In short: a really fantastic event In full: I've never ached so much, but it was a great 'race' and the organisation was far better than most. A new one to add to my list of repeat events. If you enjoy being off-road you should consider this. Friendly atmosphere, and plenty of encouragement from fellow runners. Date of review: June 28, 2006
In short: Worth every ache, pain, blister and bruise. Proud to have taken part. In full: Every runner should do this once in their life. Physically and mentally the toughest race i've ever done. Found reserves i never knew i had. The heat added to the toughness, but plenty of fluid on-route. Excellent marshalling, always willing you on, keeping up your spirits, providing precious water. Faultless organisation. Ran like clockwork, superb goodiebag (with medal and t-shirt) and great picnic (top cakes). The utmost respect to all involved, especially all those who finished.

In short: Like Hills - You'll love this race!! In full: The hardest half marathon I've ever run, certainly a challenge and perversly it was actually fun to slog your guts out up ans down Box Hill........ Date of review: June 27, 2006
In short: "why did I start running?" Ah, yes, the MM will answer that question! In full: Stunning.
I cannot recommend this race highly enough. Really did make me remember why I started running in the first place. The camaraderie, the scenery, the goodies, (even the carrot made me smile!) the watersplash, (great for cooling the legs if you bypass the stepping stones) the spectators cheering everyone on... I haven't had such a big grin on my face after a race for ages! Date of review: June 26, 2006
In short: If Carlsberg did races...it would be this one! In full: Awesome course, great organisation and a fantastic atmosphere. Can barely walk today (Monday) but loved every minute of the race. Doesn't get much better or more challenging than this race! Date of review: June 26, 2006
