In short: Tough, but worth it! In full: My 3rd year at this race, and how it's gathering in numbers now word is getting round. A great - but challenging - course. Thank goodness for fine weather otherwise could be pretty grim!
Well organised by local Lions club, although my only gripes are the same as last year; Lack of a dedicated website (still can't find any results!) and some isolated areas of the route could probably do with a marshal or two just from the point of view if anyone suffers an injury, you're a long way from help.
Great send off & presentation by the Mayor. Ace grub at the end at race HQ, and all in a fantastic setting. I'll be back for more.
A definite challenge, but well worth the effort Date of review: June 15, 2012
In short: Tough but well worth it! In full: One of the toughest races I've done but very rewarding. Fantastic race in its own right and amazing training for future (flatter!) distance events. Can't wait to return next year. Date of review: June 10, 2012
In short: Tough hilly 10 race, but it's great In full: Great race organised by the Colne Valley Lions, who did a great job. Tough and hilly but the views more than made up for it. Great food for the runners at the end too. Will be back next year Date of review: June 10, 2012
In short: Tough but worth it for the scenery! In full: Definitely a challenging 10 miles with some hard uphills on trails, but then the downhills are great in the second half. Good finish. Friendly runners and organisers. Great refreshments for all runners as part of the reasonable entry fee (and a medal!) A good day! Worth the trip, glad the weather was dry!
In short: tough In full: second time in this race this is a tough race up all the hills but all the hard work pays of when you start running downhill all the way to the finish will be back next year Date of review: June 10, 2012
