In short: Brilliant race, most awesome scenery, great mix of path and trail with a couple of killer hills chucked in for good measure. This is a MUST do race again for 2015 Date of review: November 19, 2014
In short: Good mix of towpath, hills and mud - all against a scenic Autumn backdrop In full: Fitted this one in after missing a run in late Sept because of illness. Really glad I did. The scenery made it a treat and I even enjoyed running up that hill - tho' I could have been fitter. On my list to do again. Date of review: November 18, 2014
In short: A race of 2 halfs - very enjoyable! In full: After 5 enjoyable quaint miles running down the Grand Union canal taking in the views of the locks, canal boats and friendly passers by, I was thinking to myself what a pleasant time I was having and whats more I was on for a PB!
Then out of nowhere came a very steep hill then I was hurtled into a forest where banks, puddles, tree branches, ups and downs awaited me. A crazy middle section is then followed by a challenging gaunt through cow fields, over bridges, through kissing gates back to the Grand Union. The legs really beginning to hurt now so thankfully the last couple of miles are back along the canal, a nasty little gladiator style travellator at the end was a little unwelcoming as we turned the corner for the finishing straight.
What a fun race. Date of review: November 18, 2014
