In short: Hard In full: Organization was really fine. However some uphill are simply too steep when muddy, expecially one. But most important the steeper downhill was dangerous. Date of review: January 12, 2009
In short: Mud and Blood!!!! In full: Fantastic race! Running on melting ice is a great new experience! I've never finished a race covered in so much mud and blood! Fantastic! Date of review: January 12, 2009
In short: Hard but good fun In full: First year and first competitive race. Very good, hard but enjoyable and that big hill at the mid point - very emotional!! Excellent organisation and thank you to the marshals, it must have been freezing stood out there all day!
Will definitely be back next year. Date of review: January 11, 2009
In short: Hard but enjoyable In full: My first time and I think I need to purchase some trail shoes, the muddy/icy conditions were hard in normal trainers. Very enjoyable though and well organised. See you next year. Date of review: January 11, 2009
