In short: Superbly organised, great day out. In full: Absolutely excellent day out. Organisation was spot on. All marshals were brilliant for encouragement, even if the organisers had put them all in plastic bags for the hottest day of the year!!! Minor gripe over water stations, as mid point one was rationing water when I got there and second station had run out, but such a hot day demand was probably greater than expected. Overall, favorite race of year, superb organisation, well done ARC (Again). PS. Suberb momento! How did they do that for the price? Date of review: June 9, 2008
In short: My first ever event and hard work but worth every step. In full: The local support was amazing and the hills testing. I will treasure my engraved paperweight forever!
My only tiny "criticism" is that on such a hot day, it would have been better to give outbottles of water at the half way water point as by the time I reached the second water station, my water was empty, the water station was empty and I was running on lucozade (ugggh!). However, the marshalls were most encouraging and the organisation at the finish line was excellent, particularly as I was so diorientated for the first minute or so! Date of review: June 9, 2008

In short: Hot &Hilly as usual - Great organisation & great kids events In full: Brilliant day out.....hard course as normal but still a grat race. Great races for the kids as well! my 4 yr old really enjoyed his 300m race & getting his medal & goddy bag to boot. 1st time time in a race for me with a fire engine tearing past at the 2k ish mark!!!!. Good idea to put a water station in at the foot of the last hill..... Big thanks to all the marshalls, brilliant work by all you guy's & girls. Date of review: June 8, 2008
