In short: Hard run on tough terrain In full: Ok, so I know the info said it would be undulating and on trails, but I think it might be an idea to make the warning a bit more specific - i.e. very hilly and almost cross country in places. I was ok, but my partner prefers road running so absolutely hated it! Full marks to the marshalls for encouragement and good organisation. Date of review: August 13, 2013
In short: Great for those who like hilly off-road routes. In full: It certainly has a mud-run potential if it rains. Great fo trying some sandy trails and fabulous donwhill mad dashes. Date of review: August 18, 2012
In short: What hurts more - hills or nettles ? In full: Splendid race. Really is "multi terrain". Some very taxing hills especially one made of sand. You need to leave any pb hopes at home and race against the other competitors instead. Could do with someone trimming the nettles as some of the pathways were very tight and nettles hurt even when racing.
A summer Saturday evening is a great time for a race too. Date of review: August 17, 2012
In short: First time at the stumble, wont be my last In full: did the stumble as part of my trainging for HM in October. Challenging off road course, with some killer hills, a particular sand one and mud one spring to mind, but fun nonetheless. well marshalled and oragnised, although having to have a t shirt that was 2 sizes too big for me as my size was reserved for all the ladies was disappointing at the end. but will be back to do this again and also try the stagger...

In short: Superb race In full: This is the third year I have ran the Stumble, and it gets better (and tougher) each year. This is a well marshalled and organised race and the the kids loved the fun run, I'm not so sure my wife enjoyed trying to keep up with them though. Date of review: August 12, 2012
In short: Some challenging inclines, very welcoming race and great marshals. In full: A welcoming race starting in a lovely park and taking in some very varied and challenging terrain. Everyone was encouraging and the atmosphere at the finish line was great. I'd definitely do this course again. Date of review: August 12, 2012
In short: Challenging race in lovely surroundings. In full: Definitely a multi-terrainrace. In fact its hard to think of a surface thats not covered. Billed as 10K ish but it is a challneging course with plenty of short hills so not PB material. Still, a great way to spend a summer's saturday evening and justify a few pints afters!
