Yateley 10km series are three great evening events. Good for challenging yourself over the summer. Great atmosphere.

Yateley 3 2017: I enjoyed the run in perfect summer running conditions, i.e. cool with light rain. Excellent organisation as ever with ample marshals despite the inclement conditions for them. Respect to Sandhurst Joggers for organising three great evening races every summer.

My first Yatelely 10K and couldn't ask for better organisation. It was a good course - only issues being too few toilets available and a few bad drivers who didn't slow down but that can't be avoided on the roads.

Great series, really well organised and plenty of volunteers. Only criticism was the water on the first event, but I know that got explained and addressed. The year box below doesn't allow me to select 2017!!

As last year I loved it, people, marshalls they were all awesome. Make you feel very wellcome, and runners are most locals so you know some of them, camaraderie is always great. But the best is the medal!! I will give them 10/10 marshals on road are great taking care of the traffic and cheering runners.

A well organised, friendly race, value for money. Raced 2017." select year below" does not indicate this year?????The marshal's were very good. The only problem I experienced was at the 3k mark. I ran the 3 races and each time the Marshall was stood in front of the 3k marker. I tactfully shouted at her to move out of the way, as she was blocking the sign.

Great race and series as always. Organisation on day spot on. Marshals super supportive and looked after all runners safely. Only suggestion for next year would be investigate a better system for allowing people who can't run to hand their place back and allow other runners to take their place.

I think the organisers do a wonderful job, and the marshals are tremendous, both in volunteering to do the job, and insupporting the runners. My only issue is I'm surprised that the course couldn't be on more trail than on pavement. Yateley has a lotof green land (eg.. Yateley Lakes) and it would be nicer than running along roads. It would probably be easier to marshal too.Lastly, your survey form is dreadful. I can barely see where to click as everything is white. You are only showing 2016, when it should be 2017.

R3 was great for me with a new PB. Sadly the weather was rubbish and we did not enjoy such a high level of support (understandable as normally the support is great). As usual the marshals and volunteers were excellent and deserve high praise. I have been doing the Y10K since 2013 and this year was my first full house...they were all great...but R3 was my fav due to 1:33 improvement:)

I love the Yateley series - always well organised and well marshalled. The marshals are enthusiastic, supportive and friendly, even when the weather was rotten! They also have to deal with some awkward drivers who get rather impatient! The only thing that is a pain is the toilets. The queue is always so long and I was rushing to get to the race start. (I had to go more than once unfortunately!!) Other than that - it's brilliant! Love the t-shirt and the medals are awesome! Got to go some to beat it next year! Can't put 2017 in the year box!

I love the honesty of this course - there's no escaping the hills but at least they're followed by some decent flat and down. The organisation is superb and the marshals exceptional (especially given that there are several places where they need to hold up/placate motorists.I'll never be near the front of the pack but I'll definitely be back next year if I can.

First time I've done all 3 races and managed to get slower each time which tells me I need to train a bit in between. Many thanks for the Corporate challenge from BMW Runners - winners of all 3! I can't find any Corporate results though. so we don't know how many teams there are - great idea though and it motivates us at work to come out...Could you have more runners? Loads of people left it too late and it was sold out...?survey says 2016 but i'm reporting on 2017

Overall the Yateley 10K experience has been great fun as I did all three races. The medal is also fantastic as all of the pieces slot together. The only downside is that as a runner I felt vulnerable at various points on the course, due to a lack of support from stewards (more are needed) and the police. Cars were travelling too fast up and down some of the roads and several times this week during the final race, I thought there might be an accident as the cars were getting far too close to the runners. At one junction for example, a large 4x4 tried to turn left and actually forced its way between a group of runners before deciding against the manoeuvre. We were all running in formation and were as close to the pavements as possible. I think there needs to be more support from the local community, the police and some of the drivers could do with attending speed awareness courses as they flouted the Highway Code.

This was my 21st YRR in succession. Whilst the course isn't the most scenic around and the traffic along the Reading Road can be tedious, this is well compensated by the hugely friendly atmosphere, friendly marshals and excellent organisation.

Only complaint would be the water. I would rather pay more to have small bottles than plastic cups that make it impossible to take water and keep running. As a result spent the 2nd half of races feeling sick and coughing up water

Very good race. I would appreciate more info in emails: I know staff time doesn't change but confirmation of it would be good. Also don't think I received an email for race 2, which given was on the second Wednesday of the month rather than first was strange. Would have liked more confirmation of the date and time then.

As with all 3 races the organisation was impeccable almost military in precision but with humour and grace. It was my first yateley series (as in a relatively new runner) but will be the first race I look to put I the diary for next year!

I've run yateley for the last couple of years and it's one of the most enjoyable events of the year. Excellent organisation always makes it an great event to run in.This year the stars of the show where certainly the marshals who took on the wind and rain of the last race and still had enough enthusiasm to smile and cheer on the runners. The extra marshals on the main road this year are also a great addition, not only for safety but also motivation.Here's to yateley 2018...
