In short: That was a Hummmmmdinger alright !!!!! In full: It was my first time but I’m all knowing now. Really friendly marshals all the way around the route and that’s a compliment coming from a plodder at the back of the course. The uphill slogs were tough but running downhill felt just as merciless on my old knees. Mind you if it wasn’t a challenge it wouldn’t be half the fun! Love the T-shirt, fab design and great to get a free photo at the end, thank you. Only one low point and that was when a 4x4 type vehicle forced the female runner in front of me into the hedge. How rude was that from a tweed jacket wearing bloke? I guess he’d lost the plot after getting caught up with runners earlier on the road. Overall, a friendly event, superb location and excellent organisation. Date of review: February 21, 2011
In short: Hilly, challenging race. In full: Great organisation as ever. Great t-shirt and free photo. Hilly route that doesn't get any easier but I must be getting better as I managed to run both of the shocking hills this year. Marshalls are great and atmosphere lovely. The winners are incredibly fast and my hat goes off to them over such a demanding course. See you next year... This was my 4th year, as have done this race from the first one. Perhaps I will get an anniversary prize next year.
