In short: Excellent In full: One of the best runs around. Muddy, knee deep water and ditches. Excellent weather this year made it memorable. Nice horse brass to remember the race by, in fact these are the only race stuff I hang up. Well done Bearbrook. Date of review: February 18, 2014
In short: Very tough cross country race In full: Ran this with 3 friends who aren't full on runners. It was the first cross country experience for all of us and it was interesting.
I can't fault the marshals one bit apart from the fact that there were no mile markers. Had no idea as to how far I had run as with stream crossings my phone would have got wet so no gps. But the marshals were reall nice even after having to catch a 15 stone bloke after jumping a stream. A nice brass medal at the end and good atmosphere. I'll do it again but the conditions were very tough Date of review: February 16, 2014
In short: Add this to your race bucket list In full: Great race - a healthy mixture of mud, cow poo, streams, more mud and more cow poo. Well organised, marked and marshalled. Nice mix of terrain, definitely will be back next year Date of review: February 16, 2014
