In short: Lovely off roader with fantastic views. In full: My first hilly race - I hurt afterwards and wasn't able to run every hill... this year, however next... Put off at the start by many speedy club runners but the marshalls and organisers were very friendly. Good charity race well worth doing - if you're in the area next year, get running.

In short: it just got better! In full: everything i wrote a year ago, and more. Despite an overnight 3rd party hitch requiring a reversal of the normal route, the organisation and delivery was absolutely perfect. If anything the climb/outward leg was harder than last year's (but that's better!) and there were some top opportunities to really open up on the way back.
Its a really friendly race and so deserves a larger field - 100 would be easily accommodated. Loads of parking, showers etc. the proceeds for this race go to charity too, so nobody's making a mint from it at all.
Really recommended... if you are reading this, thinking about running it in 2010 then its a no brainer - do it. And bring a friend - you will NOT be disappointed. Date of review: September 27, 2009
