In short: Mud, mud, hills, water, and more mud! and a bit more water too! In full: I'm sure the mud was extra sticky as my shoes weighed a ton before I got to the water!! Fantastic race, organisation, great marshalls. Great atmosphere and freindly fellow sufferers! Minutes silence and Last Post very moving. I'll be back again! Date of review: November 12, 2006

In short: What a superb race :o) Fantasic Day :o) In full: What a run! Highly enjoyable... LOADS of fun muddy bits, excellent marshalls (smiles, encouragement and chatting all round!), superb organisation, wonderful goody bag and a long sleeved t-shirt, FANTASTICALLY friendly bunch of runners, hot tubs at the end, amazing view out towards Bristol/Bath at the top of the hill with the bridge glinting in the sunlight (that could be why I didn't see the bull!), jellybeans and choclate at the water stations, great supporters as well popping up all over the place, showers still hot at the end. I smiled from the start to the finish! What more can I say... can I enter for 2007 now????
It's a shame you have to put down PB potential for this one, as it's such a great social run - deserves 100% for this one! Date of review: November 12, 2006
In short: Promised a dirty weekend......Boy did I get one! In full: Well done to Bitton RR for hosting the best race I've ever done! Despite my poor time (which I'm blaming on the Cheddar Half day before!) the organisation was first class as were the Marshals; tee shirts; goody bags; Jelly beans; Hot tubs and the all round great atmosphere. Perhaps next year some chilled champagne for the hot tub! Date of review: November 12, 2006
In short: Mud glorious mud and a bit of farmyard essence, and oh how it stuck to the trainers - reckon I had a couple of kilos on each foot before the water! What a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Thank you Bitton RR. In full: It had a really great atmosphere, everyone smiling and having fun. The pre-race rememberance service was excellent, although I was nowhere near the start when the hooter sounded - a bit more time to get to the road next year? All in all though a fantastic race and very well marshalled with great crowd encouragement especially at the mud bath. Goody bag was excellent and the muddy hot tub ... well just different!
