In short: Close to top marks from me In full: Marshalls and other race helpers were great. Goodie bags were most generous I've known considering the inclusion of LS-top as well. Location was lovely and the course was challenging but rewarding.
Only thing I can mark down on is difficulty in getting into car park causing a traffic jam and last minute arrival for many. I suggest maybe state in bold writing on form "Set off early". Disregarding this minor gripe it was, as others have already said, one of the best races in Yorkshire. Date of review: November 26, 2007

In short: tough, hilly, enjoyable, satisfying In full: 2nd time ive done this and felt pleased with myself having done it. tough hills excellent CV work, excellent goody bag. didnt like the trail at the end though Date of review: November 15, 2007
In short: HILLS , a very good challenge In full: Even though i was unprepared this year , i look forward to running a truely challenging course next year. It makes a nice change to run a route which makes the blood pump a little harder and muscles to ache that little more the next day definitley one to recomend. Date of review: November 12, 2007
In short: Excellent race, still one of the best In full: This race had everything from good organisation to glorious weather to scenic course, hills, friendly marshalls and drink station workers, and a goody bag and T-shirt that must have exceeded the entrance fee. Can someone explain to me how it doesn't score 100% for value everytime?
In short: So many hills but a great sense of achievement afterwards In full: Fantastic scenery and good atmosphere but OH BOY there were some hills. Felt like I was either running up or down a hill the whole time - not one for PB's!
FANTASTIC goody bag with enough chocolate to keep me going for weeks.
I'll be back next year for more punishment! Date of review: November 7, 2007
In short: Excellent race - a must again for next year. In full: Everything about this race was brilliant this year. Nice to see a big improvement at the start to let the bus go past before getting all the runners onto the road just before the start of the race. Found it tough going but challenging and took over 4 minutes off my time last year. If I had known my bag of goodies at the end was as good as it was I would have pushed on a bit harder!!!! Thanks to the marshalls and the cheerful girls at 7-8 miles who generally got all the water back in their faces, or was that just me - sorry it slipped out of my hand!!!
