In short: Great route, good atmosphere, and goodies are worth the pain In full: The mixture of a very serious course with "loopy" (well "loopy" looking at least) runners made this race special. Date of review: January 13, 2010
In short: Tough as old boots, but hilarious In full: A very tough course, up and down and up and down etc - you get the picture. Hilarious fancy dress from loads of people and great atmosphere. Date of review: January 5, 2010
In short: Best running event I have ever taken part in! In full: Fantastic way to start the year. Amazing atmosphere, with most people in fancy dress (including thongs, knight of ni, landed gentry etc). Slowest runners start first and lot of people walking up the hills, so wasn't left behind, as I thought I might be.
Great post race goodies - proper winter running top with all competitors names on, fleecy hat, soup, sandwiches, carrots, beer.
Loads of free photos available, as well as professional ones. Date of review: January 5, 2010
In short: absolutely made the first day of this new decade. I'd never done it before and smiled all the way round. It was hard but it was such fun...even after 4 hours sleep! In full: I immediately emailed Rob to thank him and everyone that was part of it . I loved the race and the atmosphere, the fact it was freezing but marshalls were still jolly and present. Initially we were worried about fancy dress, but it made it so special. I was a rather unladylike fairy and my friend was a dalmation and we cheered each other on with comments and praise. Seriously well done to the organisers....with cheese and pickle sanis and soup at the end. And a top that fitted. Yey! Date of review: January 4, 2010
