This was my first run at this 10 mile race. The miserable weather didn't help the day. Starting on a business park means there is ample car parking which was well marshalled. when I arrived the toilet queues were really long and this subsequently led to a 15 min delay to the race start. There was little organisation when collecting race numbers which meant I'd queued for a while before someone told me there were separate queues for surnames. A few simple signs would've helped.

The first 3 1/2 miles were just around the buisness park which wasn't much fun before heading on a pathy across fields and then on country lanes. Marshalls tried their best on a miserable day and there was virtually no local support. Water was provided but in plastic cups rather than bottles. I guess this helps keep costs down though.

At the finish there was a nice medal plus fruit (bananas, apples, oranges), chocolate bars and bottled water.

I believe there were many more runners this year fromlate bookings due to recently cancelled races. This caused problems with toilets. Maybe have a few more available for next year? Clear signs for where to collect your race numbers depending on surname would make it better. If the weather had been nicer I think this would've been a much nicer day. It's a big effort to put on such a large event so all in all Maidenhead Athletic Club did well.

Great start to the Easter weekend!

Last minute entry following Reading cancellation. This is a locally organised, long standing race that is over an interesting distance and on a bank hol too!

Route is a few loops of the business park to start, you get a good feel for the finish straight (downhill :)) but then it’s out onto country lanes and through one field for the rest. 

Exceptional marshalling especially as being so rural there aren’t many local people out - the ones that were were great though! 

Mosltly flat but the railway bridge at mile 8.2 isn’t very welcome...At the end it’s a very good medal and real chocolate not some random protein bar! 

Warning - car parks get busy so get there early and start loo queuing ASAP. 

Happy Easter :)

I love to run this every Good Friday!

This 10 milers is a real test - psychologically and physically. I love it!

It starts with a couple of laps of the business park and then heads around farm land and lanes, past the White Waltham airport, over the railway line through a field and a downhill last mile to the finish.

There is a lovely Japanese lady who cheers from outside her house and I have seen every year for 10 years!

And the tea and cakes, plus the massage at the end is brilliant.

A reason to look forward to Easter!
