In short: You don't have to be mad as a hatter to do this races- but it helps! In full: I love this race, and think it should be on everyone's list of races to try.... I also think this is without doubt the best possible way to start the year!
The route is lumpy, and this year it was very muddy. As such, this is not a race to worry about times, or even distances.... However, the scenery is breathtaking and soul-affirming, and the sense of camaraderie and fun amongst the runners is priceless.
Massive thanks to the marshalls, and to Dr Rob and his family.... Date of review: January 1, 2013
