In short: Friendly, demanding and wet. In full: Superbly organised and very well marshalled. This is a great race! Absolutely no chance whatsoever of " a time", but an enjoyable opportunity to splash through claf deep mud and puddles, with a few not to demanding climbs thrown in. The first mile or so of descent tempts you to start fast, but the final mile of ascent means that a steady start is more sensible.
A great race - back next year! Date of review: February 13, 2006

In short: Tough race in wonderful surroundings In full: My first off-road race and I found it tough but there was plenty of support from the Marshals and the medal and certificate at the end made it all worthwhile! Date of review: February 15, 2005
In short: First real off road race and found all that mud tough going, it seemed to last forever! The hill at the last mile was just mean. Bizarrely tho think i quite enjoyed it in a masochistic way of course! Date of review: February 15, 2005
