In short: Glorious winter conditions. In full: Well done to Martin Burke the race director for the constant stream of race information with the adverse weather conditions. As it turned out the race was glorious - snow everywhere and bright sunshine with clear skies. Plenty of room to mill around in the warm before and after the race.It's a shame that it has to be a 2 lap course. The setting is wonderful - any chance of making it a single loop?

In short: Weather conditions made for a scenic but 'watch your step' race In full: No queue for the toilet and refreshments available inside. Thought the location was scenic and the marshals were encouraging.Enjoyed the race but was really disappointed it was not the 5 miles it claimed to be. Date of review: December 19, 2009
In short: Wonderful end to the season In full: Well done to Martin and his folks for keeping this race going despite everything that the weather could throw in his way! Enjoyable course, fantastic seasonal scenery and a great atmosphere. Well done - loved it and will be back for a third go next year. Perfect start to the festive sillyness.

In short: Lovely race really enjoyable In full: Well done to Martin for pulling it off against all the odds. That hill took my breath away the first time around but loved the mud and snow through the woods. Even the A21 behaved itself on the way back to Gravesend. Date of review: December 19, 2009
In short: good run In full: a good run not 100% sure it was 5 miles or i smashed my pb, but well worth it i would like to say the communication was very good from Martin to keep all informed of the situation race on or not look forward to next years race with less snow if possible Date of review: December 19, 2009
In short: Lovely day, lovely race, lovely burgers afterwards In full: Well done to all at Nice Work, a lovely race, really enjoyed myself. And to have a bar and a BBQ afterwards and a good band to listen to while the sun went down really made it for me.
The course was really pretty, very scenic and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Date of review: June 1, 2009
