In short: Did anyone say muddy? Fantastic atmosphere, hills, mud, water, what more could you want? In full: First time I have done this race. Challenging, but not impossible. Marshalls were really encouraging. Walked more of it than I wanted to, but will be back next year Date of review: December 2, 2010
In short: Brilliant fun, enjoyed every minute of it! In full: Mud/bogs/near verticle hills, this was the first time that I have atempted anything like this and it was brilliant fun. Ran with a group of ladies and we had such a laugh,even though we were nearly the last finishers. Will definitely sign up again for next year! Date of review: November 29, 2010
In short: i completely forgot just how muddy this race was In full: The mud really does make this quite a different type of challenge. Its not as hilly as hellrunner but the sheer quantity of mud and the physical effort needed to get out of it certainly makes up for it.
it is brilliant fun, from the sandy puddles to the muddy river bed to the 'up to the waist' bog which you have to pull yourself out of.

In short: dont wear white ! In full: loved every minute of this race , not as bad as last year but still great fun. there is something about these races where the time and distance seem to fly by if only all ten mile runs where this enjoyable i would have jumped at the chance do it it all again as soon as i finished but i guess i will have to wait till next year. great goody bag and t-shirt and very well organised.

In short: It wasn't as bad as it was last year... In full: Another excellent event. Whilst the entry fee isn't cheap, the goodie bag and tech t-shirt make it reasonable value for money. Was more enjoyable this year due to the slightly less dramatic conditions, although I'm still glad to have experienced last year's hellish proportions.
Makes the Hellrunner's Bog of Doom look like a bit of a puddle... Date of review: November 24, 2010
In short: Muddy, filthy fun In full: Brilliant XC run with lots of mud. First 3 miles is pretty tame then you hit sand trenches full of muddy water. Then lots of mud thereafter. The final mile or so is deep mud but much easier than last year's (when everyone was having to pull each other out of the waist/chest bog!). 9 odd miles is plenty on this one. Great goody bag, t-shirt and parking is excellent. Date of review: November 24, 2010
In short: If you like to be have mud up to your nipples - do it. In full: One of the best organised races of this type I have had the pleasure to take part in. Parking brilliant, right next to race area, the race itself has a good mix of faster sections and chest deep sludge and hills. Looking at the photos it looks like I'm trying to put Dynarod out of business. Well filled goody back, good technical T-shirt. Results service did what it says it does.
