In short: Local favourite x-country with hills In full: The switchback seems ok if you take it gently. Will hope to trot around next year if the marshalls can wait that long for me to get around again! Date of review: April 16, 2007
In short: Fun, challenging race with excellent organisation. In full: Hills not as bad as I had expected, but deffiently still a challenge; very good orgaisation and enthusiastic marshalls! Date of review: September 25, 2006
In short: Great off road race thru woods, bit tough! In full: Fab race, very friendly and although moslty club runners, not at all intimidating. Excellently marshalled throughout, very undulating thru woods, interesting if wet and muddy!
In short: Great race In full: Good sharpener for coming XC season. Course is challenging in parts but does have flat and down hill sections to make up for some of the climbs. Excellent cakes afterwards - much appreciated. Date of review: September 25, 2006
In short: Where's the mud? In full: Great painfully beautiful 'valleys' at the top, made it with help from those fantastic encouraging marshals! A very friendly race, great course.. will be back Date of review: September 25, 2006
In short: I hate running up hills... In full: ...but i throughly enjoyed this run MORE than i thought i would. I kept to a steady pace and stayed at the back - but still made a better time than i thought! I will definately be joining the Striders now, as they are a nice bunch.
