In short: Nice flat-ish course with plenty of marshals and decent facilities. In full: Apart from the 10 minute delay to the start due to late entries (it was suggested that this would be addressed for races 2 and 3), this was a good, smooth race with lots of encouragement from the marshals. Nice down-slope (not really a hill :) finish for shaving off those extra few seconds. Slightly odd to be warming up amidst a caravan rally, but it all adds to the mix ;) Date of review: June 3, 2005
In short: A very well organised friendly race. I travelled a long way to do it to celebrate my 40th birthday (sad I know) but I'm glad I did. In full: As already mentioned it was a bit of a clelebratory run for me and I wasn't hoping for a great time as RW had classed it as "a tough off roader". However I did get a PB which was most surprising and just added to my day even if the weather did try to put a dampner on it. Infact it was a lot worse than damp as the heavens opened and thunder crashed above! I would thoroughly recommend anyone to enter this very friendly, slightly challenging in places, well organised race. Well done to all cocerned. Date of review: June 3, 2005

In short: Nice race with many plus points and few bad ... well worth the trip In full: Great organisation and enjoyable race .. or at least it would have been had i been fully fit. Appreciate the early start to miss the midday sun ... should any decide to arrive this summer. Course is quick, although mile 9 & 10 are slightly uphill and take there toll. Overall great race and well worth the trip.
In short: A quick course although the hills were a little more noticeable than I expected. In full: Well organised generally with good car parking facilities and no major problems. Date of review: June 2, 2005
In short: Well organised, great scenery (most of it) and googy bag contest better than most. One of the best unless after PB thanks to splendid climb back to Hoe in last mile. Date of review: June 2, 2005
