In short: I forgot how hard this race is! In full: Rememberance Sunday. A poinient start with the last post, a firework salute and all competitors wearing poppies. Very much a feel good run...once you've finished! Prefered last year's course though. Date of review: January 20, 2009
In short: Never again, well not until next year In full: The one race I do make sure I do every year. Great race from the two minute silence at the start to the end with a little bit of mud thrown in for good luck Date of review: November 22, 2008

In short: Mud, Mud Glorious Mud... In full: One of the best ways to spend a Sunday morning!! The combination of mud, water, mud and more mud makes the 9 and a bit miles fly by. Great organisation and the cheerful spectators, marshalls and competitors make this race a truly uplifting experience. Unless you are alergic to having fun do this race!

In short: Anyone for a wallow?? In full: Don't believe anything they tell you about this race - it's ten times worse than you could imagine but a hundred times more fun than you imagine anything like that could be!
Very touching at the start with the 2 mins silence and the Last Post. Everyone wearing a poppy.
I'd seen the photos but nothing prepared me for the reality of the mud, the water, the mud and .... more mud! And the water .... cold ... very cold ... and you just don't want to think what may lurk beneath!
I was beginning to really embrace the concept and replace my grimace with a grin when I had one tumble too many and had to be carted off with a twisted ankle :-(
I'll be back next year ... it takes a lot more than an bit of English mud to beat this Celt. Date of review: November 11, 2008
