Really enjoyed the event as a first timer at Oundle. Was well organised and was easy to get my number as a later entry.Only issues were parking and also getting your time. Some seem to be on the website, some didn’t, no details of when they would land or if there had been any issues.All minor, an enjoyable morning
Did the race in 2023
Nice undulating 10km two laps, 3 hills per lap. Can’t go wrong for a local run 10km.

I did it in 2021 and planned to do the 2022 one until my son was taken into hospital the day before.

Ran this one before, nice medal, and mostly traffic free. A big thanks to one of the marshalls, he made everyone running smile,with his support and humour, well done.
Did the race in 2023
I’ve attended this race for the past 4 events. The only negative is that they have lost the changing facilities (now none and now just portaloos) which were a good bonus considering the time of year. Parking is very poor too so you have to get there early
Did the race in 2023
Several friends had issues with their race times, 2 not even give a time a d 1 around 30s too long! It states osed roads yet vehicles were moving on roads and even outside the school vehicle were travelling way to fast.
Did the race in 2023
Let’s Do This emailed me my result at 12:30 same day. It showed I had come first in my age category and I have a screenshot to prove the notification sent. Nice work chip timing company then publish the results in the evening showing I’d actually come 2nd in my age cat and showed different stats for overall position and gender position. So no trophy after all having received bogus results which Nice Work said they’d investigate but after a week, still have not contacted me to explain the cock up. This is why I give it 1 star for organisation
Did the race in 2023
Let’s Do This emailed my result, showing I came 1st in my age category at 12:30 same day. Nice Work chip timing displayed official results from that evening showing I’d come second in my age cat and showed altogether different stats (overall position and gender position), so I was thinking how I’d won a trophy all day, only to discover later I had not! So this is why I give organisation only 1 star. Plus Nice Work said they’d investigate my bogus result but after 7 days have not contacted me.
