In short: What a gem of a race! In full: The course is hard (have someone mentioned hills?), but views are cracking. The atmosphere is simply amazing (it really feels like a family event). Do I really have to mention hot showers and cooked breakfast? Absolutely brilliant. I'm so coming back next year! Date of review: October 29, 2014
In short: Tough race but great fun In full: I ran the Greensand half marathon. Was a great race lovely scenery and hills! Dr Rob deserves praise for putting on such a great event. Where else could you get a medal, t-shirt, cooked breakfast and a carrot! I will be back next year! Date of review: October 29, 2014
In short: A cracking race! In full: I should confess from the off that I am a big fan of Trionium events. I love the deliberately challenging courses, the cracking scenery and the friendliness of the runners who take part. And this year didn't disappoint: another well organised race, the best facilities I've come across(pristine showers, a full English in the canteen afterwards...)plus lots of support on the out and back course (no congestion as far as I am aware, just lots of high fives and whooping to each other!) I'd sum up the ethos of all of the Trionium events I've been to as old school running at its best - always tough but very rewarding. Date of review: October 29, 2014
In short: Great event .. In full: Great location very mixed terrain. Up to Leith hill tower you have relatively straightish track on okayish ground. After the tower it turns into a twisting turning up down and all over the place broken up trail, really tested my knees. You have to be alert all the time can't switch off. On a number of occasions I uttered the magic," words never again.." Great support from marshals and other runners gets you round this course. Needless to say I will be back next year.
In short: Tough In full: I really like this race, but if only I was quicker! Its a challenge to meet the cut off so the rest of it is always a slog. But even in bad weather (not in 2014 for a change!) its still a very good run. Date of review: October 28, 2014
