In short: Fantastic Organisation, lots of hilly and muddy challenges, great event. In full: Really challenging but enjoyable, the mud was hard work for me but it offered training for muscles I didn't know I had. The organisation was brilliant. Will be back next year thank you.

In short: Very very muddy - and who left those hills there? In full: My first ever race - and hopefully the muddiest one I'll ever do! The beginner friendliness rating above is actually an average of a very welcoming bunch of fellow runners and easy organisation, and a course that could easily upset some people! It was very challenging in the very deep mud in places, especially when combined with very steep hills to make it feel like you're running up a stream, some bits would have suited a salmon better than a runner!
I'll be back but will still grumble about the mud! Hoping for a slightly drier one next year! Date of review: February 11, 2013
In short: Another great race! Missed last year in the snow, but was glad to be back this year for all of the mud!! I don't think it has ever been quite this bad!! I loved it, even though I went flying along by the river!!! The mud just adds to the enjoyment!! Date of review: February 10, 2013
In short: Rain, Mud,Rain,Mud....Amazing! In full: To say this was a challenge was a mild understatement two days of non stop rain made it at times difficult but a really enjoyable run a good mix of ups and downs,lots of encouragement from fellow runners and marshals a medal and a mars bar.Well done Amazing Feet.
