In short: Muddy but rewarding experience. This was certainly longer than the 10km advertised In full: Huge queue for the toilets at the beginning was the only thing that spoiled it for me so in the end opted for the woods like many others. No waterstation either until the end. Would do it again and i'll bring some XC trainers next time ! Date of review: December 28, 2004
In short: Leave your watch at home, because the laps are more like 6km, making time irrelevant. Also, watch out for the big hill right at the end, when you're already starting to realise that you've already run at least 5.5km! In full: Lovely atmosphere. Starters megaphone really could do with batteries, or just someone with a loud voice (anyone here the prize giving announcement? No? Neither did the prize winners!!!). A lot of beginners, but a lovely atmosphere, supportative and friendly. And they didn't run out of water this year either! Infact, they had so much left over they were deseperately trying to get rid of it, which is impressive compared to most similar races. Date of review: December 28, 2004
In short: Better event than my individual scores probably suggest - very enjoyable! In full: Nice surroundings and great crowd, both running and supporting. Check lap distance (closer to 6km than 5) and watch for small hill at the end (feels bigger after 2 laps!). Bring spare batteries for starter's megaphone. Date of review: December 28, 2004
In short: What a great run! In full: What more could you ask for? Sun, lovley clappy spectators, great atmosphere, lots of wildlife toodling along...all made for a lovely run! My first ever and I must say I enjoyed every bit of it!
