In short: Good effort, could try harder. In full: Second time here for me, and all in all a pretty good race. The best pre-race info pack ive received in a very long time. The car park was somewhat further away from the start this year which was a bit of a pain, the other car park they gave us the option of using was 2.5m away!
Lots of shouts from marshalls saying 'keep left or you will be disqualified' at the begininng. Im not sure about that.... if they start the race on such narrow roads then do they expect people to be only two abreast? No i dont think so.
Saw lots of people with commemorative souvenir tumblers, sadly I had to make do with the crappy t-shirt.
Offered good views of the Hemel Hempstead oil fire. Date of review: December 15, 2005
In short: ho ho ho In full: Brilliant - great organisation, friendly marshalls and despite the hills the scenery helped me blow 2 mins off my flat PB. Am now a convert to off road racing. Date of review: December 15, 2005

In short: Challenging course!!! In full: The summary says it all. Challenging it certainly was! Slight downhill for the first mile just to lead you into a pace too fast for the remainder of the race. Then uphill for the next 4, downhill again then the last two are uphill. I had nothing in the tank after 8, will pace myself better for next year knowing what the course is like! Started late this year, I assume because of the late arrival of buses to the start. Last half mile was through some very slippery and muddy forest tracks. Course got the better of me this year so I will have to come back!!!! Date of review: December 15, 2005
In short: A demanding, but enjoyable course In full: I found it very challenging and will certainly be doing it again. I found the organization of this event, to be of a very high standard. Date of review: December 14, 2005
