In short: If you're not from Yorkshire, come and find out what a real hill looks like. In full: Yes, mile markers would have been nice, but what a fantastic job the marshalls and organisers did in making such an awkward (for them) course so easy to follow. Friendly atmosphere, great views from the top of the hill, beautiful sunny morning, every terrain imaginable, THAT hill and the river crossing at the end make this a definite date for my 2006 calendar. Liked the momento - a shot glass - makes a nice change from another T-shirt. Great stuff ! Date of review: May 14, 2005
In short: Never knew industrial Yorkshire could boast such nice trails. The bluebells at the end were amazing. Would have appreciated some mile markers as had no idea how far to go ! Friendly marshals and lots of support around the course. Date of review: May 10, 2005
In short: One not to forget ! stunning scenery, awsome hill, Excellent river crossing. In full: Hard race, but well worth the effort will stay with me for a long time. Best race yet ! Date of review: May 10, 2005
In short: Shocker for a first ever event, but great fun when I had finished In full: This was the first ever event I had taken part in, and I have to agree that hill was a bit of a shocker! But over all a great race and one I will be back to next year. Thanks to all for making my first ever event a good one. Date of review: May 9, 2005
In short: Calling it 'hilly/undulating' is Yorkshire understatement. The cobbles of Troop Lane were the worst hill I have encountered in 20plus years of events. A race full of Yorkshire grit and tyke-like charm. Do it (but don't complain ) Date of review: May 9, 2005
In short: Great race. Very well organised with great marshals. In full: Very much enjoyed my first Bluebell Trail.The variety of countryside and terrain made for a very interersting run. Found the "big hill" hard work but pleased that most of the runners around me decided to walk it.
As a road runner I missed having mile markers and had to keep asking the marshals how far we had run.
Thought the river crossing was most unusual and made for a great finish.
It took me almost as long as doing the Sheffield half last week.
Thanks to all the marshals who were most encouraging and I was pleased with my shot glass and superior Kit Kat and tea.
