In short: Worth travelling the distance for. Picturesque/scenic & thoroughly enjoyable In full: Like many others, missed the start. Dont think it was anybobys fault. Thought I left the hall in plenty of time, but got "log jammed" going down the pathway beside the school. Really enjoyed the course (except for the "estate" sections), and great mix of "ups" & "downs". Nice to do most of the ups on the way though. I must be strange as I thought weather was fine, not too cold, and the snow made it a pleasure to be out getting rid of some of the Xmas excess. I also would praise the Marshalls who were all cheerful & helpful, and was pleasantly surprised to see the groups of spectators, in the village 2-3 miles from the finish. Gave me a little, well needed boost.Will do it again next year, for certain. Date of review: January 4, 2006
In short: Excellent In full: An opportunity to banish the last of the New Year excesses out of the system. Pan flat out and back with excellent organisation Thankyou, I'll be back Date of review: January 4, 2006
In short: If you're a glutton for punishment or just happy to finish soaked and covered in mud you'll love it. In full: This run over the Cornish moors is great fun and the scenery is spectacular. Hilly, rocky, and very, very boggy - so was pleased to finish with both running shoes still attached! Gale force winds really helped on the way back! Marshalls who stood out in it were great.

In short: Completely changed my view about big field races. Loved the atmosphere and felt like a hero. My time was not so heroic, but pb is definitely possible on this flat course. Date of review: January 3, 2006
In short: Great day for both my wife and myself. Pleasantly surprised by the beautiful countryside. Pulled a personnel best out the bag which always leaves you with a glowing feeling. The young guys and girls in army gear were nothing but pleasant and helpful. Date of review: January 3, 2006
In short: Have done every one of these and will keep that up. Great run. In full: Only problem is parking. I think they now have too many runners for the area. 500 would be a better max. But please let those that have run before have first choice!!!
In short: My first 10k and a great experience - Thanks Telford! In full: I was more than happy being in the last 5 with a 67 min time, encouraged by marshalls and other runners along the way, including the fast ones so thanks for that. I'll definately be up for this aain next year! Date of review: January 3, 2006
