In short: Muddier than last year - Great! In full: My second Slog and enjoyyed it very much. Plenty of the advertised mud, and good conditions for the race. Support for most of the route and great organisation by Bitton.
Seemed harder than last year, maybe the mud slowed me down a little.
In short: A great way to spend a wet cold Sunday morning ! In full: perfect organisation, brilliant marshalls and tons of mud . I actually love this race ! Will definitely be back next year for more ! Date of review: November 15, 2010
In short: Smiling, but good bye to my muddy kit! In full: Great race. Well organised. Felt appreciative to be running after the 2 minute silence pre race. Good facilities, lots of portaloos. Really good fun atmosphere. Friendly. Race itself is really hard work, lots of mud, hills, water and a few fun obstacles. Makes you wonder why spend a fortune on hyped up races like the hellrunner when great value muddy challenges like this are around at half the price. Date of review: November 15, 2010
In short: A great day out In full: A Sodbury Virgin! Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Marshaling superb, jelly babies and jelly beans a nice touch. Only concern was the PA system before the race and when results were announced, couldn't hear anything. Maybe the horn could be sounded to get peoples attention before making the announcements? Well done Bitton!! Date of review: November 15, 2010
In short: What fun to kick start my running..... In full: I have been having lots of problems lately, with my injuries to my knees, although I had not done much training, I needed this to realise how much fun running was!!
Very execellent organisation for a club event, and most definition will make this a regular on my calender! Date of review: November 15, 2010
In short: Lots of mud but shame about the Pig Trough In full: Very enjoyable run, the hill was quite a challenge, the muddy bogs were a great laugh and the sticky mud was never ending.
The only problem was the pig trough, took a good 10 minutes queing to get into it and then it was a stop/start affair of getting through it. Was definitely cooling down too much with all the waiting. Really needs looking at. Date of review: November 15, 2010
In short: One pig trough too far In full: A well organised race with a great, friendly atmosphere but far too much slippery-slidey mud and 3 waist-deep troughs of cold, muddy water. Surely one or two would have been enough? :-) An experience but not to be repeated anytime soon! Date of review: November 15, 2010
