2013 Races and Entry
Start Time : 10:00am, Sunday 15th September 2013
The 10 and 3.5 mile routes follow the same course, but then the 10 mile route breaks off. The first 3.5 miles is a flat course along the river Thames and surrounding fields. Thereafter the course goes up into the Chilterns with some tough hills and beautiful scenery. Deer are often sighted crossing the route and the scenery is wonderful. The course does involve stiles, gates and fences as we use public footpaths for the majority of the event. On the day entrants may not receive a medal.
"14 Thame Runners ran on Sunday as we had included your race as one of our Club Championship events. Everyone remarked how they had enjoyed it and what an interesting course it was. The amount of preparation work you had done......putting up all those signs.........trimming the nettles........etc was very impressive. I can not guarantee we will be back next year (Committee decision) but I will certainly be voting for Medmenham. Cheers" Steve Graham (Membership Secretary - Thame Runners)
"Please can you thank Mike for organising an excellent event. We really enjoyed it and hope to do it again next year. I have done a lot of organising and marshalling myself and would have been proud of the goodwill and helpfulness of the marshalls and back up staff" - Steve Alexander
"Enjoyed yesterday Mike, many thanks to you & the marshals. Reminded me why it's first on my events calendar each year." - Gary Minter
"Many thanks to the organisers - you must have put a lot of time into this one, and it's much appreciated."
"Flat 4 miles meandering around the fields between Medmenham, Mill End and the Thames then the course really started. Hard, steep climb up on to the top of Rotten Row, more meandering through woods before a descent down to Hambledon followed by another climb to the top of Rotten Row and a steep downhill finish."
"I hope this one's on for next year, thoroughly enjoyed it. Many thanks to the organisers - you must have put a lot of time into this one, and it's much appreciated."
"cracking race, lovely day for it and a nice challenging course and I will blame my slow time on the cycle from Reading, clearly nothing to do with the steep hills "
"a bit torturous running past a load of caravanners with their bacon sarnies and cups of tea though!"
