In short: Toughest half-marathon I've done. In full: Really tough event. Run over a range of surfaces & a couple of tough ascents in the first half. Undulating throughout the second half. Very well organised with an excellent spread at the end. Thanks to organisers. Date of review: September 9, 2007
In short: A privilege to take part. In full: Brilliant off-road run through varied terrain with great views. As a first time fell-runner it was unclear if I needed to carry compass, waterproofs etc. with me. Queue for race numbers at the beginning delayed start. Appeared to be lack of water at first (7mile) drink stop. Next time will carry water pack. Route description unclear but okay if someone to follow. Map route in race pack would be definate advantage or OS national grid refs.
Excellent atmosphere, friendly marshalls, brilliant value, superb course, good facilities and post race refreshments. Thanks for a great day! Date of review: September 12, 2006
In short: Good race, good food In full: Great scenery, and a friendly race. Not too impressed about having to queue 45 minutes to collect my number, why weren't they sent out in the post prior to the race? Other than that, no complaints and the beef stew was excellent Date of review: September 11, 2006
In short: superb scenery, half expected to see Heathcliffe and Kathy out for their early morning run. Very friendly and well organized even if I did got lost for a mile, I'll be back next year Date of review: September 10, 2006
