In short: Excellent race in frreezing conditions In full: This is the third time I have run in this event and it is a good way to start the new year; although quite challenging due to the hills it gives a good assessment of your level of fitness (or otherwise).
As others have said, conditions were freezing but special thanks are due to the organizers, marshalls and others who enabled the event to go ahead, and for similing when they must have been frozen! Date of review: January 4, 2010
In short: Cold and Hilly In full: Great fun, another freezing morning but after hat and gloves, shades were the most useful bit of kit, glorious day. I tend notto focus on the view (breathing is enough!) but it did look lovely today. Thanks to all for organising such a smooth race once again.
In short: Well worth a couple of days off the beer In full: Enough to shake you out of New Year's lethargy. Brilliant work from Tadworth to get this on given the icy conditions. Not as hard as I'd been led to belive but perhaps the icy, rather than muddy conditions, were a blessing. Date of review: January 3, 2010
In short: Tough but fun In full: As above, a tough run that is 2 laps and i nearly made the hill 2nd time around, had to have a 50mtr walk, very friendly and encouraging marshalls, will be back next year Date of review: January 3, 2010
In short: Hilly, but worth it In full: Well organised, good sign posting, friendly marshals. I always look forward to the home made flapjacks at the 7M water station. I don't like hills and always suffer, but love the sense of satisfaction after the race. Date of review: January 3, 2010
In short: Very good as always In full: Extremely well-organised and enjoyable race. Nice atmosphere, nice marshall, even nice car park people. If it was only a couple of days further away from the Knacker Cracker I might be able to run it without pain; but that is my fault really. Date of review: January 3, 2010
In short: Fantastic race - as always In full: A varied and testing course, well-marshaled on a cold and clear day. If you could look up from carefully placing your feet, you could see truly outstanding views of London and the Downs. No faults - gold standard! Well done Tadworth AC. Date of review: January 3, 2010
In short: a very well organised race In full: once again the organisers and marshalls held a good race despite recent weather conditions . a 2 lap course with some tough hill climbs made even harder as i only had one days recovery from the knacker cracker ! however it was another great race to start the new year with .
