In short: Great scenery and race but tough wind this year! In full: All was going really well until those last three Km into the wind! 20:57 at 5 K but over 45 min for full race! Great scenery, cause and organisation. WIthout the wind definite PB material! Date of review: September 17, 2007
In short: I did not enjoy this one In full: Having a race on the same day and location as the Sand Yachting Champs was an indictation it might be windy. Oh it was windy and got windier as race went on. Have now got rid of most of sand. Course was a bit odd in places. was def about 30-40 meters short too, but am not complaining about that!

In short: Fantastic Race for a Great Cause and Challenging to Boot! In full: All I had heard previously about this race was wind, wind & more wind!!. Well I now understand why!! It wasnt as bad as I thought but 8k onwards was a fight until you saw the crowds at the end.
Really enjoyed this race and it is now on my race calendar for future years. Date of review: September 16, 2007
In short: Good race good cause In full: Cannot speak highly enough of this race excellent organisation. The people who stage this race should be proud of the work they do and the way they welcome all level of runners! Tough course with a mixture of concrete surfaces and off road running but imagine having the wind at your back on the way back!! Excellent value and the sort of race that makes you want to come back for more shame they cannot stage 2 a year Date of review: September 16, 2007
