In short: Superb - Trionium Quality Race In full: Rob and the Trionium organisers have a beautiful, fun and challenging race which we all ran for Queen and Country! Best race I have ever been in. Date of review: March 9, 2009
In short: Best race of the year In full: I love this race! Hard work from the off, but so much fun running down hill on the way back. Just walk up the really steep hills and steps and run the rest. Thanks Dr Rob for a fantastic race - I'll be back! Date of review: March 9, 2009
In short: Tough friendly race through some great scenery In full: For starters this is a tough course, the run up to Leith Hill is a gradual climb pretty much all the way with two steep sections near the top. The second half is back the way you came so pretty much all downhill with a nasty little climb at about 12.5 miles! Surface is a mixture of mainly forest tracks and sand and a bit of grass and tarmac.
Overall, a friendly event with lots of encouragement from spectators, marshalls and fellow competitors and no feel of elitism.
Probably not an ideal first race (it was mine) but as long as you are prepared to tough it out you will a very rewarding experience. Date of review: March 9, 2009
In short: Wow! What a toughy . . . In full: . . . but absolutely fantastic! This race was fantastically organised with great marshalls all the way around. The sweeties at the water stop were most welcome and probably helped my speediness on the way home! That and the thought of the breakfast! These races are always brilliantly organised and the race memento's were great. Will defo do this again - unless I see sense at some point but am now considering the Greensands. I must be mad . . .
