In short: My first 10k. Fantastic friendliness. User friendly. Hard course, but a great acheivement to finish. Would recomend it to new runners, just for the support from the other runners. Thanks to the copius route markers and Andy Fay for organising Date of review: February 22, 2006
In short: Lots of fun - but very tough! In full: Lots of fun - but very tough! Perhaps not the best for beginners (which we are) Very well organised, fab marshalls and lovely sweep (Steve)without who we may still be on one of the hills. Might even do it again next year!

In short: Something for everyone wishing for a challenge In full: For an off road route that has been well planned and presents some good challenges (downhill as well as up) this is a great race. For a first race the organisers has got the knack! Dr Rob has lent his terrific experience to make it a must for next year’s calendar. This was a friendly race for a very good cause. So now we wait for the Munro!
In short: Up there with the best - not bad for a first attempt. In full: A small but extremely friendly and well organised event. Very casual and relaxed- unlike many bigger races and a good atmosphere. Excellent scenery and challenging course - definitely not one for beginners or attempts at a PB (add about 10 minutes to your normal 10K time!!) Will be back next year - it will almost be a shame if it got to popular........ Date of review: February 20, 2006
In short: It was our first 10k and I think we picked a tough one! But in an odd way we really 'enjoyed' it! We were to feel really welcome by the organisers and they were really interested in that we were raising money for our chosen charity. In full: The marshalls were great. Huge thanks to Steve (sweep) we really need him! Hope to see you next year. Date of review: February 20, 2006
