In short: Fantastic fun as usual. In full: Looks like your starting to get the entry levels that this great local race deserves. It's a must do race. Well done to Tadley runners, hope this swells the coffers for you. You deserve it.My favorite race of the year.Just one thing, can we have another momento other than the mug please as I have quite a few in the cupboard now. Cheers. Date of review: December 11, 2006
In short: Great fun very wet and muddy. In full: A great proper cross-country course 4 water crossings with one knee deep (great fun!!). Will be back next year, thanks to the marshalls who gave great support. Date of review: December 11, 2006
In short: Well organised and challenging XC race In full: A great XC race - challenging but not too difficult to make it impossible to run most of the time. A few streams, trees to vault, hills and soft muddy ground made for an excellent XC course.
Very well marshaled, a friendly bunch of runners and soup was a lovely touch at the end. Will definitely be back this year.
(only slight organisational concern was signing for the car park coming from the west - it took us about 15 minutes to find it and meant one of our club missed the start owing to the rush. Probably our fault for not starting early enough though!) Date of review: December 11, 2006
In short: Mud glorious mud! In full: First XC since school, which is longer than I care to mention. It was cold, wet and filthy muddy..... so all in all a fun race! Running across streams, through mud and clay as your feet go off in opposite directions and although extremely hilly in places much fun to do. Well done organisers. Date of review: December 11, 2006
In short: Winter warmer with Soup! In full: Weather was kind which made for a fun race. Organisation good though if the weather was lousy the ten minute walk to the start wouldn't be enjoyable. The race itself was fun and mildly challenging with some arduous muddy uphill sections. Soup was welcome at the end but not well advertised. Date of review: December 10, 2006
In short: Realy enjoyed the race - 1st XC since school - good atmosphere - challenging course - soup a souper touch - nice mug! - will be there next year - well done to the organisers! Date of review: December 10, 2006
