In short: Very well organised, enjoyable race In full: Well done to the organisers on an excellent race. They have clearly listened to previous advice/criticisms, and vastly improved the direction to the race signs (Mells can be a bit hard to find, even for locals...). The race was well signed and the marshalls were very encouraging. I must apologise here to the marshal at the end who asked me to keep moving to the end of the funnel. I was very tired and I don't think she took my attempt at humour in the manner in was intended. I organise race marshals myself for other events and I am always grateful for their help.
The only suggestion I can make to imporve this event is to price the cakes more sensibly! Honestly - make your lives easier and call it 50p per cake/cup of tea! No-one cares...
Great job - see you next year! Date of review: September 27, 2010
In short: Lovely race and really well organised. In full: Third year in a row I have run this one, and it was even better than before. The lovely weather helped. Great scenery, brilliant organisation, and I even won my first spot prize to go with my banana and medal. The whole thing was so enjoyable that I soon forgot the killer uphill bit and my shame at briefly walking part of it thus taking 13 secs longer than last year! Date of review: September 30, 2009
In short: Challenging run on a lovely, sunny September day. In full: Small, local run with two nasty steep hills, a horrible rutted, seemingly endless bridle way and some knee shattering downhills towards the end...just the way we love it!! Date of review: September 28, 2009
In short: good race, challenging course, and very good for prizes! In full: A nice day out at Mells, excellent refreshments for spectators, great weather, and a challenging course to boot! What more could you want? Well a very full prize list, including 3 team prizes. Great organization - spot on! Date of review: September 27, 2009
