In short: Fantastic race and atmosphere! In full: Loved every minute of it!(well, may be not going up all those steps!!) Great organisation, friendly marshalls, plenty of support from faster runners overtaking all us slow ones! Seemed expensive to enter, but well worth it, medal, shirt, mug, soup, cheese rolls, mars bars, sweets, prizes, raffle and just a fab atmosphere.
Thanks to all involved. Date of review: January 2, 2009

In short: superb start to the year once again In full: tough tough race. great atmosphere around the course with lots of support from competitors and people lining the course despite chilly weather. fantastic fancy dress. throughly exhausting, but uplifiting run. very sore today, the day after the race.
In short: Muddy, friendly, ridiculous fun! In full: I was nervous about this one having walked up and down Box Hill before - but running? However finished in surprisingly respectable time and really enjoyed myself. Everyone from the fastest runner to the most "dolled up", the marshalls and bemused new years day picnicers were very encouraging!
Thank you everyone! I will be back possibly as something other than Bumble Bee - Buzzzzzzz away! Date of review: January 2, 2009
In short: Fantastic 'race' to start the year with... In full: Dont be put off by the £27 entry fee, it most deffinetley woth every single penny...for the following reasons: When do you get to run through the countryside with the 'cast' of Wizard of OZ? Where do you get such great cameradery amongst fellow 'competitors'? Where do you get great organisation and Marshalls? Answer, The BoxHill Knacker cracker...Well done to Rob and his team for a great race...
Oh yeah, and how many races do you finish and get a great medal, a great mug, a great t-shirt (complete with your name on the back), soup, cheese and pickle rolls and mars bars....???? Date of review: January 1, 2009
In short: Another excellent start to a year! In full: Well done to Rob and his team for organising yet another great Knacker Craker. My horse (or maybe donkey?!) and I followed the cast of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz round the course - a great effort by all of them! Date of review: January 1, 2009
In short: The marshalling was great and everyone, runners, marshals, spectators were all very encouraging. Very well marked course, with a little humour thrown in, it started the year off well. Date of review: January 1, 2009
