In short: Lots of laughs, lots of sunshine and LOTS of mud! In full: Fabulous fun in the sun - lots and lots of waist deep mud to play in. My only criticism would be that there was far too much running for the first half and not enough mud. Second half made up for it though :) Date of review: June 1, 2009
In short: The best fun I've had in ages In full: This is what running's all about, having fun, getting dirty, not worrying about times (ok so I was nearly last... but that means I had the toughest run of all!) LOVED the bogs - wading through not knowing whether your next step was going to drop you down to your chest, great fun. Is anyone else absolutely covered in insect bites today though?

In short: A lovely, fun, beautiful race but lack of marshalls In full: The race was lovely but there was a severe lack of marshalls. My friend hurt herself and I had to run on for at least a mile before I came to a marshall who had no radio and couldn't walk through the mud so I had to run on to the end before sending help out. The person who I spoke to was rather rude insisting there were plenty of marshalls. I said that my friend was in trouble and she just said 'well you'll have to give me a bit more of a clue where she is'. Without mile markers that's incredibly difficult to do.
Definitely need more marshalls and mile markers, otherwise a great race. Date of review: June 1, 2009
In short: As billed - great challenge In full: Thanks to all the helpers and organisers for staging a great event. Extra water a big plus (which was a welcome suprise as I had had my head in the sand and did not appreciate it was there before the start). P.S. great techie top. Date of review: June 1, 2009
