In short: This run is in my top five races In full: Very friendly and welcoming bunch of people; good and varied track surface; well organised and good support from marshalls including advice on the conditions.

In short: Fantastic gem of a race In full: Brilliant race, everything from the route, encouraging marshalls along the way, medal & goody bag, pint of Guinness in the clubhouse after, and army cadets pushing our car through the snow - all made up for 'that hill' at mile 9. Will be back next year. Date of review: February 13, 2012
In short: Definitely a 'challenge' In full: Had my doubts about doing this one the day before, but so glad I changed my mind. Despite the snow and cold it was excellent. Definitely a 'challenge'. A massive thank you to the marshalls - you must have been so cold. Nicely chilled water at the water station! Very disappointed to see the amount of discarded bottles - come on people have a bit of respect - at least carry it until you can hand it to the next marshall. The hill. What can I say. What sadistic b****** put that in? Fun watching everyone struggle in front - but if you'd gone slightly to the left or right there was far more grip. All in all great fun. Many thanks.

In short: Wonderful In full: Forget flowers and chocolates - this is the very best way to celebrate Valentine's Day. Fabulous course ; plenty of hills and the mud on the Eiger near the end nearly finished me off. Big thanks to the wonderful marshalls - hope you've all thawed out. Last but not least the best pint of Guinness you will find in this country. An absolute must!
In full: A special thank you to sue Bathgate who stayed with me all the way around, she was very good company, espically with my 'Terets' :-)) up the last hill, defo will be back. Thanks again sue. Anita x Date of review: February 12, 2012
