In short: Wet Wet Wet and Smelly Smelly Smelly In full: Great to be back after missing last year. Course was in reverse with a few changes but is an excellent end of season run. We had the Sheep Dip, Pig's Trough, the bale of hay, lots of muddy and cow pat filled fields.
Brilliant race that attracted lots of nw competitores from all over the UK. Date of review: November 14, 2010
In short: It's taken me longer to clean my kit than run the run... In full: Fast access bag storage, short loo waits, pre-race hot drinks & snacks available, and a nice warm sports hall to wait in. A great start. Then it's on to the Remembrance Day service, a great idea, with poppies available if you'd lost/forgotten yours. And we're off, and it's not long until we hit the mud! Don't be shy, get stuck in, literally, squishing, slipping & sliding about. This was my first Slog, & it was great fun. Very friendly, superb organisation, lovely hot showers at the end, plus bacon butties & steaming cups of tea at bargain prices. Loved the mud, loved the folk in fancy dress, all round fab. Put this one in the diary for next year, but don't delay - as you'd expect, this one fills up fast. Date of review: November 14, 2010
In short: If the mud doesn't get you the hill will! In full: If you want one race a year when you can just go and have a laugh and want to leave the watch at home - this has to be it. Date of review: November 14, 2010
