In short: A great day and more fun than I thought 56 miles would be! In full: It was a brilliant race and everything went like clockwork on the day, obviously helped that the weather was perfect. Great scenery throughout the day and great atmosphere between all the runners. I'd definitely recommend recee trips to get to know the route as there is a lot of potential to get lost. On the organisation front, all fine on the day but not exactly the finest stocked checkpoints and the pre-race help/info was dreadful. They are not very good at responding to queries and questions from participants.
I've put it as one of my all time favourite races as it is my first ultra and it was brilliant. Date of review: September 14, 2010
In short: Great race. First ultra for me but the navigation rather than the distance was the hard part! Well organised and very helpful competitors made it a tremendous day. In full: Make sure you can read a map! Really enjoyed the day, and the weather certainly helped. Terrain was varied but always manageable. 5 checkpoints along the way were all well-staffed and resourced - made it easier than carrying lots of liquid. Date of review: September 12, 2010
In short: Great race with an amazing atmosphere. In full: Fantastic day due to the great friendly atmosphere amongst the competitors and helped by the almost-perfect weather even down to a light rain shower to cool us off.
I never thought that I would enjoy running 56 miles so much! Date of review: September 6, 2010
