In short: Mud, cows, rivers and rain...lovely! In full: Despite my score for PB potential (hills & mud & stiles & a pond!) this was in fact my first 12k and therefore new a PB! Really well organised by a superb running club (i'm not biased!). Quick tip: If you want a good place don't get caught at the back because the stiles really cause serious bottlenecks...but hey, who cares it's just great big fun! Date of review: May 24, 2009
In short: Does what it says on the tin! In full: Very enjoyable race - the poor weather just gave it even more of an 'edge'. The marshals were very encouraging, signing the route very well and the jelly babies after the pond were most welcome! Not a PB race but this is all about getting out and having fun on a Sunday morning with like-minded runners.
Well done to Somer AC for another terrific event and a very swish 10th Anniversary memento! Date of review: May 20, 2009
In short: mud, driving rain, v. cheerful marshalls! In full: Loved it - great race, big variety of terrain, hills and streams. thanks to all the marshalls for keeping us going - especially the jelly baby marshall after the pond! Date of review: May 19, 2009
In short: Mud, wind and fun! In full: My thitd Canter and as evrr it was agaony at the time but fun with hindsight! The extra 2K was also a mixture of fun and pain! A wonderful memento at the end. Only tiny criticism - at the very end of the race is wasn't 100% clear which way to run from the car park to the finish line. That's just trivial, though - terrific race! Date of review: May 19, 2009
In short: A Ideal race if you like to get wet and muddy In full: A good off road fun run with hills, stiles stream and river crossings. Excellent marshalls giving plenty of support even in the wind and rain. Just one comment as a outside to the area, few more directions in finding the Rugby Club would help. Like the memento at the end. Look forward to next year. Date of review: May 18, 2009
