In short: Best run this year, so much fun. In full: So much fun, beat the train, and knackered my trail shoes. Really good organisation (although the £4 parking was a bit of a cheek, but I suppose it goes to the good causes the Rotary Club Support). Rain seemed to add to the atmosphere, nice muddy bit in the middle. Date of review: August 27, 2011
In short: Brilliant loved it In full: I love Race the train. It was really really wet and very very muddy, but it's such a laugh the t-shirt was fab, the running vest is brilliant will be wearing it with pride next weekend while doing the wye valley half. A huge thank you to all the marshalls you were all fantastic we couldn't do it with out you. Date of review: August 27, 2011
In short: Muddy In full: Massive amount of mud!! trail shoes didnt help much! marshalls were wonderful, plentiful water stations, and camaraderie of runners was amazing. Finished with a smile on my face!
Not one for PB's!! ... section about mile 7/8 where it's single file and very slow going. Slower runners need to stop to let others pass if they are going to walk.
In short: fantastic event In full: this is a superb race a tough challenge of 14 miles but so rewarding to complete. many thanks to the organisers, and in the words of arnie i'll be back Date of review: August 24, 2011
In short: Takes you to new depths of physical challenges! In full: If you only do this race once, memories will lasts you a lifetime! Definately one of races you should do in your life - Tick for life! Great support, both on and off Train, excellent marshalling and whole town comes out to support you! Skippy's Fish and Chips in town queue down the road tasty! I did Quarry Challenge, tough uphill 700 metres climb, muddy, wet, rocks, streams,hearing Train gives you goosebumps! Though I beat the Train, they need to hold it up at Dolleach(spell checker) to give average runner chance to beat it in 2012. Count me in for Rotary challenge in 2012! Twyn we love you!
