In short: good fast trail race with a few steep surprises In full: vests for men shirts for women finishers.i heard a few men ask for a shirt and were refused which was bad as it does say shirts to all finishers.anyway everything else was great really enjoyed the trails and the folks in fancy dress.ive never been beaten by darth vader before.
In short: good short race to run off the the xmas pud! In full: very good short race,but the finnish area is very cahotic .....as every year...you would of thought the organisers would of learned!!!! Date of review: December 30, 2005

In short: fast results and good photos on www.dk10k.co.uk shame about the horse brass fiascos, then again wasn't why i raced in the first place, good support, echo the 3-4 long mile and 4-5 short mile Date of review: December 29, 2005
In short: Good race, but more information needed In full: It was a good route and an enjoyable, friendly atmosphere. However, as a first-timer for this race I could have done with more signs and times; where was registration in the pub? (upstairs, as it happened, but I had to ask). When and where was the hot toddy afterwards? (I never found out) When were the results being given out? (1 p.m., but again I had to ask). Date of review: December 29, 2005
In short: Superb scenary In full: Fast,scenic course. Queued for nearly 2mins to cross the finish line and then was asked by the officials what time I'd done which was very strange!! Date of review: December 29, 2005
In short: A nice change. In full: An earlier start, say 1030am, may help solve the problem of tourists on the walls at the same time as runners. Marshalls handled the situation very well. Date of review: December 29, 2005
In short: Tough race not for the fainthearted In full: Organisation was a bit muddled runners just going out in spurts. The race started with lots of runners still going getting to the start. Lots of Undulating !! when does this become hilly it felt hilly to me. Maybe Im a lightweight Date of review: December 29, 2005
In short: Excellent race - great atmosphere and support from the locals. Thoroughly enjoyed it. In full: Ran this with my friend who only took up running earlier this year to do the Great North Run and persuaded her to do this to prove that not all races are like the GNR! She had a great day and knocked a spectacular 20 minutes off her pb! Date of review: December 29, 2005
In short: Tough course. Good laugh. In full: Funny old race - tough and challenging yet not taken too seriously either. A very nice event to be part of. Really enjoyable. Lovely scenery. Competitors all chatty until Yew Tree Steps then suddenly reticent. Great marshalls and officials and great comrades. Thank you all see you next year.
In short: Do this run and get a trophy In full: I liked the Mars bar and juice in the goody bag. Better than usual crap you get (malt bread, who likes malt bread?). Trophy thing was a little odd though. Course was a little strange in parts, more hills than expected, houses and then the country but 10 miles is 10 miles.
In short: This was my first 10k and am so excited that I managed to do it in a respectable time. I am not a member of a club, but still felt very welcome and just knowing I was running whilst surrounded by beautiful mountains (even if I didn't look at them!) Date of review: December 28, 2005
