In short: The hills are very testing but with a long downhill as a reward. In full: This is my second year at this event and it seems to get better each time. A really well organised event with the best T-shirt to date. Will be back again next year. Date of review: September 4, 2007
In short: Yes it's worth it. In full: When you are trying to make time up, on the way down, it tests your lactic threshhold pace. Please, on hill races, a course profile in my view, is as essential as the course map. Date of review: September 3, 2007
In short: A testing course, mixing long steep climbs with fast downhill sections. Gloroious scenary at the end and quite technical in assesing performance expectations Date of review: September 3, 2007
In short: Tough race but very enjoyable In full: Well organised, nice scenic route, tough first 4 miles and bit of a climb on the last mile (testing) thoroughly enjoyable and one to add to my race calendar. Excellent tee shirt. Date of review: September 2, 2007
In short: In short, superb event - a credit to the organisers In full: Wooo. The first 4 miles were a beast but fantastic route, the marshalling was top-notch, really well-organised water stations, great start and finish, friendly atmosphere.
I decided a year ago that I was never going to be as quick as I used to be so I would do local races that are a bit different. I'm so glad I did - I bloody loved this event.
A really good t-shirt to top it off. Date of review: September 2, 2007
