In short: Windy but fun In full: A great event with several testing hills, well organised with a great t-shirt and fantastic bacon rolls at the end! Could have done with an extra water station on the first lap but never mind - i'll be back. Date of review: January 21, 2008
In short: Well run event, good course, great atmosphere In full: Back for a third year and congratulations go to Yaxley RR for taking note of last years comments. Organisation was spot on, weather was ideal, being part of the A1 series made for added competition, shame I'm unfit at the moment and had a awful run. Date of review: January 21, 2008
In short: undulating course, well organized but diffculty parking and no showers In full: Not a course for PB's but with an eye on the London marathon it's 15 miles of quite tough undulating hills is ideal preparation. Plenty of chatty people on the way round to keep you going. Ghandi. Date of review: January 21, 2008
In short: Good atmosphere, well orgainsed In full: Hills to make you smile and a wind you want at your back I think about sums up the experience. Great organisation with the marshalls being supportive and often downright funny. They made me smile despite cricking my neck to look up the final hill. Date of review: January 21, 2008
In short: Good early season race to gauge whether you worked off the Christmas excessa and kicked off the training sufficiently towards that spring marathon. In full: Love this event. Organisation by Yaxley RR is spot on from directions to parking, park'n'ride, marshalling/support, and pre/post race refreshments (at reasonable cost). Good value - quality t-shirt and goodie bag. Attractive rural route, little traffic, and a couple of hills to shake things up.
4th time here so definately an event that appeals to me, and I'll be back next year.
Thanks to everyone involved in making this a great event. Date of review: January 20, 2008
