In short: Excellent race, challenging in places In full: A Fantastic race and well supported by all the locals. The unofficial water stations and ice pops & hose pipes were welcomed on a hot day. Two major hills to contend with however i found the rest of the course relatively flat. Depends upon what kind of training you are used to. There is PB potential. I received a PB and a bronze. This was the best race i have competed in so far and i'll deffo be back next year.
Medals are a great incentive - i loved this! Date of review: June 16, 2009

In short: Once again a fantastic race. See you next year! In full: A truly special race and one that goes on my "to do" calender every year. Thi hills are something else. Especially 11-12! Had to run all the way up it as my battery packed up on my watch so didn't have no idea what time or medal i was heading for! A great incentive with the medal colours. Thats what makes this race so special. terrfic support all the way round. A big thankyou to everyone involved and to the wonderful people out on the course. Date of review: June 16, 2009
In short: Very tough but a great challenge & atmosphere!!! In full: My first time here. The hills were very tough especially Milton Road. Great atmosphere & the crowds were fantastic. The queing at the end was a bit of a problem but didn't spoil the occasion. The incentive of a different medal depending on the finishing time is a great idea & spurred me on to finish in under 2hrs. Will definitely be back next year to try to run all the way!!! Date of review: June 16, 2009
