In short: Watch your step.... In full: This was my sencond multi-terrain race after the Marshfield Mudlark last week - and this was even more enjoyable.
I was suprised by the road content - I'd say this was 60% cross country, 40% roads and trails. However, trail trainers are recommended as the fields we went through were uneven under foot, very much so in fact.
The first half of the race is mostly uphill, so make sure you pace yourself! Heavy drizzle broke out at the start of the race, but this worked out well as it kept me cool.
This was a small scale local race, but very friendly. Coffee, tea, bacon and sausage rolls were on offer at the end - a nice touch.
Not exactly a beginners race - tough going at the start - but a great workout in lovely surroundings. The organisers did a great job, and we all got a medal at the end, unlike the Marshfield Mudlark.
I'll definitely be back next year! 8) Date of review: October 14, 2009
In short: My first race and made me want to do more. In full: Very friendly and well-organised. Great community feel. Great scenery. A bit hilly but you get used to that living round here and the finish is a little lower than the start. Date of review: June 8, 2008
In short: Good to see the kids involved In full: Nice to see so many runners on show on a day that clashed with the FLM. Good race, my best ever time on the course by 2 minutes Date of review: April 13, 2008
