In short: Great fun, fantastic organisation, sadistic crowds and perfect weather. In full: First time I've done the Slog and it lived up to the hype. Really is a fantastic event with great atmosphere and organisation. I haven't done a x-country for 25 years (at school) and this is a great introduction with some nice sheep dip style sections.
Definately one for next year. Date of review: November 12, 2007
In short: Just the best race ever! Fabulous atmosphere, friendly runners, great marshalls and ,best of all, loads of luvverly mud!!! In full: This is an event, not a race, and just the best fun you can have with your clothes on! Fabulous support from the marshalls, who were unfailingly friendly, supportive and who applauded every single one of us, giving us words of encouragement. Best bits - the lake, obviously! Running through the big puddly by the little bridge just before the common, sliding down the big hill on our bottoms, and doing aeroplane impersonations while singing The Dambusters as we came down the hills!
This is just the most fantastic way to spend a Sunday. Observing the two minute silence followed by the bugler playing the Last Post adds to the occasion and makes the start of the race very poignant and moving and just adds to the special qualities this race has.
Can't wait till next year!! Thank you everyone who made it happen. Date of review: November 12, 2007
