In short: Can't stop coming back.. In full: Now these races are hard as nails ( i did the 64 miler) but everything from the stunning scenery, the truly wonderful marshals who encourage you in every way, the medics at the checkpoints, food stations which had loads of food, and the finish was excellent in every way. I said after that i'm never gonna run it again because i was so shattered but an hour later i can't wait for 2016, Thanks Mudcrew for another great event. Date of review: August 18, 2015
In short: One of the most rewarding and challenging races I have ever done. In full: The Mudcrew know how to organise and run a race. The whole team do an extremely amazing job with the race, from start to finish. The pre-race organisation (information sent to you),parking on the day, safety checks pre-race, marshals, check points, feed station, and the support at the finish - everything was superb. A really great event for running clubs to have a weekend racing event as there is something for everyone (11, 20, 32 or 64 mile races). It's a brutal race but the scenery and support along the way is amazing. Highly recommend. Date of review: August 18, 2015
In short: Amazing Friendly Challenging Exciting Must Do Event!! In full: This race has it all; MudCrew organisation second to none; all checkpoints had medics and excellent crew keen to assist in any way. From start to finish its an awesome event; life feels void afterwards as it's over and done with. Can't wait for the Plague 2016! Date of review: August 18, 2015
In short: Mud Crew Yeah! In full: My longest distance yet,100k. The support, banter and encouragement you get from start to finish and the genuine joy from Mud Crew when you cross that line is unrivalled. They spare no expense looking after you. Then there is the after party....other coastal trail race organisers don't come close to what Mud Crew give you. Date of review: August 17, 2015
In short: My favourite race of the year In full: With the organisation of a Swiss watch factory, the support that could only come from residents of God’s (or whichever fiction entity you believe in) own county and the beautiful coastal views, this is one of the best races of the year.
Make no mistake, it is a tough race, it’ll make your legs ache for days after, but it’s worth it. Every uphill step was forgotten about as I sat on the grass enjoying my Cornish salami pizza watching the last few runners cross the finishing line with huge smiles on their faces, vowing never to do it again, but after they’d caught their breath form the last long climb they were soon talking about stepping up a distance in 2016.
This race is addictive! Another fantastic Mudcrew event.
In short: New legs for runner 283! In full: My first run of this type and distance and I may have been spoiled by how well he event was organised and marshalled. Stunning location is only matched by the brutality of the unrelenting shifts in gradient, my legs are not working how they should at the moment. Just the sort of challenge I was looking for though, 32 mile next year perhaps? Epic in scale but intimate in character, great effort from all involved. Date of review: August 17, 2015
