In short: Fantastic friendly half in beautiful surroundings In full: Really good dayout. Activities laid on for the family, including a mini highland games. course is pretty flat with undulations, and a couple of off road sections. Water in bottles which was good. Date of review: April 4, 2013
In short: Beautiful countryside - a lovely run which I'd definitely do again. In full: Throughly enjoyed this race. It was very well organised throughout, from the marshals at the car park to the finish area with each runner getting a mention as they approached the line.
The course was great - some short off-road stretches and gentle undulations which led to fast downhill areas.
Goody bags were great - lovely race t-shirt in ladies as well as gents fit, and some Crathes Castle bits and pieces. I'll definitely enter this race again.
Great day out for everyone as there were activities for families and spectators throughout the day too. Date of review: September 17, 2011
In short: Fantastic scenery and company. breathtaking and a real mixture of surfaces and scenery to take it. Hills hard but 2.5 mile downhill at end blew you away with the castle in view in its glory at the end. In full: Pressure to raise money but appreciate the Foundations angle but don't have to do it. Will give a donation as such a great day. Shame didn't reach the 300 competitor mark but really worth thinking about next year everyone. Really friendly. Great goodybag as well.
