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: 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
In short: Another good year... In full: Brilliant, what a excellent run!!! You won't get your PB, but this is a nice tough course.. If you are up for a good time and can handle 8 miles and don't mind getting muddy then do this run, it is one my most favorite run I enter each year.
In short: As flat as you can get, ideal weather conditions - loads of PBs In full: Very well organised. Plenty of encouraging marshalls. Great to have warm showers at the end. Enjoyed the race, and am waiting for next year's application form. Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: excellent fun In full: well organised only slight route problem was the long wait at the first wet ditch.Lots of people cheated here and ran around rather than wait.You should be ashamed of yourselves!! Must go faster next year so I can get a hot shower.By the time I finished they were colder than the water out on the course! Date of review: November 13, 2005
