Very well organized, friendly race along an excellent varied, circular course. Worth looking out on social media for race related offers from local businesses. THE hill at Fordcombe is tough, but there is excellent local support from spectators in several of the villages and in particular on the last mile or two as you head back into Tunbridge Wells. I have done this race the last four years. There was one lunatic car driver between Fordcombe and Langton Green who appeared to be ignoring all advice/instructions from marshals and driving in a very dangerous manner. Tho short of completely closing all the roads - which could render the race unviable as an event - I'm not sure what can be done about that sort of behaviour,

It was my first time racing in Tunbridge Wells and I'd highly recommend it. The organisation was top class - the most efficient portaloo queues I've ever seen and likewise at baggage collection, they had my bag on the table before I'd even got there. The staff volunteering at these points and throughout the event were enthusiastic and energetic which helped make a fantastic atmosphere.The race itself was wonderful - perhaps helped by the weather. The marshalls were well placed and enthusiastically cheering us on. I particularly appreciated the ones that were helping monitor the traffic or warning us of speed bumps, whilst we were sharing the roads at times, I certainly felt safe. And those at the water points were already clearing the roads whilst we were running - top effort.So thank you to every single person that helped make this possible. It was wonderful!

Fantastic organisation. So many helpers in the morning at HQ. Baggage drop off at HQ was easy and very helpful. Car parking was well sign posted and easy to on the run route (i got there early). Course was really 2 halfs. First 10k was mostly down hill and second 10K was quite tough and challenging. Route was fantastic though, stunning views and good crowds in the villages. Lots of well manned water stops and marshals was great around the course. Lots of toilets at the start and lots of people helping out getting people in the toilets quickly! Never seen club members at a course help out in every job!!!Done this a few times and will do this again if i keep fit. Many thanks all helpers!

Amazing event. No headphones rule was not enforced as far as I could see which was disheartening given I and many others adhered to the rules
