In short: Excellent race, though a bit challenging for me this year! In full: Lovely route, fairly small numbers which meant a quick start and amazing weather - bearing in mind what was forecast a bit of wind wasn't too bad. Horrible hills though - first time ever I've walked - and I walked twice! But then I've not being training so hard recently.
And I thought the motorbikes were great - gave me something to look at on the long straight - the riders were very friendly and no threat at all. And several Viragos there so has to be a good thing!
I'll be back and will try harder next year. Great race. Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: Great race. No grumbles what so ever. In full: A lovely scenic race. Pleased I chose this over Silverstone. The hills were challenging but there are worse hills in other races. Great organisation. Well marshalled with 4 welome water stops. Mile markers spot on. Shame its not supported by more people. I will certainly spread the word. Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: Perfect Day In full: Well Its Much Better then Last Year I Think.More Crowds and Marshalls Well Done.But 2 pitfalls Car nearly rang into us and the Motorbike Day should be next Week.Won'T clash with the Events. Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: great course, great weather and great organisers In full: It's the first time i have done this race, someone was having a laugh when they put those two hills in! I had a good race, and a good day, the pint after was also good! Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: Very good race, great course, well organised. Good day out!!! In full: Two hills may have slowed me a little but I finished 3 mins ahead of predicted time, many others reported PB's so don't get hung up on hills, they go down too. Brilliant course, great views, great people. Will be back next year. Mile markers spot on which always helps. Date of review: March 9, 2008
In short: A well organised race - hassle free. Beautiful weather if a little breezy. Those hills hurt! the 1st one more so. Lack of spectator support but this was helped by the encouraging marshalls. Would do this one again Date of review: March 13, 2007
In short: Don't tell everyone about this one, or I won't get in next year! In full: Really friendly race. Marshals excellent and very encouraging. Thanks everyone. First hill ok, second one not! This is a lovely part of the World (I live here). Definitely be back next year. Date of review: March 12, 2007
