In short: Brilliant. Wonderful scenery, challemging terrain, plenty of water stations and willing, helpful smiling volunteers. I will be back in 2012 In full: Please, please please can the runners put their empties in the next available bin or leave at the next water station,there were plenty available. This is a wonderful,unique area and to spoil the environment with your lack of respect was very annoying. It should not be for the volunteers to clear up after you. Date of review: July 28, 2011
In short: A unique event with excellent organisation with the potential to become one of the UK's premier events. In full: An excellent race and thanks to all the volunteers who made it possible. The organisation was excellent from start to finish and even included a parachute display at the start and a low level fly past by a Lancaster Bomber at the half way stage! A following breeze for most of the race helped but the cooling waters of the river crossing at the half way distance gave a opportunity to cool down and sooth aching muscles. A unique and challenging way to cross the bay and a must do for any runner. This is already unique and has the potential to become one of the UK premier events.
In short: Wow, second year and it just gets better, another great X bay, big massive thanks to all especially marshalls, with words of encouragement, from start, throuout course and end, every single one with a smile. See you all next year. Date of review: July 27, 2011
In short: Superbly organised from the first turn into Hest Bank in your car to the cheerful return of your kit bag at the end - not to forget all the great organisation in the middle - a race not to be missed. Date of review: July 27, 2011
