In short: A very muddy half In full: A very well organised race with a slightly more difficult off road section which made a change to the country roads which all began to look the same by the end. some mild undulations but not as hilly as i thought it was going to be.
The tshirt at the end is quite nice, as were the jelly babies handed out ataround 7 miles. Date of review: March 4, 2010
In short: Jolly good fun In full: Thanks must go to everyone involved in the organistaion and running of this race, from the enthusiastic youngsters at the baggage area to the incredibly supportive marshals. The muddy section was a little interesting, but made it a different race. The T-shirt is very nice, and the free cup of tea was beautiful. Only wish I could go fast enough for the showers to still be hot, and why am I the only one not looking at the camera in the event photos? Date of review: March 2, 2010
In short: Muddy, cold race with warm marshalls and tea! In full: I didn't feel like i'd run 13 miles! Despite the mud and cold wind, the cheery marshalls and chatty runners made for a great race. I missed the water at mile 7-ish (mis-timed a 'take') and will be forever grateful to the chap who offered me his bottled water later on then 'pulled' me through the last few miles. I'm recently back from injury so a sub 2 made my day!! Organisation superb, encouraging marshalls and a good route. Everyone should try this race! Date of review: March 1, 2010

In short: A well organised race. Very friendly and supportive marshalls. The off road Viking Way is always the most challenging part of the course. I'll be back again next year. Date of review: March 1, 2010
