In short: The hardest race I have ever done, even my arms and shoulders ached which is a new one on me! Having said that I was chuffed to bits when I finished it and have been boring everyone about it since. Date of review: July 7, 2005
In short: The most difficult physical challenge I've ever taken on; I'm still hobbling about 4 days after! Makes the London Marathon seem easy now. A great run (in retrospect!) Date of review: July 6, 2005
In short: Great views, and hard work up and down the hills - but you don't choose to do this one cos it's easy! In full: Only gripe is that I got lost twice which cost me a few places, but this is effectively a fell-run, so that's part of the challenge.
Despite being a very tough run, it has a mixed field so you can go at any pace Date of review: July 5, 2005
In short: Fantastic Race! Definately one of the hardest 1/2 marathons in the UK. I'm aching in places I never thought possible. The support from the other runners was fantastic. Well done to everyone! Date of review: July 5, 2005
