In short: Excellent marshalling, good value, friendly race, tough climbs! In full: 1st time at the 'horror'. Tough climbs and descents with steps up & down. Very dry this year, but could be tricky in wet, muddy conditions. Good range of prizes and good to have showers, changing & refreshments.
Only a slight mistake with results & prizes upset the day at the end. people got prizes they shouldn't have and those that were eligible, didn't get them. However, i'm sure this will be corrected for future years. Other wise, superb all round.
Big thanks to all the organisers, marshalls and other helpers for making this an enjoyable, small, friendly event. And big thanks for the very vocal encouragement by the Marshalls on the last hill. Fantastic! Date of review: April 27, 2011
In short: yet again, great race, mae it different in dust than mud!

In short: Hard hills but lots of fun running down them! In full: First time doing this race - loved the downhill sections, not great at the uphill! Good fun and great encouragement from marshalls especially on that last hill (which really really hurt!). Date of review: April 25, 2011
In short: Great but painful! In full: Lovely event, beautiful scenery, pity it was a bit too hot. Anyone know how long it actually was? I'd like to think it was more than 6 miles but I may be deluding myself! Date of review: April 24, 2011
In short: Hilly and Hot! Who'd have thought it in April In full: A very friendly and scenic race, the marshalls and spectators were inspiring. Was there a bloke dressed in drag on the last big climb, or was I hallucinating ? Date of review: April 24, 2011
In short: only thing missing was the mud - but you can't help the weather In full: Free T; Free pint; glorious day; BBQ; what more could you want? (Oh the race wasn't bad too haha). Excellent value for money - thank you VERY much Bitton Road Runners. You put most of the others to shame! Date of review: April 24, 2011
