In short: Great race, great organisation, great mud! In full: Well done Ilford a well organiesd event. First time here so can't compare previous but hilly and wet and mild = mud so not a PB course for me.
In short: Unlike last year... there was MUD... In full: ...which was nice! Race no.3 of 7 of the ELVIS series, nicely organised and excellent course, around lake and up Newman Hill... twice. Date of review: July 21, 2011
In short: Classic cross country, minus the mud! In full: A beautiful course, on well maintained paths entirely within hainault forest. One nasty uphill section which you have to do twice but unlike usual x-country races there is no congestion, no danger of getting lost and, being july, no mud.
Excellent organisation, especially post race with race HQ being a pub! Perfect "turn up and run" fun. Date of review: July 26, 2010
