In short: Breath taking views, breath taking hills interspersed with thrilling down hill sections! In full: A definite must do race. Brilliant atmosphere, well organised and doing it in fancy dress made it even more fun. Well chosen and marked out course with friendly marshals.Tough hills with enough flat and down hill sections to just about keep the legs moving! Date of review: January 1, 2011
In short: Great route, good atmosphere, and goodies are worth the pain In full: The mixture of a very serious course with "loopy" (well "loopy" looking at least) runners made this race special. Date of review: January 13, 2010
In short: Tough as old boots, but hilarious In full: A very tough course, up and down and up and down etc - you get the picture. Hilarious fancy dress from loads of people and great atmosphere. Date of review: January 5, 2010
In short: Best running event I have ever taken part in! In full: Fantastic way to start the year. Amazing atmosphere, with most people in fancy dress (including thongs, knight of ni, landed gentry etc). Slowest runners start first and lot of people walking up the hills, so wasn't left behind, as I thought I might be.
Great post race goodies - proper winter running top with all competitors names on, fleecy hat, soup, sandwiches, carrots, beer.
Loads of free photos available, as well as professional ones. Date of review: January 5, 2010
