In short: A challenging but enjoyable run! In full: This was the first tme I had done this race and I have to congratulate the organisers on a fantastic job! Excellent scenary and superb marshelling.
Everyone was extremely welcoming and friendly and the water stops were well manned and stocked.
One small complaint was that the t-shirts were what ever size was left when you finished. Perhaps we could be asked our t shirt size prior to the race and they could be ordered by what sizes are needed? I'm very small but was given a medium t shirt which is a shame as I can't wear it whilst running and I would have loved to have done so!
Despite this I shall be back next year and would encourage anyone who likes a challenge to have a go. Date of review: June 28, 2011

Cracking route & scenery, very very hilly & they are tough, but this isn't about times & PB's, just about enjoying running, will defo be back next year and be more prepared, this has given me a taster as to what beachy head is gonna be like!
Marshals were all fantastic, cake was delicious, BBQ went down a treat and loved the medal & t shirt

In short: Superb organisation, wonderful marshals, lovely scenery can't wait until 2012! In full: The finesse of the organisation was exemplified by the fact that every tree root, on the 18 mile course, was highlighted so you'd have a chance to jump over it. My first time on this wonderful race but I can't wait until next year. The marshals were all encouraging and friendly, which made for a great atmosphere. Well done to all concerned with the organisation of this great race. Date of review: June 23, 2011
In short: 11/10!!! In full: You have to give this ago, a fantastic event. Nothing could be faulted, from the easy parking, decent toilets to the amazing number of marshalls. Water stations in the right places, with SIS gels & jelly b's. Not for the faint hearted, an 18 mile marathon through wonderfully scenic landscapes. Great medal, bright t-shirt & tasty cakes! You know you've been in a race when you finish. If you only run one race, make it this one! Date of review: June 21, 2011
