In short: A mix of water, mud and cow-pat In full: Great fun and great organisation. Really enjoyable event involving many close shaves with mud cow pat and water features. Maybe one extra water station required midway, however, nothing to complain about on this event as it was perfect.
In short: New course this year which made it slight;y longer - more like 9 miles but good fun as usual In full: Goddie bag at the end was a nice touch and some good spot prizes. Good fun - I'll be back next year. Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: Another good year... In full: Brilliant, what a excellent run!!! You won't get your PB, but this is a nice tough course.. If you are up for a good time and can handle 8 miles and don't mind getting muddy then do this run, it is one my most favorite run I enter each year.
In short: excellent fun In full: well organised only slight route problem was the long wait at the first wet ditch.Lots of people cheated here and ran around rather than wait.You should be ashamed of yourselves!! Must go faster next year so I can get a hot shower.By the time I finished they were colder than the water out on the course! Date of review: November 13, 2005
In short: Lung busting, knee grazing, Shite covering fun. In full: Lost my shoe, had to run back into the mud in my sock. Submerged my crown jewels in freezing water, gashed my knee had ended up on antibiotics for a week. BUT I FINISHED! Totally mad but best race I've done for fun and challenge!

In short: Dirty.........real dirrrrty In full: If you like your running clean, at a fairly constant pace, with no obstacles or bottle necks, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! If your up for a Sunday morning getting down and dirty in the Gloucestershire countryside, and your prepared to get around 8.5 miles any way you can. You've got to experience this at least once in your life. Theres more mud than the Somme, they send you through rivers (next to perfectly good bridges) and judging by the amount of $hit, I recon they drive cows round the course before the runners start. DO IT.....ITS GREAT! Date of review: December 2, 2004
