In short: Really well organised race with incredible atmosphere. In full: Very difficult (especially if you're new to trail running) but all the marshalls, volunteers and fellow runners so supportive. Date of review: June 25, 2012
In short: A superb but very tough race in any weather. The mud made it especially challenging this year but added to the fun nonetheless. In full: This was my 3rd running and I've enjoyed getting a new pb at every one. The mud made it especially challenging this year but added to the fun. All the marshals were very friendly and the water stations were fantastic. The organisation is always superb and the race HQ is 2nd to none. I would reccomend this race to anyone who likes a tough challenge and a fun race. I really trained on hills this year but nothing prepares you for how tough the hills are. I'll be back again next year to try for another PB. Date of review: June 25, 2012
In short: Fabulous race, very challenging, made even more so this year with the mud. Usually it can be on a very hot day which presents its own challenges. Amazing support, all the way around, a real achievement to finish. Fab cakes, medal and T-shirt. In full: My 3rd time at this race and I just know I'll be back next year, despite muttering 'never again' as I crossed the finish line.
Regular water stations, with energy drinks, jelly babies, sponges and very friendly faces. Date of review: June 25, 2012
In short: Brilliant race despite the mud and hills. In full: This is the first time I've run this race despite marshalling for several years. Brilliant organisation and I must say a huge thank you to all the marshals for standing out in the rain waiting for us slower runners with a cheer and smile on their faces. Well done.
