In short: "8 miles of outrageous XC running fun", just like it said on the flier! In full: Up hills, down hills, streams, bogs, rope swings, a kamikaze slide, more hills, one with ropes to help pull yourself up with, mud, a fantastic spectators area, a crawl net, some strange hay arrangement to clamber over, and the Votwo wall!
An excellent race both for spectators and us mad enough to take part.
In short: masochistic race In full: A super event; if you intend to enter you need to be aware that you will not encounter a tougher 8 mile race; the hills were aggresive, the obstacles were great fun to have a go at. The race can be viewed by spectators for virtually the whole 8 miles so a good event to take the family to (especially if the weather is as good as this year). One minor criticism was that the entry information stated veteran prizes but there weren't any on the day. Date of review: October 18, 2007
In short: True adventure race. In full: There were not a lot of signs to help you find the place, but it was worth finding. They really had managed to find every bog and the hills really were nearly verticle. Great fun. Date of review: October 17, 2007
In short: There could have been a few more signs up directing you to it, but ultimately this was an excellent race, mud, slides, rope swings, lots of hills and a lovely big wall to master at the end. Fabulous Date of review: October 16, 2007
In short: Excellent race, On the first lap you worried about the obstacles-bogs,rivers,slidess,swingss and climbing thingss. By the second lap you were just glad of the rest as they were the only bit without hills ! Very Friendly and very satisfying. Date of review: October 14, 2007
