In short: Well Done Fat Feet In full: Details sent before the race where excellent which showed exactly where the water stops where, what the course profile was and what surface to expect amongst other info. Superbly organised in a non pushy relaxed an informal way. what a refreshing change from those boring corporate everything fits all events. this is unique and has a real atmosphere...one for REAL runners.

In short: lovely scenery, and a nice coarse, In full: very enjoyable, and has the potential to accomodate a larger field, good marshalling and organisation, would like to try this again in 5 years maybe to see how it developes, Date of review: August 15, 2011
In short: A race mixed with different types of surfaces. Tired and hot at the end but enjoyed it. Came in first and love the prize. Was expecting more a flat race so will know better next time Date of review: July 27, 2010
In short: Very enjoyable race - refreshingly no frills In full: I thoroughly enjoyed the race, with fantastic views. The set up is basic by some standards but did everything it needed to do. Plenty of water stops and all the marshals were very friendly giving words of encouragement. Could do with an ice cream van at the finish line for next year. Date of review: July 27, 2010
In short: In full: I signed up for this race as I wanted to do a half marathon on the day of my 31st birthday, and I must say, I could not have had a better first half marathon experience. Best birthday gift to myself, ever!!!
I was expecting a flatter course though, but the scenery and the excellent marshalling very well made up for the tough parts :) I really enjoyed it, although the last two miles on the grassy bits were criminal and whilst running I was thinking never again. But after crossing the finish line I could only think I'd do it again, any day.
THANK YOU FAT FEET!!! Date of review: July 27, 2010
