In short: Good undulating off road run. In full: This race has to be one of my favorite off road events. I,ve done this race now for three years and each time the conditions vary. Date of review: June 5, 2005
In short: Excellent marshals, friendly people, very very very muddy In full: The whole days rain the day before didn't help. A lot of this course is on bridlepaths/footpaths, ankle deep in places. In the summer, this is a lovely run but very muddy in Feb. No water left at the finish by the time I got back and I wasn't even last!!! Date of review: February 21, 2005
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
