In short: Great race, beautiful scenery In full: A well-organised, friendly race. It was a hot day so water stations very helpful and in right places! I thought the biscuits were a nice, unexpected touch! Date of review: December 7, 2009
In short: Pleasantly surprised In full: Thought this would be a challenging nightmare but ran it only 15 secs off my (very flat) pb. A couple of the km markers were a bit wappy but will definately be back next year.
In short: Great Scenery and all welcome In full: Organisation was good, easy free parking, lots of music etc prior to the race. However there were huge queues at the toilets and the start was chaotic. It was not chip timed so everyone was trying to be as close to the start as possible and it was a case of run for your life to find some space, however when the person in front of you is running with a dog on a lead that's not too easy! It was hillier than I expected but the scenery was lovely. It was humid so the extra water station was welcome. Marshalls were great too. It was also faster than I thought, probably why I got my PB in this run, trying to keep up! I would possibly do it again but would be more tempted if it were chip-timed. Date of review: July 21, 2009
In short: tree-mendous! In full: A good day out in beautiful scenery...the hills got a bit challenging towards the end but my lack of hill training was to blame - I live in one of the flattest parts of England! Very well organised, would like to run it again next year (after I've practised running up a few more hills!) Date of review: July 21, 2009
In short: Great race with some challenging hills In full: Good marshalls although 1 didn't know the route when my husband was asking if there was anywhere he could go to see me on the course. Great course my first trail race and def harder than a road race but very enjoyable. Date of review: July 21, 2009
In short: well organised, excellent facilities, really nice run through the woods. In full: One of the best organised events I've been to with a real family atmosphere. Nice wide paths through the woods with enough hills to make it interesting. Date of review: July 20, 2009
