    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      Really enjoyable, good venue, easy to get to, close transitions and very flat so PB friendly
    • Did the 10K in 2018

      The race was managed very well except there could have been another water station at the other end of the lake... it was very hot and there is no shade so an extra drink would of helped.Thanks
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Excellent race, really well organised and great atmosphere. Lovely scenic setting and totally flat Course! Also great to go to a race where you then also dont have to pay more to park and there arent annoying rules about using headphones.10/10 and look forward to doing it again :)

    • Did the 10km in 2017

      Enjoyable 10k. The only downside being a two lap course but that's the nature of the setting. Though being two laps enabled a 5km split on the chip which is good. Big puddles too and sloppy in places but not a lot you can do about that.
    • Did the 10km in 2017

      Great friendly atmosphere, felt like a proper local, community event. Loved the 'shout-outs' from the announcer at the halfway stage and finishing line, using our race numbers to give personalised 'shout-outs'.
    • Did the 5km in 2017

      I'm still a relatively new runner and older than most but was made to feel really part of the run series. The only reason I gave the course an OK was the huge lakes on part of the course! The organisation is tip top, i've never had to wait for a bar code and getting the time immediately is a nice bonus.

      The event was well organised and the route was great although some parts were a bit narrow. The medal and finishers t-shirt were great quality (a proper nike t-shirt that I have since worn many times). Runners and their friends and family can spend the day in Kew Gardens for free.
    • Did the Marathon in 2017

      This was my first marathon! I loved it and I'll definitely be back for more. The course was lovely - starting from Kew Gardens, you go along the river to Hampton Court and then back the other side. Some of it is on trail so it's not a great one for quick times, but for a marathon in London, it's nice and varied and scenic. The one annoying thing was that the marathon and half marathon routes join up towards the end, so I was having to run around lots of other runners when I was completely spent, and when the course narrowed. But on the whole, great day and I'll be back.

A lot of club runners at Shinfield (understandably, as it's run by Reading Roadrunners) so you'll find that it's a very friendly event if you are a first timer. Well organised. A few undulations to deal with, nice country/village run, and the locals will hose you down if it's too hot!!!!

      This is a friendly, well organised (good old Purple Patch Running) scenic run on quiet roads, woodland trails and paths. It's definitely undulating with some steep climbs including 1.5 k from the end and corresponding descents.  Not a PB course but so beautiful and varied! Not a lot of support due to the type of course but passers by clapped and the marshals were excellent. The massive cake selection at the end (it's in aid of the local school and the kids handed out the lovely medals) was a bonus and overall I can't fault it. Would do it again in a heartbeat

    • Did the event in 2018

      This was the first time I had participated in this event it won’t be the last. I signed up on the day, as registration was open from 0800hrs-0900hrs with the 5k and 10k both starting at 0930hrs.Once parked up, it was a 5minute walk from the car park to the local school where the run started, but the walk was well signposted and marshals on hand to guide runners. Registration was easy, £19 on the day for the 10k and £14 on the day for the 5k.once registered, it was time to put my kit into the baggage hut, which was a classroom in the school, marshalled by friendly volunteers.As the 0930 starting approach more runners gathered in the playing field for the warmup and race briefing. Faster runners were encouraged to go towards the front of the field as the run starts down a country lane so  was narrow in places to overtake.The route itself was pleasant, 2 laps round for the 10k, taking in some lovely scenery of farmers fields and running adjacent to the river Thames, and then through private land until entering Wallingford high street to huge crowds and then the route winded up and over the Thames and back out the other side of the high street, past the school for lap 2 where their was water for the 10k runners.At the finish you were given a medal, a banana and some much needed water as it was a very hot day.all the marshalls were superb, and kept a close eye on the traffic to keep runners safe as a couple of times you need to cross roads which are not closed, but you always felt safe and it didn’t interrupt your running stride too much.overall, a good event, and one I’ll look to come back to in 2019.

    • Did the event in 2018

      This is an annual event in Basingstoke and as it was local,only £15 to enter and in aid of a good cause, these were all good reasons to enter. The event consisted of a 5k and 10k run, with 2 water stops, all run mainly on grass at Down Grange and there was a good turnout of over 800 runners. Bib numbers were sent out several weeks before the event and there was adequate parking nearby. The event was compared by a local radio station and there was a good atmostphere with good spectator and marshalling. The route for the 10k was a 2 lap course and was reasonably flat although the grass was a little bit long in places. I had competed in the Rungatwick half marathon the previous Sunday and felt a little jaded. Never a great fan of lapped courses but once over the halfway mark i was homeward bound. A medal,bottle of water and snack were handed out at the finish line for a good effort of 53.52- not my fastest. An enjoyable event and will do again next year

