In short: First 5K road, next 5K+ trail = 10K ++ undulating In full: Well orgainised run, not really trail race but combination of approx 5K road and then 5K + of trail/marshy field. My garmin said 6.52 miles at end. Very undulating course with real mix of surfaces - fun to do and a good blow-out course!
In short: Great race loved the mud! In full: Well organised, lovely hills nothing too challenging, mud was great and the quick bits in the fields. Lots of locals cheering bit too much road for my liking though. Date of review: August 13, 2011
In short: Good fun In full: Not a race to take too seriously, even if most of the entrants are club runners. 10.66k of hills, mud and some tricky single track - Great!Very friendly marshalls Date of review: August 19, 2010
In short: Pretty, friendly, fun In full: I really enjoyed this race, which I ran for the first time this year - thanks to all the marshals and organisers for making it such fun. The race passes through picture postcard villages and along some muddy tracks, for nearer 11k than 10, I think! Plenty of uphill stretches but none of them goes on for too long. I loved the downhill through the fields towards the river bank, and even the extra muddy path along the bank (despite falling over into a clump of stinging nettles). Date of review: August 14, 2009
In short: Beautiful scenery, later half muddy and fun In full: Some long haul hills, the road run misleads you into a false sense of security! later half sticky and deep at points and the near river run on the end keeps you focused... Date of review: August 12, 2009
In short: I really enjoyed my first race in 6 years! I'm hurting but still feeling very satisfied. Great mix of terrain, some amazing scenery and plenty of support and cheering on the way. Thanks to the organisers and marshalls, great job. Date of review: August 8, 2009

In short: Good multi terrain race In full: The rain lashed down for the whole race making major puddles on the roads and mud mud mud on the off road bits. Brilliant fun!! Thanks to the lots of well organised and friendly marshalls who braved the elements. I was glad i was running not marshalling. Nice route, some hills but nice and varied with on road and off road tracks,fields, woods etc. Nice hat as a momento - thanks Date of review: August 10, 2008
