In short: Interesting course with some fairly long uphill bits. In full: Overall very good.
One bit of feedback for organisers - I (intentionally) arrived at the start area with only about 5 mins to go, and it was a bit difficult to make my way through the faster runners already standing near the start-line. Perhaps open a channel at the side for competitors to go around the back so they can join at the right place for their speed? Date of review: March 1, 2009
In short: Definitely hilly! In full: The uphills seemed worse than I thought,but managed to attack the downhills to get a new pb! Good well organised race, didn't seem crowded at all. Could do with better signing for the race start/car parks. Also, not sure where the free car parks referred to in the paperwork were - had to pay in the station car park. Still, good day out though!!

In short: Loved the hills! In full: Up-and-down course made for lots of variety. Narrow start, but once the race came out of the town and excellent course. Hard uphills and some great downhills too. Nice one! Date of review: March 1, 2009
In short: Very enjoyable race In full: Don't be put off by the hills, what goes up must come down! Ended up beating my PB, thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, well organised and friendly. Date of review: March 1, 2009
In short: With about 1000ft total climbs, this is on the 'hilly' side of 'undulating' I would say! Great marshalling and directions, but a banana at the end would have been welcome instead of the orange! Date of review: March 1, 2009