      A good course but it would have been useful to have had marshalls in a couple of places, especially towards the end of the race where both my sister and myself (separately) went over the bridge towards the town centre instead of along the river.  The Guildford "finish" area could also have been marked a bit more clearly.  However, the logistics of parking at Guildford train station and catching the train to Woking worked well and it was good having the staggered start.
    • Did the event in 2018

      We had a fabulous walk. Registration and set off was very well managed.A true course length would have been appreciated. It was 26.5km not 25km. Hard to do that last extra 1.5kms.A few portaloos on the way would have been appreciated as there isnt anywhere along the route to find a bush

      Organiser replied:
      Thanks for your feedback Jo - glad to hear that you had a fabulous walk. Sorry that the course was slightly longer than advertised - as people were fundraising we had to ensure that the course didn't come up short! We measured it to be a little over 25km but are aware that people using watches to measure the route on the day have recorded it longer. There were toilets available in pubs along the route. I'm sorry the signage for these wasn't bold enough for you to see.
    • Did the event in 2018

      We had a lovely walk on Saturday in beautiful surroundings, however it was a challenge for us to do the 25km and so when we realised we had another 2km to go it was a struggle and put an edge on the ending for us. It would have been useful to put up some km markers along the way as you do with other events.We were surprised at how few entries there were and felt that we were very much on our own for the majority of the walk, maybe some more higher profile advertising needed? An extra toilet or two would have been appreciated too as it was a struggle to find somewhere suitable.Is it possible to know how much of our entry money goes to the charity too please?Many thanks to all those who volunteered their time to make this event happen.

    5KM, 10KM or 20KM of BRUTAL running at Pyestock!

    The race starts with a very fast run out into the dry Zig Zag Gully and down to the little switch-back hill. Then onto the mud trail, into the Lily Pond to get nice and soggy before a succession of 3 short hills. Then wade through the elephant grass, race through the shallow river and into a bog and linier marsh - which cleverly gets deeper as the race progresses!

      Great organisaton and course as always.  Too slow to get everyone through the obsticles in the first 2 to 3k. Should 5k and 10k starts be staggered perhaps ?

      Excellent organisation as ever, questions answered promptly via the FB page. Ran with daughter (her first Brutal) she could be heard exclaiming her love for the mud during the race - she will be back for sure. Totally recommend Brutal to everyone.

    • Did the 5K in 2018

      I: had never ran this race: therefore hadn't done a recce: on the day there were few sign posts of where the venue was: the race itself despite the warnings of uneven surfaces had atthe start a narrow place: by the route master bus: I noticed half way in the race that 'some of the 10k runners' had gotten lost lack of Marshall, or clear sign posts distinguishing where to follow the route: good pilates and physio - massage: radio jackie: the event needed stalls to create a better atmosphere: nhs should-as they appeared as a sponsor-have made an effort to be there especially as their emyiasis is on.'mental health':Lastly I like to know my race time: having expected to-now receive a link with the time? I did see a time as i was near the finishing line:
    • Did the 5K in 2018

      The set up and activities surrounding the race were really impressive. Such a shame it wasnt advertised locally as turnout looked to be quite low.We didnt realise the SUP you had to register beforehand and it wasnt near the event with no signage on where to go.The running course wasnt as I thought it would be, with all the beautiful grounds at Syon it felt like the run was on the outskirts. Course wasnt great either. Very narrow spaces for runners at the start. Potholes! I managed to sprain my ankle.At the end there was no sign of St. Johns ambulance? Or medical tent.I eventually asked someone if there were any ice packs, was given one with no interest in the fact Id injured myself.Such a shame as it promised to be a fantastic event and family day out which meant parents could run whilst kids amused themselves.Please sort the course out and use all of the scenic gardens and advertise it locally.
    • Did the 10K in 2018

      I can't fault this as a race. It was low key and very relaxed with one of the smaller fields I've run in for such an event! And what a location!! One of the prettiest and most interesting routes I've ever done for a 10k I think. Plus a goodie bag which I wasn't expecting for such a low entry price - and the coffee and refreshments available to buy were excellent and very good value for money. I don't often run trail routes but this was a very nice one...there were plenty of warnings about inevitable holes and ruts...plus very sensibly on such a hot day, water was made available at a couple of points. I don't normally like 'loop' courses but there was so much to keep you interested going round I didn't notice the repetition of the route. I really cannot fault the whole experience so thank you!

