In short: What a killer course. In full: Water up to the top of my thighs - thank goodness for long legs!! Muddy, sandy, very wet. Hills like I've never seen which moved under foot. Best bit seeing other people fall in the water. Good atmosphere. Goody bag incl decent T shirt plus other bits. This event must have taken some organising and they did a great job marking the course etc.
1 week after the great south run is a bit much though especially if all you've done is training on flat roads. Date of review: October 17, 2004
