In short: Worth it for the goody bag! In full: Hard 10 mile course, but very scenic and good marshalling. Goody bag is the best I've come across by far! There's only two area's in which this race can be improved... 1. Chip timing 2. Improve toilets at the start Will be there again next year! Well done Nidd Valley!!
In short: Fab race with a great atmosphere and a brilliant goody bag at the end. Couple of killer hills, and this year the roads were flooded which was fun. Plus Ripley is a lovely place. Full marks Date of review: November 1, 2009
In short: What can one say? Fandabidosi !! In full: First time but definately not the last. Great atmosphere with great organisation & commitment by a great club.The course was testing but as well as the graft you had time to chat & enjoy the great scenery with a great finish in the Castle rounded of with a great Goody bag & training top. It made the shopping bill in Harrogate better to swallow !!!!! Date of review: November 8, 2008

In short: Brilliant In full: Best organised and best value for money of any race I've done. You'd pay more than the entry fee just for the t shirt. Organisation was faultless - route well marshalled and well signed, plenty of parking, results on line the same day. Course was excellent - even enjoyed the hills. If you run you should do this race.
