In short: This is how a multi terrian race should be In full: Did this race 4 years ago,(that's how long it takes to recover!!),they have lengthened the course to about eleven and a half miles, included more off road,(and mud!),and ironed out previous bottle necks. I think think it is now just about perfect, if you have done the tough 10 challenge at w.s.m. and thought it was tuff, try the terminator and find out what a real race is like.

In short: Loads of mud,rivers and hills fit for a mountain goat! In full: Well organised a huge thank you to the marshalls especially those on top of the hills who must have been freezing in that cold wind. Date of review: February 25, 2007
In short: Excellent morning out - challenging, wet & muddy; what else should you be doing on a Sun? In full: First event ever entered; certainly has encouraged me to enter some more races over the year. The course was fun and challenging. I ran in ASICS 2110s and found it difficult to get ant traction on large parts of the course. I will be investing in some proper offroad shoes for next year. Probably worth up to 10mins on the time Date of review: February 25, 2007
In short: Thick mud, cold river, fabulous & encouraging marshalls In full: Thickest & deepest mud I've ever had to get through, felt sorry for those trying to become re-acquainted with their shoes within the 1st mile.. Bit concerned when I saw the survivial tent on the top of one of the hills but given the wind up there it was probably a good idea. Cracking race, didn't stop smiling but occasionally questioned my sanity, after all I'd done the race last year & still came back. Definitely much tougher underfoot and got a personal worst for the distance - a tad over 11 miles again, never believe those friendly marshalls when they say there's only 2 to go :-)
Thanks to all involved: organisers, marshalls, participants, spectators & especially the cake bakers.
