In short: One of the most rewarding and challenging races I have ever done. In full: The Mudcrew know how to organise and run a race. The whole team do an extremely amazing job with the race, from start to finish. The pre-race organisation (information sent to you),parking on the day, safety checks pre-race, marshals, check points, feed station, and the support at the finish - everything was superb. A really great event for running clubs to have a weekend racing event as there is something for everyone (11, 20, 32 or 64 mile races). It's a brutal race but the scenery and support along the way is amazing. Highly recommend. Date of review: August 18, 2015
In short: Amazing Friendly Challenging Exciting Must Do Event!! In full: This race has it all; MudCrew organisation second to none; all checkpoints had medics and excellent crew keen to assist in any way. From start to finish its an awesome event; life feels void afterwards as it's over and done with. Can't wait for the Plague 2016! Date of review: August 18, 2015
In short: This is anforgettable event. If you're a pb freak this race isn't for you. However if you want a challenge amidst beautiful scenery then you should come here. And if you come once you'll want to challenge yourself and try to beat last years time In full: The course is challenging but the feeling of satisfaction as, having completed the hilly off-road sections, you gear up for the final flat k around one of the most beautiful harbours in Scotland is amazing. The race is well organised with friendly and encouraging marshals and and excellent post race catering in the marquee at the finishing line. If you do this race once you'll want to do it again!

In short: Mud Crew Yeah! In full: My longest distance yet,100k. The support, banter and encouragement you get from start to finish and the genuine joy from Mud Crew when you cross that line is unrivalled. They spare no expense looking after you. Then there is the after party....other coastal trail race organisers don't come close to what Mud Crew give you. Date of review: August 17, 2015
In short: My favourite race of the year In full: With the organisation of a Swiss watch factory, the support that could only come from residents of God’s (or whichever fiction entity you believe in) own county and the beautiful coastal views, this is one of the best races of the year.
Make no mistake, it is a tough race, it’ll make your legs ache for days after, but it’s worth it. Every uphill step was forgotten about as I sat on the grass enjoying my Cornish salami pizza watching the last few runners cross the finishing line with huge smiles on their faces, vowing never to do it again, but after they’d caught their breath form the last long climb they were soon talking about stepping up a distance in 2016.
This race is addictive! Another fantastic Mudcrew event.
In short: New legs for runner 283! In full: My first run of this type and distance and I may have been spoiled by how well he event was organised and marshalled. Stunning location is only matched by the brutality of the unrelenting shifts in gradient, my legs are not working how they should at the moment. Just the sort of challenge I was looking for though, 32 mile next year perhaps? Epic in scale but intimate in character, great effort from all involved. Date of review: August 17, 2015
In short: if Mud Crew Events did lager, it would definitely be the best lager in the world. In full: Absolutely stonkingly awesome weekend. Amazing coastline and ascent/descents to really warm you up but with distances to suit everyone (11 mile, 20 mile, 32 mile and 64 mile) and very generous cut off times on the 11,20 and 32 miler options, there's something for everyone. This year I just did the 32 mile option as was just a week after NDW100 so legs weren't fresh but am so glad I went. Amazing event village with camping, bar, and food outlets.. felt more like a mini festival with bit of a trot chucked in for good measure. Loved it! Well done Mud Crew Events Date of review: August 17, 2015
In short: The toughest and best race I've done In full: As a trail newbie, the RAT was my biggest challenge to date, yet I managed to absolutely love it. Those views and the support from other runners and the incredible support crew made the miles tick by slowly but surely. Brilliantly organised by MudCrew as usual, will be coming back for more.

In short: Awesome race run by awesome people with a clear passion for what they do. In full: this is an iconic race in stunning scenery but it's the mud crew organisers and volunteers that really make it what it is. The organisation beforehand and on the day is the best I have seen on a race. There was a wealth of experience from the marshals who were all experienced ultra trail runners and more than happy to share their knowledge with you. This truly was an awesome event.

In short: Great atmosphere and organisation, lovely park 10k! In full: Viccy Park is a nice place for a run and this is a great race which mixes smooth organisation, a good course, welcoming atmosphere and a bit of a colourful party feel. (And free bagels!) My third Pride 10k and I'm sure I'll be back. Congrats on another great event. Date of review: August 16, 2015
In short: Brilliant in every aspect from run to marshalling and organisation In full: The camaraderie of this multi distance event is even more inspiring than the truly stunning scenery. A challenge whichever distance you do. I have done 32, 64 and 20 miles in that order. Be back for 32 next year. Date of review: August 16, 2015
In short: Outstanding event doesn't even come close! In full: My first ultra and was amazing. Brilliant support across the board, well organised and the views, wow!!! Would recommend to anyone and will be back. Date of review: August 16, 2015
