In short: My first offroad race, and I'll be back! In full: Gentle introduction to offroad running. A bit muddy in patches, but generally good quality trails through the Alice Holt woods. Well organised and good goody bag. Date of review: March 27, 2010
In short: Mud glorious mud - but in reality not too much of it! A bit hilly as well. In full: The BRH 21K is a 4 lap course with other runners doing 1 lap (5K) and 2 laps (10K) - a dogend just before the end of the 1st lap adds the extra km for the 21K. The organisation was excellent - and the weather this year was good running weather but the trees also(the course is on foresty land) provide some shade. The course itself is through woodland and very pleasant - in parts it is muddy - you could lose a shoe in the wrong bits - and you did have to leap the odd puddle - but this added to the fun. I would do it again - its a lovely small low key event which had an absolutely fab. goodie bag at the end - complete with mug from a well known coffee chain sponsor - chocolate, cereal bar, water bottle etc etc, - even lots of bananas! The organisation was efficient and friendly and the field not too crowded. Its not a HM with loads of crowd support - but if you enjoy a good trail run and aren't afraid of a little mud this is a lovely race. Date of review: March 27, 2010
In short: Fab race with a great atmosphere! In full: I'm sure those hills were steeper on the fourth lap! Really enjoyed this one - lovely surroundings, great organisation and perfect weather. Well done guys! Date of review: April 5, 2009
In short: As usual, the AAT team put on another great event In full: Excellent organisation and marshaling as always. Fun route and 4 laps is not at all boring. Cheeky little 1k at the end of the first lap and a surprisingly energy sapping final stretch.
Big thanks to the marshaling group at the final x-roads (by the start of the 1k) - you were brilliant.
Keep the two water stations Toby, they were needed.
Definite for me again in 2009, but with some proper training Date of review: April 4, 2009
In short: A pleasure to race In full: A real gem - I wasn`t expecting that. Thanks to all involved including all the marshals esp the ones at the final check point (loop area), who made it a fun lapped event. Another one for next year. Great stuff, well done & thanks. Date of review: April 4, 2009
