In short: Tough, great fun, love it!!! In full: The organisation is difficult, mainly as many (including me) enter on the day 'cos we're worried about the weather. Otherwise, well organised and marshalled. Date of review: January 9, 2012
In short: Excellent course, great scenery, bumpy with a fast finish In full: Excellent value, free coffee, hotdog and wispa bar after the race most welcome! Self service water was a bit awkward and in short supply, and registration was chaotic with just one desk. The course more than makes up for these usual issues - I'll get there earlier next year. Some very grumpy and reckless local car drivers near the finish area!! Date of review: January 9, 2012
In short: Scenery was great, hilly first half but a good post christmas workout. In full: Everyone that organises a race for us to run deserves our thanks. This is a nice country race with fantastic views. It does have a couple of hills to keep it more than interesting and a nice cup of tea waiting at the finish. I enjoyed it very much and it has kick started my VLM training off a treat. Thank you again to all those who put themselves out so i could run on a Sunday again!
In short: Hard work - but well worth the effort In full: As mentioned in last years reviews the hills at 3k and 7k are pretty tough going but a great feeling once conquered. Atmosphere great - could have been quicker (and friendlier) at the registration desk but over all really enjoyed it and will be back next year (to try harder to make the registrar smile)!
