In short: first timer but will definitely be back next year In full: Really enjoyed the run, perfect for husband and baby to investigate the park while I was plodding round. Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: Not a fantastic event but not a bad event either. In full: Could have been better marshalled around the Sports club area. Too many people wandering around in the way of runners. Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: A fast, well organised half with plenty of water/sponge stations In full: Plus points include excellent organisation and support from the marshalls. Plenty of parking. 5 drinks stations all of which had sponges (a welcome addition with the warm werather). Fairly flat so PB potential - I knocked 8 mins off mine! but there are some gentle climbs over the motorway.
Negative points include the lane at about 11m. Trying to run through a gate broke you from your stride a bit. Coming back through the town centre was busy with traffic and roadworks.
All in all a good, friendly, well organised half Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: Lots of marshalls and lots of water - who could ask for more! In full: As always this event is very well organized, and the abundance of water stations run by the local school children are great. Good support from the local crowd as well make this an enjoyable race with good PB potential Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: excellent In full: Rain stopped just long enough. Those tight packed stones for the trail are hard on the feet, but a good run. several short hard hills to wake you up. 4 Mins off last years time. nearly took a tumble on that down hill just off the fell and back on the track. That would have been some tumble. Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: My first experience of this race: Great atmosphere and a good day out! In full: Although the first 6-7miles offer some long hills, the 2nd half of the race is down-hill or flat and could provide a PB opportunity. Date of review: May 8, 2006
In short: Need 2 start the runners at diff times,or have runners start at positions, was overtaking people who should have started way behind me, and it just slowed me down, became a bit frustrating!!!! Date of review: May 7, 2006
In short: Done this for the last three years and it just gets better and better. It'll be an ever present fixture until I hang up my trainers! In full: Loads of support considering the weather. Marshalls brilliant as always. Scenery fantastic. Topped up my t-shirt cupboard. Thank you to all at Hinckley RC for all your efforts - you really do make it a special event. Thanks and see you next year. Date of review: May 7, 2006
In short: I liked it so much I think i'll join the club! In full: Felt harder than Tough Guy cos' at least you get a rest on Tough Guy! I was envious of the 3 people who Ii saw run up THAT hill even though I walked up faster than them! Marshalling was superb and very friendly. Nice goody bag. Date of review: May 7, 2006
In short: Great village atmosphere and very well organised In full: I'm biased - I live in the next village, but all the same I was very impressed with the organisation of this race. The course has a few mild hills at the start and end that makes it a bit testing and could catch you out. I can't think of anything bad about it - they even got the weather right!

In short: you'll be around the second time before you know it In full: it's a fast course bit a hill near start of each lap but nothing else good for beginer as feel lost on the course. Date of review: May 7, 2006
