In short: Instructions on getting to the venue were poor. In full: I like this event and will do it next year. BUT, directions for getting to the start were awful (if you are doing the event get a map to locate it). Actual start a bit messy, I think there was some confusion over the 2 minutes silence and I never heard a gun/whistle whatever. Good route with a start through the houses before a climb up passed the coking plant! The out in the countryside proving that it isn't grim up north. T shirt at the end was a welcome surprise as I didn't think one was on offer.
In short: Simply putting it...............Awesome!! lots and lots and lots of fun. Loads of variety mud, water, bales. In full: As a note to the organisation; everything fine except the quing in the stream took quite a while, with many a impatient person climbing fences etc. Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: Very well organised, great scenery, will definitely do this one again. In full: First time running a 10 mile race and am glad this was it. Marshalls were Fantastic and encouraged everone that ran passed. The highlight was running up the High street to the finish and people cheering you on from their doorsteps. Gave a great village feel to the race. See you there next year. Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: An excellent Challenge with a capital C In full: Well organised and the conditions on the day were great given the time of year.
Not for the feint-hearted. The distances themselves aren't too challenging, and neither are the uphills (mind you I wasn't going very fast). The challenges are navigating the sharp (downhill) left hand turns on the bike, making sure your legs are used to running up and down hills and getting saving something for the second run.
My first time, competing the race was a long term target for me - from no exercise to the ballbuster tokk me 18 months but was well worth it. Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: A really enjoyable event, well organised. Weather was good, and the use of the sports centre hall is very handy. After the race I took some photos these can be found at Running in Suffolk or http://runningburyblue.blogspot.com/ Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: First Tavy 7 for me - very good, with quality goody bag. In full: Good signs on approach roads. Good route to Sampford Spiney and back; first 2 miles uphill.Sandwitches and cakes available. Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: A mix of water, mud and cow-pat In full: Great fun and great organisation. Really enjoyable event involving many close shaves with mud cow pat and water features. Maybe one extra water station required midway, however, nothing to complain about on this event as it was perfect.
In short: New course this year which made it slight;y longer - more like 9 miles but good fun as usual In full: Goddie bag at the end was a nice touch and some good spot prizes. Good fun - I'll be back next year. Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: Challenging but enjoyable. In full: I can understand the slight misgivings about the loos and the finish (some people like a banner!) but overall a very good race. Date of review: November 13, 2005
