In short: tough but oh so worth it...!!! In full: What a fab race!!! Excellent organisation, nice touch withe sweets at the water stations.. some very tough climbs(but I just walked those bits) and a very long steady climb towards the tower... very friendly marshalls, great atmosphere and now my legs especially my bum is in bits... Was thinking of doing the Picnic marathon.. just a bit more training first I think..
Thanks for a great friendly race. Date of review: March 8, 2009
In short: 10/10 gold star event. Hard to beat. In full: Dr Robert and crew, thanks for a brilliant race. Impossible to fault. Great challenge, scenic course, excellent organisation, well thought out goodie bag, a cooked breakfast...and the national anthem to raise the spirits at the start. Awesome. In the diary for next year already. Best race of the year. Date of review: March 8, 2009
In short: Simply incredible feeling finishing it! Can't wait until next year! In full: I was one of the younger lot that did it (four of us that were 17) and we thought it was brutal but brilliant...can't wait to do it again. Date of review: April 3, 2008
In short: Tough and challenging, but well worth the effort for the views In full: Excellent organisation and a fantastic course. Hard work but great fun - made all the more enjoyable by terrific support and encouragement from other runners and marshalls. Date of review: April 2, 2008
In short: The best trail run I've ever done (and I've done a few) In full: This is an outstanding event. The organisation made you think it had been going for a decade, but in fact it was the inaugural race! The course is very tough - only elite runners who can do a half marathon in 1:09 would expect to run every yard of it. Expect lung bursting walks, death-defying downhill plunges and MUD.
A superb race, the most fun I've had in years. I'll be back. Date of review: March 24, 2008
In short: Very challenging but scenary and route makes this a very enjoyable run. The breakfast afterwardss was most welcome. One of the best organised races II have done in a while. Excellent memorabilia. distance mrkers are missing but who needs them in the Date of review: March 13, 2008
