Roads needed closing ,would have only been a couple hours with only couple thousand runners ,and with the traffic problems caused by runners because the cars couldn’t get by ,they might as well have closed them , tewkesbury crowds were awesome ,so did put a downer on their great support

It was very well organised at the start and finish. Loved the second half of the route, but there was a bit too much traffic on the first half.

I was surprised that the roads had traffic on them. At times, it was fairly dangerous particularly when running underneath the M5. However I did enjoy my experience at Tewkesbury and got a good PB so it was a good day for me 😊

Great event and course. Generally very well marshalled however, there was some traffic problem in the village of Kemerton. See you next year!

Did the race in 2022
It was great, apart from the traffic situation. Quite dangerous in places where roads were not closed, and traffic passing runners very close and very fast. Also having to navigate pedestrians on a narrow footpath close to the finish for the same reason - traffic was keeping us off the road.
