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
In short: A very friendly well organised traditional XC event In full: A really enjoyable, unpretentious, old fashioned cross country race. It has the lot - stream crossings, cultivated field edges, hard paths, mud, puddles and a few testing little hills. It also has friendly runners, supportive marshalls, vocal supporters, and at the end - Soup. A great day. I'll be back. Date of review: December 10, 2006
In short: great well oganised race In full: Yes a brilliant run only wish at the turn when you see runners coming back the other way I could creap under the rope with out notice. My favourtie all time race with soup thanks Date of review: December 10, 2006
In short: Good run. Nice hot soup at the end. In full: As I was running in road shoes I had worried about sliding about in the mud, but it wasn't too muddy. The water in the stream was cold though! Well organised, although it wasn't obvious where they were serving the soup. Date of review: December 10, 2006
