In short: My first 10k. Fantastic friendliness. User friendly. Hard course, but a great acheivement to finish. Would recomend it to new runners, just for the support from the other runners. Thanks to the copius route markers and Andy Fay for organising Date of review: February 22, 2006
In short: Everyone was made welcome at the start, middle and end. What really made my day in the bad weather was the finish when the marshall clled out my number and name and bid me well done! Date of review: February 22, 2006
In short: Have run the route twice now, and it gets better each time. In full: A good course, not the flattest but not the hilliest either. Underfoot is good until the last run up, whereby it can get slippery.
Very scenic, so the time passes very quickly, I shaved 3mins, 15 seconds off my PB. I think knowing the course helped. I enjoy the course as it is only one lap.
In short: The Best in the Wild West In full: A little gem! Challenging course and always a bit of weather to contend with, but lovely warm welcome and real cawl! Well organised and stoic marshalls who always managed a smile and some words of encouragement. Thanks v m and see you next year. Date of review: February 22, 2006
In short: Wet, windy, very cold and muddy In full: Good start to the run but once you get to the 10 mile marker you could see the problem that were head of you. The mud grass was very dangerous as I did see a few runners slipping or falling in the mud. It would be good if the road could be be used for that part of the race, as it would stop runners for slipping and falling Date of review: February 22, 2006
In short: Cold, wet, windy and mud In full: A great run, despite the weather. Thank you to the gentleman who picked me up out of the mud and let me wipe my hands on his fleece - his kindness was a real help over the last mile, when I was feeling wet, cold and covered in mud.

In short: Great run to set the tone for the rest of the year In full: Well organised race over a diverse scenery (nice burnt out car!)with one or two challenging inclines. Pre and post race free massage tent; what more can a runner aske for? Got a PB, so will be back next year Date of review: February 22, 2006
