In short: My first ever event and hard work but worth every step. In full: The local support was amazing and the hills testing. I will treasure my engraved paperweight forever!
My only tiny "criticism" is that on such a hot day, it would have been better to give outbottles of water at the half way water point as by the time I reached the second water station, my water was empty, the water station was empty and I was running on lucozade (ugggh!). However, the marshalls were most encouraging and the organisation at the finish line was excellent, particularly as I was so diorientated for the first minute or so! Date of review: June 9, 2008

In short: Hot &Hilly as usual - Great organisation & great kids events In full: Brilliant day out.....hard course as normal but still a grat race. Great races for the kids as well! my 4 yr old really enjoyed his 300m race & getting his medal & goddy bag to boot. 1st time time in a race for me with a fire engine tearing past at the 2k ish mark!!!!. Good idea to put a water station in at the foot of the last hill..... Big thanks to all the marshalls, brilliant work by all you guy's & girls. Date of review: June 8, 2008
