In short: My 2nd time on this, tough first half, excellent organisation and good local support. In full: Reliable start to every year. Not too 'clubby' and a commentator who'd done their research - he even made reference to runners' previous times - brilliant touch, well done! Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: I'm sure those hills had grown in the second lap. In full: Fantstic race, very well organised. Excellent marshalls who encouraged all the way, especially up the hills! Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: Muddy and great fun! In full: Forgot to look at the course map pre-race and misjudged the finnish - having to run past the finnish and run aother 600-700 yds was a bit of a shock! Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: Oh how I hated that hill.... In full: Have to say the marshalling was absolutely 100% Thank you so much to the many people stood out in the cold for so long.
Hated the hill and being in the last 25% of the race choking on all the fumes from the traffic. Nearly cried when I saw that second hill after the drinks station at 5km. Thought the finishing momento was dissapointing - but certainly not enough to distract from an great morning out. (Awesome venue - have NFU got any jobs going?!) Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: This was my first ever race in 2005 - it was even better than I remembered. Fair course (up and down), good organisation with friendly marshalls and fellow competitors. Date of review: January 22, 2006
In short: like the old roman 9 - a class event In full: As an OAP over 65 runner with long experience I rate this as a great outing on a winters morning. well into the big league of races Date of review: January 22, 2006
