In short: Dangerous race, many fell over due to very muddy conditions and narrow pathways In full: Having only ever done the Kenilworth half Marathon last October, I was ready for this. However as a pre-Marathon run I found the course dishearting not due to the difficulty of it but the sheer madness of anyone wanting to enter this race. Narrow runways led to people slipping over on many occasions and many straight paths / slight slopes were un-runable.
The course should be down as a heavy mucky cross country run with a few roads on the way. Anyone finishing without falling over did well. Date of review: February 6, 2005
In short: Great multi terrain race. Wonderful scenery. Quite muddy. Correct trainers essential. Friendly and helpful marshals. In full: Would have been useful to have had:- mile markers more people on the 5 mile water station and some people on the final water station Date of review: February 6, 2005
