies.It's a mix of trail and road, with some lovely views, and very up and down. The start and finish were in accessible places and the race brief was really thorough. I had volunteers looking me in the eyes at aid stations and asking how I was, they were brilliant.I only marked down on;
      Local support - it's a national trail, so there were ramblers cheering us on, but other than that, no one was about. And only about three people (volunteers) cheered me into the finish, but - like I said - it's a walking event mainly and they were all behind me.
      Course uniqueness - there's loads of races on the Cotswold Way, in fact there were two others on this day! For good reason though.
      Value for money - it's an expensive race, but you can definitely see where the money goes, worth it, especially if it'll be your only 100km.
      Registration - I registered using a coupon that my friend had from signing up, and there was a bit f confusion over it. All good in the end though.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The run will start and finish at St Georges School in the Village of Semington. The 10k route will take you through the village and onto the Kennet and Avon Canal towpath. From here you will follow leafy lanes and bridle paths before returning to the Village. The 2k route is a loop from the school round the village via the towpath.

    The run is being organised to raise funds for a sensory path for the school and it hoped to involve the whole community.

      A local 10k so decided to pick Semington Slog for my 1st 10k race. Very well organised and marshalls were great.
      Killer hill coming off the canal but pretty much a flat course other than that.
      Thankful I ran with 2 other people (no one close enough in front or behind) as the track behind the Rugby club was rather lonely.

      Instant results and a goodie bag which also gave a free hot dog at the BBQ was very welcome.

      Would definitely recommend to others and hope to return next year.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Cheddar Gorge Challenge has been taking places for the last 4 years across a series of summer dates. This year we are focusing on one date as we continue to expand our race series to new locations.

    We have a NEW start/finish location, with accessible parking just a short flat walk to registration and the start line. The routes will remain largely unchanged as we are able to jump onto the existing routes from our new base, though as we are effectively starting mid way round the old courses, you will see the route in a differnt and arguably less hilly light.

    NEW for 2017, the Cheddar Gorge Challenge in joining the National Trust's South West Outdoor Festival (SWOF). This is a celebration of everything outdoors with trail races, sportives, camping, live music, guest speakers, food foraging, axe throwing (not in the direction of the runners...the race is tough enough) and many others activities taking place across the long weekend of 8th - 10th September 2017.

      I love trying to seek out unique races and found this after reading an article in one of the running magazines. It was organised really well and coincided with a national trust atmosphere which added to the atmosphere. It was friendly and fun and i would definitely recommend - although the trail run was tough!
