In short: Nice course quite challanging, would be very good in fine weather In full: Thought the marshalls did very well in very poor conditions. Will definnitly think about doing it again. Would have been nice to have water at the finnish line, i know there was plenty in the hall along with very welcome bannana. Date of review: January 26, 2009

In short: A much improved race on last year, despite the weather. In full: Well done Invicta much better race than last year. It was good to see that last years issues of water stations & water supplies at the end had all been addressed.
Just a shame weather was so poor, but good organisation and a pleasant atmosphere more than made up for the ice cold driving wind & rain. Date of review: January 26, 2009
In short: I liked having the chip timing, as it seemed to take ages to get going at the start and cross the start line! Good race shame you can't tame the weather ;-) marshalls did an excellent job in hellish conditions - good work. Thanks. Date of review: January 26, 2009

In short: Good race laughs off dreadful weather In full: The weather seemed to bring out the best in people. The marshalling was superb. In Patrixbourne, there was a choice between running through a ford, or using a footbridge. Everyone fording the stream got a cheer from the spectators! Date of review: January 25, 2009
In short: Excellent race In full: Most well organised race i've been in so far. Marshalls everywhere who were remarkably cheery given the weather. Very nice scenic route although a bit narrow just after the start so make sure you are near the front to avoid getting held up. The hills are NOT as bad as some say and the downhill finish is very fast. Great fun, even in the rain. Date of review: January 25, 2009
