In short: Full of spirit but challenging conditions In full: Despite the snow making the course tricky and unique, the scenery was outstanding as were the marshalls high spirits for the day. Hats off to the marshalls for standing out in it for hours on end. Very well organised and a great sense of acheivement Date of review: January 21, 2013
In short: An excellent muti terrain race with great support along the way. In full: A superb effort by Benfleet to get the race on and the marshalls for standing around for hours in the snow today. It would have been easy to have called it off but full credit and what an experience. Many thanks again. Date of review: January 20, 2013
In short: Amazing..... In full: Can't thanks the organisers enough for allowing the race to go ahead despite the snowy conditions. The marshalls were absolutely amazing,loads of them & every one of them smiling & with words of encouragement. First time I have completed this race but one of my all time favourites & will definitely do it again. Date of review: January 20, 2013
In short: Wot no mud? Have to do with the Wind instead... In full: 1st time at Benfleet 15... The cross country bits around the downs were great, the sea wall coming east to west very challenging, effort repaid with satisfaction at job well done.
Marshalls excellent, well stocked stations with goodies (mars bar, custard creams, jelly babies) and friendly racers.
Bit of a queue at one stile when we could've gone through a gate (which some/most people did), but next stile resulted in correct & proper british queuing at it's finest.
