In short: Lovely race in muddy conditions! In full: Very well organized race...Good parking, good 'race goodies' great run..Would definitely do again..The wet and mud added to the excitement!. Date of review: January 25, 2009
In short: Well organized, friendly event In full: Reminded me of the Grim when we hit the flood water (although I don't remember cars making waves at the Grim ;-) Very friendly event, well organized. Appreciated the supportive marshalls who were on hand at every turn. The shorter distance suited me and the canal towpath was much more scenic than I'd expected. Date of review: January 25, 2009
In short: well organised, great extras. good mix of athlete In full: the course changes were at last miniute and even tho the course was shortened, i felt it was a improvement on a already good course. Date of review: January 25, 2009
In short: Good fun going through the puddles In full: Last minute change of distance was a shame but found the course very flat and quite fast. Very muddy though along the canal stretches, had to be very aware of the low bridges and saw one nasty accident (hope the guys head isn't too sore tomorrow morning) involving the entrance to one of the bridges. The marshalling was very, very good and 2:09 should be very proud of their team. Will be back next year.. Date of review: January 25, 2009
In short: Lots of mud and `wide' puddles. Flatter than last year. In full: I really enjoyed this run. The organisation was excellent with good facilities at the Lakeside and plenty of friendly marshalls.
The stretches along the canal were very scenic but I had to concentrate on not slipping over due to the mud and puddles.
One advantage of the different route was the absence of the steep hill that nearly finished me off in last year's run! Date of review: January 25, 2009
