In short: I have a new favourite race. In full: Absolutely brilliant. This was just over 9 miles, frigging great laugh. Got absolutely soaked, covered in mud, laughed my ass off and had a brilliant time. If you take your running really seriously, don't bother with this unless you're willing to have a laugh - it's a fantastic event though! Date of review: November 15, 2012
In short: Hills, Hills, and Wet Muddy Hills In full: Awesome event this year, loved every energy sapping mile. Much tougher route than the previous year, only helped by the extra water features all the way round the course. Love the T-shirt, much more creative than last years. Cant ever take this event too seriously.... its a fun day out rather than a full on race, but did have some slight concerns over the lack of marshalls / first aid out on the course. Baggage area also needs looking at / organising a little better. Guy getting my bag just seemed to vanish when he couldnt find it, and gave up., Ended up standing around for 10 minutes freezing cold, before resorting to going in and finding it myself ! Will be back again I am sure ! Date of review: November 12, 2012
In short: One to have ticked off!! In full: Glad to have taken part but not sure I would do again. Agree with the comment about lack of First Aid/marshalls-went to assistance of guy who hurt his knee and who was diabetic-no assistance in sight. Hope he was ok. Delay at finish to collect medal far too long in cold wet clothing and changing area ridiculously small. A big thanks to the 2 guys who helped me through the Bog of Doom-at 4ft 11 I really struggled with the depth and cold!! Thanks so much guys x Date of review: November 12, 2012
In short: Not to be taken too seriously in the run calendar, but an awful lot of fun..... In full: At points, it made me wonder 'do we really need to go down the hill, just to come back up'?
It would have also been better to have some more straight runs, as others had said existed in previous years?
Given at points of the course, you are upto your nexk in freezing cold, filthy muddy water, a bit more consideration to changing facility at the end would have been appreciated, perhaps even a shower???
All said and done, great run, lots of laughs, very nice organisation. Well done. Date of review: November 11, 2012
In short: Much harder hills this year In full: Some changes to course added lots of tough hills...to be fair even a mountain goat couldn't run up many of them and hey got annoying in th end. Always a friendly bunch though. Not impressed with first aid after we helped a collapsed chap near bog...I will be writing to the organisers..glad it wasn't me but hope he is ok.
