In short: amazing race from start to finish, unforgetable experience In full: This race is very tough and that is what makes it so brilliant, the views are beautiful, the Cornish Coast path is absolutely stunning. The marshals are second to none with their encouragement, humour and advice. kept well fed and watered, great pre-race talk by Mimi Anderson. Every runner happily smiling through our shared pain, great camaraderie. 10/10 Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: My Favourite 10K In full: The TT10K 2014 was even better than 2013: you can tell that the organisers are passionate runners as the event was brilliant. It's a stunning route on both road and trail with a perfect balance of hills and flat. Great goodie bag and tech t shirt, for a low entry fee. Medal is fab too. The real highlight of the race was definitely the fantastic support from the marshals and the villagers: despite the weather they were out in force and really kept the runners going. Can't wait for 2015! Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: An achievement I'll never forget, great support from crew and fellow runners. In full: Mud Crew know how to organise an event and this was everything I could of hoped for and more. A friendly, encouraging and fun crew which supported, motivated and attended to our every need! Cheered between checkpoints by mobile crews, ice lollies, gels, banter..... It was all there. It was my first Ultra and I got lots of congratulatory hugs along the way which gave me the determination to finish it! All the follow runners are supportive and friendly too. One not to miss out on.

In short: Tough as old boots but a fantastic event In full: Organisation is superb, it's a very tough run but so enjoyable. Had wanted to do this for years, finally got round to doing it. Will ache for days!!! Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: Great scenery and a challenging course. In full: This race was great value. A good training run for those autumn marathons and it was nice to have a race where pace watching was fairly meaningless - slow uphill and fast downhill, and a bit more strategy came into the actual racing.
There was a great mix of scenery, forests, quiet country roads, fields, and on one occasion I was sent sprawling on my face by a wayward tree root, but that's part of the fun of these trail runs. The water stops were nicely spread out, though on a hotter day I do think I might have struggled a bit.
I'd recommend this race to anybody looking for a challenging and varied run, or anybody who is tired of racing on the roads. It does get tough and the hills do take their toll, but there is a great sense of camaraderie between the runners; thanks to the Trentham runner who helped me through those difficult last few miles.
One minor complaint would be that I didn't know where to find any water at the finish. Next year though I'll know to bring my wallet and have a pint at the bar, much more refreshing after a hard run :) Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: The worst ever orginised half ever In full: it was so badly orginised it was comical
Moved from a city centre course to a rural course with only 2 weeks notice. Don't you need to acquire a license more than 2 weeks in advance ?
No Marshall's at any point, only the tinest route markers to direct you.
No water at the end of the race.
Startt/ finish banner looked like it had been made by a seven year old.
1 person got lost and had to get a taxi back to the finish.
Another person got lost and had to phone his mom for directions.
Mile markers appeared to be stuck on the back of cereal boxes.
Apart from that really enjoyed the course and the comical organisation made for surprisingly a great half marathon. Don't miss it next year just for the unbeliveably poor organisation. Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: A great day for summer running In full: On a great day for summer running this lovely scenic course has plenty of ups and downs. Well-organised and marshalled by Burnham Joggers and, where I was running, a friendly bunch of runners. Never chatted so much on the way round a run. Date of review: August 17, 2014
In full: Trail events don't get much better: stunning scenery and meticulous planning combine to create one of the best events I have and will ever take part in. There are a number of options to accommodate the insane endurance of the overnight 64mile plague to a more beginner friendly/ shorter 11 mild white rat. This part of Cornwall, although off the beaten trail is truly beautiful and the coast path provides the perfect vista. An event run by runners who truly understand. Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: Mind blowing and body taxing In full: Fantastic run with the most incredible scenery to match anything anywhere else in the world. The Med Crew organisers and the marshals were amazing. Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: World Class Trail event like no other In full: Roseland peninsula is a stunning setting for this event, which is not for the faint hearted. Mudcrew organise this to perfection and set an really friendly atmosphere to the thing. This is a stand out event and a highlight in the race calender that can't be missed.

In short: Second time of doing the 11. Will be back as both time's has had it's different challange's. Great feeling of acheivment when I finished. Not for the faint hearted! Date of review: August 17, 2014
In short: Awesome! In full: Magnificent scenery along the Roseland Heritage coast of Cornwall, this seriously tough race tests the runner throughout. Great organisation, friendly marshals, terrific atmosphere at the race village (weekend camping). Glad I did it, but 32 miles was enough for me - hats off to those who do the 64 mile Plague!
