In short: Felt like an early cross country race In full: With the rain, mud, low trees and tight corners it felt like a pre season cross country race. Lots of inclines and narrow stages make a pb hard here, so well done to all you who managed one (i got a pw).
The Marshaling and policing was second to none and thier good cheer in constant rain lifted my flagging feet all the way.
Great race and excellent organisation - WELL DONE Date of review: June 25, 2007
In short: So it rained.............. In full: Congratulations Lordshill RR. I really enjoyed this race, the course was good, with a couple of inclines to push into, and even the mud added to the fun! A big thankyou to the marshals, who were all friendly and supportive despite the weather, a credit to your club. The tumbler was a very nice surprise at the finish, especially with the medal as well. I will definately be back in the future, and will recommend it to others. Date of review: June 25, 2007
In short: A very friendly local race In full: The atrocious weather failed to dampen the spirits of the runners!This is one of my favourite races, and the rain, flooded roads and heavy mud, all helped to add to the enjoyment.
The marshalls, organisation etc. were excellent, as usual, and I hope the race continues for years to come.
An engraved whiskey glass, was an unexpected bonus, at the finish!
I will, certainly, be running it again next year, circumstances permitting. Date of review: June 25, 2007
In short: Muddy hell, but great fun. In full: Excellent marshalls and policing. Wasn't expecting it to be a swimming event, but the water added to the fun. The finish came just round a corner though, so there was no time to mount a final charge! Date of review: June 25, 2007
In short: Lots of water and mud, but it kept me cool for a PB In full: Well done to the marshalls, as it couldn't of been fun standing around. Well organised and good value for money. Date of review: June 25, 2007
In short: Lordshill RR put on top race again In full: Once again this was an excellent race, well done Lordshill. Despite running through mud in my best road racing shoes (!) and some 5 inch deep puddles, I enjoyed this race as much as ever. The start/finish car park is an excellent area to congregate and adds tothe atmosphere of the race. Date of review: June 25, 2007
In short: Shame about the weather! In full: V friendly and well-organised race. Marshals v encouraging despite having to stand in the pouring rain for a long time. Appreciated hot showers at the end. Nice course; no real hills. Date of review: June 25, 2007
