In short: Well done again Grass-Roots In full: Well done to the organisers - one of the best races around, and so tough... I think the snow enforced year off last had dulled my memory somewhat, as I had forgotten just how sapping the hills are. Especially the really gratuitous one - you all know the one I mean! Pleasantly surprised at how easy conditions were under foot given the recent rain, shame about the conditions in the car-park, and I'm not just talking about the sheep by-products...
As ever the race was very well organised, and a good time was had by all.
I hope you can resolve the times for the last 94 runners (as I am one of them, but didn't take a watch...) I also hope that Mrs Grass-Roots enjoyed her birthday... Date of review: January 17, 2011
In short: Do it, you really have to, along with the Terminator next month. Flat as a millpond. Honest...... ;-) In full: After the recent rains it was better underfoot than I'd envisioned. Had the craic with a few people on the way round. I want one day to see someone running up the hill you need your hands as much as your feet....Fanatastic organisation, Marshalls were very encouraging. Well done all involved.

In short: Hilly, Hard and Great Fun In full: I had been waiting to do this since late 2009 and was delighted to finish. The organisation was exceptional from the parking to the marshalls, all went like clock work.
The description of the race did not hoodwink you, the hills really were tough.
Loved the bacon sarnies and cakes at the end, will def recommend this to anyone. Got a bit confused with the medal then it was pointed out to me that it wasn't actually a medal.
Big thanks to the organisers Date of review: January 16, 2011
