In short: Very well organised - an excellent atmosphere! In full: Tough uphill - a bit of a surprise on the first lap! Then it's much worse when you know it's waiting for you second time around. A very rewarding race. Date of review: July 31, 2005
In short: Great race. In full: Very well organised; turned up an hour before to register on the day and no problems.
The course is tough in that the first 2 and a bit miles are largely uphill - a bit relentless and then a very stiff section that lasts for about a quarter of a mile. The rest of the first circuit is a very welcome downhill, but then you face the trudge up again for the second circuit.
Despite the hills, still a good race for beginners, and plenty of finishers around the 80 minute mark.
Then lashings of tea and scones to follow in one of Harrogate's thousands of tea rooms.
In short: You have got to work hard but the rewards are there. In full: A good race with a couple of ups and a few more downs. Very well organised and marshalled. Certainly not flat but fron a lad fron the pennines not hilly either. Thanks, I'll be back. Date of review: July 31, 2005
