In short: Tough for the first 8 miles but an excellent challange In full: The first 8 miles were a killer but the bit through the old town was great and the last 3 or 4 miles are nice. Although mile 12-13 got very dull!
Excellent look forward to next year! Date of review: March 16, 2005
In short: Brilliant organisation before, after and during - all very reassuring. In full: I thought this was brilliantly organised - I had utmost confidence in the organisers from start to finish. My offical time was within 5 secs of my watch time which i thought was great (especially compared to the MINUTE difference that was recorded in the last half i went to) The ending is indeed challenging as when i was at mile 10 i could hear the winning man being announced! The last mile was definetly the longest ever - you can hear everything going on at the finish yet never seem to get there yourself - but this all adds to the fun! Extreemely fast results service up on the website - all in all a good all round event. Date of review: March 16, 2005
In short: Value for money, wet and muddy- NOT a PB course, and not one to miss In full: This race is so much fun! There are haybales to climb, rivers to wade in, ditches to jump in, and tyres to climb over! Definitely not a PB course, and absolutely not a course to wear your good shoes to- in fact I ditched my shoes and socks at the end! Fabulous value for money- at the end you get a T-shirt, medal and goody bag! My second one, definitely not my last Date of review: March 16, 2005
In short: female, 55, back to running after break of 15years so was personal challenge. So enjoyed it, much better than tackling a straight road event for first timer as the only pressure was to have fun and finish. I did both without a thought of PB,s. Date of review: March 16, 2005
In short: Flat wide course with PB potential In full: I thought the course would be dull, being at silverstone, but it was ok and the track was a good surface with pleanty of space to avoid crowding. Date of review: March 16, 2005
In short: Blitzed my time predictions and had a wonderful time. Flat course, fantastic scenery for anybody with any interest in motor racing - all in all an historic venue! Date of review: March 16, 2005
In short: The best and hardest race I've ever done In full: This was my first Grizzly. Having marshalled last year in the wind & rain and watched everyone still appearing to enjoy themselves (how?!) I needed to have my own experience!
Wow, I'm not sure that anything can really prepare you for how tough this is. So many changes of terrain from beach to bog, climbs and cliff-tops. The challenge, camaraderie, marshals, wine gums … made the whole experience the best I've had in my short(ish) running career. Can't wait to pick up the 2006 entry form at the Seaton half!
In short: A really good race. I was worried that the racing track would be boring but it wasn't at all. It's great to be in a completely traffic free route, and there's plenty of space for all runners, unlike some races in London. I highly recommend this race Date of review: March 16, 2005
In short: Very, very good! In full: Well organised from start to finish. Nice to get a finishing pack without the usual pile of leaflets that I don't want! Very good day out. Date of review: March 16, 2005
