In short: Beautiful views, Brutal climbs and the best support crew I've ever experienced in a race. In full: Whatever distance you chose to do here its gonna be a challenge. The support along the way was amazing, I was always well fed and well hydrated and left each check point with a smile. I did the 64 mile route and having the other distance races come past you in the morning was great, as almost everyone had words of encouragement to help us get through it.
The course was well marked out so you're not gonna get lost. I look forward to doing this again next year and also some of the other races Mudcrew organise.
Mudcrew don't do easy, but at least you'll be smiling Date of review: August 20, 2014

In short: A tough race for runners put on by runners! In full: My first Red rat having supported a friend last year doing the plague. The 4 distances make it a great option for anyone to run. Make no mistake this is a tough race which ever one you plump for. But the atmosphere, cameraderie amongst fellow runners and superb marshalling will get you to the finish. Stick this one on your running bucket list it won't disappoint! Date of review: August 20, 2014

In short: Seriously hard but so rewarding. In full: After doing the 20 miler in 2012, the 32 miler last year i decided to step up and do The Plague which is 64 miles this year. For weeks i was nervous but after getting to the awesome race village the nerves soon went and it was great chatting to other runners and the organizers 'Mud crew'. The scenery is the best out there, atmosphere is top notch and the organisation is run brilliantly. I'm gonna be buzzing for a very long time. Roll on 2015. Thanks Mudcrew.
