In short: a great ultra race event In full: a big thank you to patrick and marshalls. great organisation, goodie bag, free showers and camping and a trophy instead of a medal which was a nice touch. a tough course to begin with then it gets easier. very scenic and well marked out. ran this as a my first solo event. managed 6 laps but had to pull out due to knee problems.

In short: A brilliantly organised, friendly intro to ultra running (if you so choose). A shorter version of the Thuder Run with a tougher course, and smaller more intimate atmosphere. Fantastic event. Date of review: March 21, 2011
In short: A great way to spend 12 hours In full: The race started at 6am and had 2.5km straight uphill!!! Coming over the finishing line Patrick (the organiser)was checking whether the marshalls/markers were all ok, this was a really good touch.
As the day progressed the sun came out which made for amazing views. The catering/massage was very good as was the support of other competitors.
And as a final touch of support from Patrick he was stood on the finish line congratulating competitors as they crossed the line.
Definately one to do again next year, thanks to all involved in organising/supporting/competing.
In short: Very tough course but fantastic atmosphere and scenery In full: A great endurance event on a hilly course, but the climbs are ofset by lots of fast downhill sections. Date of review: March 21, 2011
In short: What an event ! In full: Amazing location, scenery, course and organisation. We were looked after all day, superb facilities, catering, massages, showers & toilets all brilliant especially considering the amount of mud around. Goody bags (3 in total!) stuffed with goodies. Course in 10km loops, muddy with some nasty hills, but saw sun rise and set over Eastnor castle and had a great day running in the middle. Well worth a try, solo, pairs or as a team. Everyone organising the race were superb but special mention has to go to Patrick and his wife who spent the day talking to the runners making sure everything was OK. Thanks for a great race.
