In short: What a great experience In full: I have to say that in my five years of racing this was one of the most enjoyable and well run races I have ever completed. Now, I really didn;t think I would be saying that when I drew back the curtains and looked out at the snow filled skies and bitterly cold and strong wind thatt was lowing in from the East.
I believe this was the first year of this race and based on my experience it is going to have a great future. The orginasation was exceptional. The marshals, despite the conditions, were some of the friendliest and encouraging I have ever experienced.
The course itself was attractive, although very open, so the conditions were pretty touch going. however, this race attracted over 200 runners on one of the worst weather conditions we will experience this year, and if the beaming smiles at the end were anything to go by, they will all be coming back next year.

In short: A lovely course possibly pb potential if not so windy In full: A lovely well organised event on quite country lanes just wish it wasn't sooooo cold & windy. A pretty & undulating course & many thanks to the marshalls who remained very cheery & supportive despite the face that they must have been absolutly frozen Date of review: February 1, 2009
In short: A well organised race. A challenging course, particularly with the wind and cold. Thanks to all the marshalls and people manning the drinks stations. Excellent momento. I'll be back next year, when the weather may be a bit kinder. Date of review: February 1, 2009
In short: very,very windy & - tough for a beginner In full: Only started running in November 08 so found the course quite challenging. Was very well organised and the marshalls were excellent. Beautiful place, shame about the snow and winds! Date of review: February 1, 2009
In short: A bit chilly, a little hilly, great race! In full: Lovely course, a well run event. A decent test which was made interesting by a -5c cross wind. A big thanks to the cheery/part-frozen marshalls. I could'nt fault this race, nice country roads/tracks mainly, only saw a handful of cars. Def. pb potential, my quickest 10 for 11 years. Memento is fab'. See you next time gydac, this is an asset to the Norfolk calender. (Thanks for the quick last mile Natalie!). Date of review: February 1, 2009
In short: Nice route, but so windy, oh so windy! In full: slow but very very comfortable. Windy - oh so windy - sporadic snow but never felt like I couldn't do it. Longest run for a very long time, so very pleased indeed. Forgot my garmin, and enjoyed taking the pressure off a bit. Was undulating but no killer hills. Will def. do again Date of review: February 1, 2009
