In short: What a cracker of an event In full: Thanks to all at Hogweed for staging and organising a really excellent event. Great atmosphere, superb marshals, great welcome at end with cakes and more, nice T shirt. Can't be faulted. Please keep doing it on the same day as Bath so you remain selective for the runners in the know. Date of review: March 6, 2013
In short: Does exactly what it says, what a cracker! In full: Run the same day as Bath but great value, more testing, intimate and friendly. This is a test of stamina, will power and mental toughness. Friendly club, well marshalled race, great refreshments, neat t-shirt which can actually be worn again and a real fitness test all in one. 10 minutes off the M4 the other side from Bath, this annual event deserves much more support and I for one, will be back for more next year.

In short: Fun on the hills In full: Thankyou Hogweed Trotters, marshalls, supporters and all who made this a great race. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our first time at this event. Hills, hills and more hills but we came away with big smiles on or faces knowing we had just run a very challenging course that had truly tested our fitness and resolve! We will be back next year :)
