In short: Excellent again In full: Could have done with more mud this year but it helped the times - I was 7 mins faster! Those who thought that was muddy don't know they're born! Special thanks to the man by the High Moor who told me the footy score. Date of review: February 19, 2006
In short: Magnificent mud skating, stile leaping race In full: This race is fantastic - loads of variey, 2 challenging hills and a draining, slippery final rise; the steepest bits are thankfully on good track / road; the final downhill is superb, with two hurdles to fly over. Wear fell shoes for this one if you have them , as the mud is the slidiest I've ever run in -saw loads of fallers. Special thanks to the marshalls for their encouragement and doing a great job.

In short: Not many races like this in the calender, a bit of everything and more ! In full: Think of every possible terrain, think of every possible hazard and think of everything hard in a race. I bring you the Parbold Hill Race.
In short: should have worn spikes In full: really good training run, felt like i was skiing in the mud at times! good first race this year think i clocked in just under an hour, anyone know where to get the official results from? Date of review: February 11, 2006
In short: Good fun, but 2 hills and a lot of mud In full: Cracking race. Quite a challenge with 2 tough hills; the first is shorter but early in the race so an effort, the second is longer but you're in the swing of it. In 2005 it was a bit wintery with strong gusty winds, but that added to the challenge. Oh and the paths were a bit muddy! Date of review: February 13, 2005
