In short: Brilliant - as always! In full: Brackla Harriers can again award themselves a huge collective pat on the back. I've been doing this race for years now and it never fails to really hit the spot. The sand dunes are a real torture, but you don't concern yourself about timing on this race, just get on and enjoy the fantastic route and spectacular scenery (sewage works excluded!). I especially like how they don't get bogged down trivia such as "Free T shirt". If you really want a souvenir T shirt, you can buy a really nice one with the names of all pre-entries on the back. The souvenir slate coaster was a nice touch -very Welsh! Looking forward to next year. Date of review: December 20, 2007
In short: If you only ever do one race, do this one, it was my first in Dec 2005 and Sunday was my Hat-Trick In full: Don't change anything and personally I think the more who turn up the better Date of review: December 18, 2007

In short: Fabulous race; couldn't be any better :) In full: This event is faultless - utter madness wrapped up in ribbons! Even running through a sewage works cannot put a dampener on this event. It has it all; massive sand dune for pointless exertion, bit of tarmac for speed merchants (if they have any energy after the dune!), nice moor for fell running and freezing rivers for barmpots - brilliant:))
On top of that, you get a pudding for finishing:)) Date of review: December 18, 2007
In short: A 'must do' race that everyone should do at least once. In full: Very professionally organised - everything went smoothly. It starts on time, which is one of the most important things in my opinion. The marshalls do a fantastic job - standing out there exposed to the elements for hours, yet all of them were cheerful and encouraging to the last.
The water feature near the end is the cherry on the cake!!!!!!