    • Did the event in 2018

      I did the 10 k run option this year, after doing the aquathlon last year (can't swim at the moment due to wound on leg).  This is a multi-sport event with races starting off at different times, the 5 and 10 k runs were at 1000 am.Registration was easy, you can collect your number the day before (did this as local to me).  However, the timing chip wasn't available until the next day, but there was no queue to collect this.  There's no official baggage storage (most people leave these in their cars or in transition), but if you've come by tube/bike for the run you can leave it under the stairs by registration.The race starts by the lake, with the 5 k (one lap) and 10 k  (two) legs going together.  There were only 26 in the 10 k, so it's not too crowded.  The run initially goes around the lake, and then loops around the Merchant Taylors school sports field.  It's funny going past the pavillion whilst the criket teams are warming up, last year it was Middlesex and Sussex 2nd XIs there.  The grass surface is good for running and there are some nice long straights.  However, quite a bit is unshaded, so it can be a bit hot on the run.  You then head off for a second loop, and there is a water station as you start this.  There's only really support at the start/end/transition area, but the marshals around the course are all very good.  The DJ is enthusiastic as well.The medal is decent enough for a budget event, and a bottle of water is handed to you at the end.  There's a nice atmopshere and feel about the event, there's still a lot going on as people are coming in from the bike and tri events (having runners doing the 70.3 tri overtaking you at speed is quite humbling).  As there are permanent changing facilities, there's quite a few toilets available and the upstairs cafe/bar is lovely.  There's a reasonable amount of parking available, and not too far from the tube station at Moor Park.  All in all, it's a nice small multi-sport event, would probably do again as it's local, but may tri the aquathlon or swim next time.

      PROS:- the medal is BEAUTIFUL and ENORMOUS- the course is really pretty and peaceful along the river path- relaxed and friendly atmosphere- happy, helpful marshalls/volunteers- easy to get to- registration in a leisure centre was easy and plenty of access to loos- no pressure as you do as many out-and-backs as you like within the six hours- did I mention the MASSIVE and STUNNING medal?! CONS:None. Brilliant race. Go sign up. Go. Now.
    • Did the event in 2018

      Definitely one of, if not the most, friendly and supportive event I've done.  I managed five laps in the heat of what is just over 5km loop "out and back" along the river.It is along the Thames in Walton so very scenic and the "out and back" approach allows friends and supporters multiple opportunities to see you, as well as runners encouraging each other as you keep passing.Access to drink station (with sweets) at the start/finish was good, if a little awkward to re-fuel without losing momentum.  Otherwise really great event with a superb medal!
    • Did the event in 2018

      Having done this race in 2017 I was keen to get another Hogwarts medal! I arrived late, but registration stay put for a while after the race brief to pick up the stragglers. Dropped my drink/food/drop bag down at the tuck shop. There's a tent to put your gear and space on the refreshment table for your own drinks/snacks, which I think is really good. It was really hot, so I appreciated having a squash option instead of water, at some point. I tested the RDs first aid skills, as I took a tumble on the first lap and managed to bleed on my daughter's Slytherin robe (and yes, it WAS hot running in that robe/shirt/tie!). I got hugs and sympathy and was sent on my way again, with a handfull of jelly babies and a bottle of water. These races are fun and friendly, the timed events are great for everyone, as you can do as many or as few laps as you please, at a pace that suits you. Everyone gets the same cheering and the same medal, and, as Rik says, "we're all winners". Thoroughly recommend Phoenix races. Oh, did I mention there is a pub right by the start/finish, perfect for a recovery drink and some post race fuelling.

      A very well organised event in the outstandingly beautiful Chantry Woods near Guildford. Marshalling was brilliant and course was challenging (very hilly) but easy to follow. Parking was straight forward and free with toilets nearby. Only small gripe was that medals were identical for both 5k and 10k finishers, I gather they have been different in previous years.

      The ultimate endorsement; I will definitely be taking part again next year!

    • Did the event in 2018

      This race was pure and simply great fun.  It was a hard 10k with some steep uphills but that allowed for some great downhill runs through the woods and hills of Surrey.Marshall support was great throughout and I never felt at any point that I would get lost.  A downhill finish meant it was fast towards the end and the medal is in the shape of a snail.  What more could you ask for.

      Organiser replied:
      Hi Andrew, Thanks for the review, we hope to see you for harder than snails later in the year!
    • Did the event in 2018

      This is a fanastic off road race with a couple of serious hills making even the 5km course a real challenge. I loved the route, which was very well marshelled, and there was great support at the finish. My one word of advice would be to make sure you're near the front at the start line, which is different from the finish line - I didn't realise this and got stuck near the back so ended up having to weave through slower runners for the first km. Nonetheless it was a great race and I look forward to coming back next year.
