In short: Fab race, best marshals, wowee views and killer hills In full: Thank you Hogweeds for a wonderful run (well quite a few hills I walked - but thats not your fault). Flawless organisation and wonderful marshalling. If the memory of Kilcott fades I will be back next year. Date of review: March 20, 2006
In short: Excellent scenery, great hills, tough course & wonderfully organised. In full: A great alternative to a big city marathon, well organised, friendly support along the route with breath taking scenery & lots of marshalls. A quick finish with a welcoming table of tea & cakes. I look forward to running it again next year. Date of review: March 19, 2006
In short: Very friendly, excellent organisation, good encouragement from the marshalls and a really picturesque setting. Brilliant! In full: If only they could level out one or two of those hills a bit....! Date of review: March 19, 2006
In short: excellently tough race over some scenic HILLS!, really well organised, cheers Hogweeds In full: Great sceanery, well organised with lots of marshalls and plenty of water. Tough course which really is "hilly" and not the usual "Undulating!" Free sports massage at the end was very welcome as was the massive amount of cakes and food and a nice goodie bag. Will be back next year and for all the other Hogweed races, cheers hogweed....well done! Date of review: March 19, 2006
In short: For a first time of running this was an excellent race . . obviously staged by runners for runners as everything had been thought of. In full: Thoroughly enjoyed this race around the South Gloucestershire hills. Well done to all concerned. Great idea to stage an alternative to Bath and it deserves to succeed and if today is anything to go by then it can't help but do so.
Liked the goody bag with it's Hogweed Half woolly hat memento . . hope I can still find it come the autumn!!
Prize for 100th runner a nice touch (although I finished 50th so perhaps the organisers could consider broadening this aspect of the prizes on offer).
Only fair to add that I'm an interested party as I'm a Hogweed . . but I live 100-ish miles away and wasn't involved in any aspect of the organisation. Date of review: March 20, 2005
