In short: Beautiful scenery and hard work but well worth it with fantastic cakes. In full: Definitely a winner and a much better course than the Terminator, which is staged by the same organiser in the same area. Fantastic views some hard hills but lost of great multi-terrain running through woods, fields and over hilltops. Don't miss the next one! Date of review: March 31, 2005
In short: Really felt I had achieved something!! In full: Brilliant, rough, tough but having gone on all fours up one bit, it could only get better. the views, friendliness and cheerfullness of everyone made it a super day. PS who WAS that bloke in the red shorts, whokept going up and down the same ghastly hills all day? Date of review: January 19, 2005
In short: Hills, mud and sun what more could you ask for on a Sunday morning. In full: Great route, ceratinly challenging. Oh and watching the deer sprint down the "big hill" as I was crawling up it was a great sight. Just need a megaphone at the start, couldn't hear a word. Date of review: January 19, 2005
In short: The organisers notes on the website don't do this race justice. In full: Mud, hills, more mud, oh and more hills. Great race. Nice mix of mud, hills and flat. Excellent organisation, and the sun came out, what more can you ask for?
The BIG climb was a bit of a shock, I ended up on hands and knees like so many others, but it wasn't too long which was probably just as well.
A race to look forward to for next year!
Thanks to all involved. Date of review: January 17, 2005
In short: My first multi terrain race. Can't wait for the next. In full: I do wonder what it would have been like in heavy rain? I would probably still be trying to get up the 'big hill'. Very well orgainised. See you all there next year.
