In short: Nice event but oevrpriced In full: Second year of doing this and it is an excellent wee race. Had a sprained ankle so probably shouldnt have run this so found the course pretty challenging particularly on the downward trip. Organisation and friendliness wise it cant be faulted much altough with one wee pointer....they need to put a marhsal at the turn up the tough stairs climb where it turn in the last mile as I completly missed the turn last year and almost did it again this year.(as did rhe winner last year.didnt seem to slow him down much though)
Price wise I still think its really expensive and yes i concede htere are nioce touches and prizes but Im struggling to work out where 36 quid a head goes if you break it down considering it is niether chipped not requires road closures....other than tha a nice little race
In short: Another Trionium Triumph In full: Dr Rob has a savage streak but like Box Hill another tough race but the scenery, the camaraderie and the enthusiasm of the marshalls and spectators made this very special. I ache but I am smiling and I will be back. A very big thank you to all the Trionium team and all the marshalls and spectators. Oh and I love the goodies at the end and all the quirks and special touches that make a Trionium event stand out - truly superb. Date of review: March 7, 2011
In short: I hate hills but somehow loved this race! In full: - Great organisation, brilliant motivating marshalls, Jelly Babies at every water station! - Very tough course, I ache in new places but amazing scenery and picturesque throughout the course. - I was well towards the back of the field but was still cheered on as much as the front runners and there was great comaraderie between all the runners. - Amazing goody bag; spectacular medal, technical t-shirt, glass paper-weight and best of all free full English breakfast!
I still hate hills but I'll see you next year! Date of review: March 7, 2011
In short: Tough but Rewarding In full: Doctor Rob, you did it yet again! Fantastic organisation, horrible hills made bearable by enthusiastic marshalls a very friendly field of runners. A swim and a fry-up afterwards, what's not to like? My knee hurts now, but I'll be back for the Picnic. Date of review: March 7, 2011
In short: Beautifully hard In full: A fantastic race in near perfect conditions with outstanding organisation. The course is extremely testing but pays back all the effort with the satisfaction of running over beautiful tracks alongside the friendliest competitors you will ever come across. Many grateful thank you's to the marshalls. A jelly beaned fuelled extravaganva of a race! Date of review: March 7, 2011
