In short: Don't usually do hilly or multi-terrain but suprisingly enjoyable! In full: Brilliantly organised and despite the hills and rough terrain (including lots of tree roots at about mile 7-8 ish!) I actually enjoyed it, scenary makes it worthwhile. Fabulous Marshalls, and I didn't have to queue for a toilet once!! My legs hurt like hell still, but it was worth it! Date of review: October 11, 2011
In short: Great course, wonderfully enthusiastic mashalls but oh darned tricky hills! In full: Really great venue and the course a nice mix of terrains and some very tricky hills. Superb organisation and so nice to have smiling cheering marshals really lifts your weary limbs on the hills. Great atmosphere before and at the end and enjoyed the goodies. Many thanks to ETL team for a fab day. Date of review: October 10, 2011
In short: Great run In full: Thank you ETL and all the Marshals for another fun race. Well organised and enjoyable morning out. I thought the new route was a bit easier with one less hill, but the trudge back round the A25 cycle path was a pretty tough last couple of miles! Date of review: October 10, 2011
In short: Excellent race.. With hills! In full: Well organised, also would have preferred less running adjacent to A24 and would have liked to have has my I-pod as there was only 200m on a road so not sure of the reasons for banning them-a first in a race for me! Tough enough and a lovely sunny day. Nice T-shirt, beer and chocolate at the end. Date of review: October 9, 2011
In short: Fantastic route, great views, well organised (and great weather) In full: Great new route from Denbies, plenty of aid stations, well stocked with PowerBar, jelly babies etc. Plenty of marshalls in the right places and nice to see them cheering runners on. A good number of supporters out on route as well for trail run.
Weather was awesome.
Got to borrow a nice t-shirt from the Gore stand to try in the run. Got a nice massage post race from FineFettle. Got given a bottle of beer. Couldn't have had a better day out. Date of review: October 9, 2011
In short: Superb! In full: Great route, better than last year. Amazing organisation with friendly marshals and results posted on a board very soon after finishing. Would prefer a little less running next to the A24 but apart from that a superb route. Date of review: October 9, 2011
