In short: please rate this race if you did as it won't be in RW's top races where it should be!! This is the toughest off-road race - period!! In full: Third grizzly in a row but sadly was slower than last year thanks to colds which upset my training, feeling alot less wrecked than in previous years. Would love to do it in under the magic 3 hours. A bit dry and cold this year. I didn't really like the mickey mouse section between 8 and 9.5 miles - we ran 1.5 miles to move about 300 yards! Otherwise a great course - loved the muddy bits esp. through the gateway where the cows had been! Date of review: March 8, 2010
In short: Its got everything you want in a race In full: Great race beach/water/mud/hills/steps/bogs/and lots of cheerful marshalls and supporters. Well done Axe Vally Runners made my day. Date of review: March 8, 2010
In short: Well Organised, loads of happy Marshall's, beautiful views. In full: Atmosphere was great, really upbeat and motivating. Support was great, hills numerous. Mud didn't seem as bad as the Terminator last weekend, beach running was exhausting. Loved the big climb up the cliff face, it was my first but not my last the encounter of the Grizzly!

In short: Well done Axe Valley, top notch again. In full: Thanks to all the excellent marshals and the entertainment around the course. As usual a rather challenging course. Took a bit of a tumble in the bog, there is mud in every body orifice.
In short: Sadistic course but very welcoming and friendly. In full: Axe Vally Runners - you are a bunch of sadistic gits. That was harder than any marathon I've done but it was worth it. Date of review: March 7, 2010
In short: Wet - cold - muddy - brilliant In full: Do I get the record for putting in the latest review? My third Grizzly but my best performance in some of the worst conditions. Yet another cult t-shirt to add to my collection. The wind and the mud was endless but adds to the kudos of this event. Can't wait till next year. Date of review: August 25, 2006
