In short: Excellent event. Nice route and well organised. In full: Very enjoyable. First time I've run in this event and thought every aspect of it was great. The marshalling, organisation and race route were spot on and will definitely look to come back next year. Date of review: July 13, 2009
In short: best race so far In full: this was one of my best races so far nice and pleasent people, thought it might get too hot starting at 11am but was very cool with a nice breeze, and not only you get a medal you get a baseball cap to will do it again next year for sure Date of review: July 12, 2009
In short: Enjoyable race! In full: Enjoyed this race. Very smooth organisation and a great family feel to the day. The course was a mixture of ups and downs and the weather certainly played its part - I was hugging to the shade as much as possible! Overall, an enjoyable race and I'll be back next year.

In short: Very enjoyable, "undulating" is the key word here, don't do this race if you don't like mile long hills! In full: The only possible thing I could pick up on about this run (and it is a run, not a race.. such is the togetherness atmosphere!) is regarding the organisation. I felt the pack sent through the post could be a bit clearer about the location, and a map of the route would have been very useful. After 22 years of this run happening, i would have thought the race pack would be comprehensive.
Having said these points, they aren't really the end of the world, far from it and what you do get in terms of rewards, atmosphere and the route itself far outweigh any negatives i can think of! Date of review: July 16, 2008
In short: Good local race. Very challenging, especially 5-6 mile incline In full: Good, local race. Very friendly, interesting route with dowwnhill sections and very challenging uphill sections. Not really one for setting a PB but would efinately run it again. Date of review: July 14, 2008
In short: The heat made it even more challenging In full: My first time at this race and wasn't sure what to expect. Location of start and finish was superb with plenty to do for awaiting supporters. Plenty of water stations which I am very grateful for. Only downside was a few near misses with some cars along the three to four mile stretch. I'll be back next year!! Date of review: July 14, 2008
