In short: Wonderful, fun race In full: This was my fourth time. I love this one; very varied terrain with the super middle section through the woods. Great fun. And to the foul-mouthed little runner who gave me so much abuse; maybe you're doing the wrong sport, mate! Date of review: June 3, 2010
In short: Challenging, great atmosphere, family friendly, fun, great prizes, fantastic race ! In full: This race was an experience to say the least! A fantastic mix of road, field, woodland, stiles, kissing gates & shoe sucking mud! I was entertained en-route by a choir, drummers, enthusiastic marshalls,& music!Well organised with fun run for the kids too! A great prize giving & party afterwards at the local pub.Great for families & singlies alike Date of review: June 2, 2010
In short: Wet, cold, deep, fierce, shoe-sucking mud. In full: Excellent organisation and marshalling, a very friendly race but not for the faint-hearted. Free Mars bar, tea and fruit at the end with a hose to get rid of most of the mud. Date of review: May 25, 2008
In short: Nice Day Out In full: Nice Day Out, the stairs section was killing. nice T-shirts available (a pity you had to pay another £7.00, not most other races they are free if you complete the race such as the Muddy Woody). Race was nice and challenging with stair section (yet not as tough as the Beacon race in Malvern), other than that no major climb. A word of warning run close to front in the first section, as I heard some people get delayed 45 seconds or longer on the first set of gates.
In short: This was my first race since leaving school nearly 40 years ago!!! The best bit was being sung to by a couple of choristers as we queued at the kissing gate outside the church!! Date of review: August 24, 2004
In short: Undoubtedly the best race I have ran for years, quirky, fantastic scenery, challenging route, greta family party, super fun run for the kids, first class organisation Date of review: August 24, 2004
