In short: An excellent introduction to ultra running In full: Really well organised, checkpoints every 10km with water, cake, energy bars and flap jacks. The route was marked with stickers/tape and paint on the ground but some markings had been moved. We were also provided with a good map but still managed to get lost a few times and do 33 miles!!
Lovely route along the Robin Hood Way, quite hilly but no massive hills just lots of smallish ones. Despite lots of rain it wasnt too muddy, it was possible to tip toe around the big muddy bits and keep the feet dry!!!
Great finish by the castle but it was a bit nasy making us run up a steep 100m long hill infront of people sitting outside the pubs/cafes having a drink on a sunday afternoon! Date of review: August 23, 2010
