    Thank you for organising the Oundle 20 in these uncertain times, we thought this may be the last race we could run for sometime, so thank you for managing everything to enable it to go ahead safely. I recall that you managed to rearrange the first Oundle 20 when weather intervened.
    it's a very pretty course through the Northamptonshire villages, the marshals were great being really encouraging standing in the rain and there were some terrific supporters travelling around the course. Thank you

    Perfectly timed for the last long training runs for the spring marathons, Oundle 20 was a challenging course but one that gave me confidence that, had the marathon not been postponed, I would have been well prepared for it. The organisation was ok, though there could maybe have been more signposting to where things were (e.g. baggage arrangements, t-shirt collection) - but this was more than made up for by the fact that a) the event went ahead despite many others being cancelled, b) the attention to detail to keep runners and volunteers safe was second to none, and c) the support from crew and other runners on the day was awesome! Could someone please flatten out the hill at mile 19 though...?! Thank you for a great event - I'd definitely do it again!

    Excellent effort by the organisers given the difficult circumstances and self-imposed corona measures.
    Despite the weather, coming last and going round the course completely self-supporting with an 8kg rucksack, I really enjoyed the event and look forward to doing it again next year in better circumstances.
    Very grateful to both Nice-work and Oundle Primary School for staging a reduced event which will be fondly remember, I'm sure, by most participants as the last event before the big sport shut down.

    Competitive field. Pleasant undulating course - certainly not flat. Support was sparse but the weather wasn’t great.

    I always love the Oundle 20 Mile. The course is great; undulating roads, some nice long downhills, an exposed windy stretch, and some nasty hills to finish. I consider it a road steeplechase - you're always looking for the spire of the church in the next village down the road. It's local for me, but I would travel for it. Perfect timing for spring marathon training, and always a proper medal and a long-sleeved t-short as a reward.

    Very well organised and friendly event. Tough course made harder by the conditions but a good solid 20 miles and some very encouraging support in the villages. Excellent marathon preparation.
