In short: Great friendly race In full: This was my first run of the mutliterrain challenge. The day was clear and the views were great across the severn. Based at the riding centre there are nice horses around.
The course is a real mixture of trails, woodland and fields. The going was soft and you had to walk through some sections of mud. There was the occasional squeal from a competitor as they thought they had a lost a shoe. But a great sense of togetherness to get through the more difficult sections. Not too many hills, which were compensated by a fair amount of flat.
Good organisation. Nice touch of having a hose down for runners and dogs in the stables at the end. The donation based massage was also well received for achey legs. Date of review: January 21, 2014
In short: Scenic, friendly, off-road, challenging 10K trot In full: A lovely course, winding its way across land owned by the local disabled riding school. A very open feel to the race - no bottlenecks. Mostly grass with 2 small stretches of quiet road (no cars in sight on the day). Friendly marshalls and a great start and finish venue where you could warm up in the indoor riding area + soup and rolls for Â£1 at the end. Date of review: February 12, 2010
