In short: It's a totally bonkers event, but definately one for the diary!! This has got to be the craziest race of the season. In full: Unless I was seeing things I saw a guy dressed as Spiderman on a cross bike with a broken saddle.
Pregnant ladies taking numbers at the finish and a start view covered in grass........
Only when tilting the head backwards could you see the way to go it was that steep!
A bit less muddy than last year in the start and finish fields, if my memory serves me right.
Nice to see so many supporters. Nice to see that tree trunk as well....almost didn't!.....well placed marshall!!!!!
I especially enjoyed the spectator cheers as you cleared rocks at the campsite road on the way back....just before nearly breaking a leg in the gully just beyond.
Thanks to all the marshalls and the pub staff / landlord. 2 helpings of pie and peas and a pint reminded me why I'm not a good runner. Cracking event! Date of review: August 1, 2011
