In short: The usual tough, well marshalled enjoyable race. In full: Although not a notoriously muddy course the challenge of the race is the almost constant undulations and uneven ground. It is a two lapper but there is one short, sharp incline that has to be tackled three times. Probably not a race for a first timer but certainly one of my favourites despite - or is that because of - the hills. Date of review: October 21, 2007
In short: Nothing but praise for this fantastic race ... In full: This was my first cross country run (since school anyway but that's too long ago to remember now!) and what a great introduction to it. Plenty of friendly, encouraging marshalls - many thanks for keeping me going the whole way (twice!), I appreciated it more than you will know! A few fairly tough hills/inclines but plenty of level/downhill parts to make up for lost time too.
What a pretty park to run in, made all the lovelier by the sunshine today.
Thank you AFF for another enjoyable race! Date of review: October 21, 2007
In short: Challenging, but not unpleasantly so. In full: Although not a really a x-country fan I enjoy this race. Good mix of up, down and flat(ish) sections. Excellent for spectators too as the race circumnavigates the main body of a hill. Pity there did not seem to be many runners taking advantage of what was a very good race in all respects.
