In short: A testing course, mixing long steep climbs with fast downhill sections. Gloroious scenary at the end and quite technical in assesing performance expectations Date of review: September 3, 2007
In short: Tough race but very enjoyable In full: Well organised, nice scenic route, tough first 4 miles and bit of a climb on the last mile (testing) thoroughly enjoyable and one to add to my race calendar. Excellent tee shirt. Date of review: September 2, 2007
In short: In short, superb event - a credit to the organisers In full: Wooo. The first 4 miles were a beast but fantastic route, the marshalling was top-notch, really well-organised water stations, great start and finish, friendly atmosphere.
I decided a year ago that I was never going to be as quick as I used to be so I would do local races that are a bit different. I'm so glad I did - I bloody loved this event.
A really good t-shirt to top it off. Date of review: September 2, 2007
In short: Tough but great! In full: Managed the hills better this year than last but they still beat me (but only just). I'll have to come back next year to try and crack them! Fantasic organisation,atmosphere and marshalls once again! Date of review: September 2, 2007
In short: When the starter tells you its going to be hard you know its a toughy! In full: Year after year I go back and face the first four miles of uphill - at least this year the training had been better. This course is certainly not personal best material but it is an excellent distance, very well organised and finishes in a lovely country park. Add to this a fun run that the kids always enjoy and you have a great event. Will I go back next year? Of course! Date of review: September 2, 2007
