In short: Wonderful race from start to finish... In full: What can I say, this race was brilliant. Everything was well organised and made for a very special run. The course is pretty tough in parts but makes for a very enjoyable morning! The bottle of local beer in the goody bag was a really nice touch and something different.
Will definately be doing this one again next year. Date of review: August 2, 2010

In short: Very good and challenging race with great setting In full: I only have one issue with the race. What happened to the toilet facilities? In previous years, we have had access to the school and plentiful facilities. This year 2 cubicles! This really let the race down.
Other than that the race was a great trail challenge with only the gate you had to climb over a bit extreme. Date of review: August 11, 2009
In short: Great organisation, lovely scenery and varied terrain In full: Lovely countryside with marshalls aplenty to guide us along canal towpaths, along cobbles, over stiles, across fields, up a steep packhorse trail, as well as road sections. In the first half of the race there was some conflict with other path users - walkers, cyclists and horses - which together with queuing to go over stiles (for those in the middle of the pack) means a rather slow course, but much more enjoyable than a flat road race.
