In short: You need to be fast to get to the cakes but a brilliant race. I'll be happy if I can run up two of the hills! In full: I know I won't ever be able to run up one of the hills. I'd be supprised and impressed if anyone can! Date of review: January 15, 2007
In short: Hard race, very muddy and hilly but well worth the aches and pains! In full: Having not done so many cross country this was a hard race for me, but very enjoyable and well worth the mud and aches. Date of review: January 15, 2007
In short: What can you say. Glorious mud and sunshine all in one day. Without doubt one of the most stunning races I have undertaken with extremely efficient organisation and great support from marshalls and supporters alike. In next years diary already. Date of review: January 15, 2007
In short: Brilliant In full: Challenging course but very friendly atmosphere both from the marshalls and other runners make this a must do event and I knocked 6 minutes off my time from last year, can't be bad. Only one complaint:Some greedy *****s had eaten all the cakes by the time I got in!!! Date of review: January 14, 2007
In short: Tough, tumbled over in the mud, took forever but what a race! Stunning scenery, friendliest marshalls and runners. Terrific. In full: Despite my legs feeling like lead - not helped by the three pounds of mud caked to each shoe! - and struggling a lot in the last few miles, the stunning scenery, incredibly friendly and supportive marshalls and runners, lovely gloopy mud and challenging hills (felt like mountains to me!!) made this a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday. It put a smile on my face and half a hundredweight of mud in my washing machine.
Glad we bought our cakes before the race and had them put aside for us, otherwise we'd have missed out!!! Date of review: January 14, 2007
