In short: One of the Uks best trail runs - the Kent Weald is very picturesque In full: Wonderful organization , marshals very friendly and supportive and knowledgable telling runners they had competed 6 miles 13.1 miles and how far the next check point would be , really great to get accurate information especially when fatigue kicks in , food and drink and energy items were perfect !

In short: Murder but 'fun' In full: For the first 3 and a half hours I was thinking 'Ooooh lovely' but then the hills got longer and harder (as they do after that time). The scenery stayed stunningly beautiful and the atmosphere was really friendly (thank you to the nice gents who picked me up after my 'superman' impression). The marshals were all lovely and it was nice chatting to them at the waterstations. Great cake (and TLC) at the 'Loveshack' (wasn't called that but on the lines of), REALLY well signposted and silly comments that made you giggle along the way (or was it hysteria??). Camping= great idea. Loved it, might be ready to do it again in a year's time. Date of review: May 24, 2015
In short: Great community atmosphere In full: Lovely community charity atmosphere. Scenic run. Probably not a pb race due to 1km on sand but well worth doing. Ran out of goodie bags near the end. Date of review: May 24, 2015
In short: Another great race put on by TRAC In full: This is the third time ive done this one. Its something a bit different, on the sand which tests the legs, its wonderfully free just legging it along the sand. Marshals are great cheering all the runners. And this time we got a fabulous original medal - not just one of those generic ones with the runners on the front and a blue ribbon. Oh, and a stick of rock. Yes I thoroughly reccomend this. And its lovely for beginners. Take your packed of baby wipes for being runfresh and spend the day in Broadstairs for lunch. Tiptop. Date of review: May 24, 2015
In short: Tough but beautiful In full: Great race. Very difficult, some brutal hills but scenery makes up for it.
Irrespective of its difficulty, it was very friendly and the marshals were nice and loud. Very happy that. Managed to run the whole way and finished in 1.46. What ever your flat half is, I'd add about 10 minutes.
In short: Very special but very hard work In full: There was a killer hill, If it had been wet I don't know how we would have got up it. The reward was the magnificent view from Wenlock Edge, it was just a shame that we only had a short time up there before the descent to a very muddy section. However, the trails were more runnable than those I'm used to with fewer hazards. Carpets of bluebells, the scent of wild garlic and birdsong everywhere. The drink stations were very welcome and although there was little support as could be expected from an event like this, it was enthusiastic. Possibly the best medal ever!

In short: Really Great Race ???? In full: My first time ion the beach, but now I've done it, would definitely do it again! Hard going on the sand, trying to find the bits that aren't too soft, but a lovely run along the coast. Marshals and organisation were great and a fabulous medal. Would really recommend Date of review: May 23, 2015
In short: Loved it! Well organised and good atmosphere In full: Enjoyed this race from start to finish. Well organised, lots of lovely encouraging marshals around, especially at cross-over points where the 5 and 10k routes split and came back together. Plenty of water stations and even the tree roots that stuck out on the trials were sprayed yellow to make the more visible. Impressed and will definitely be doing this one again! Thank you!

In short: Enjoyable, fun and really pretty views. In full: Great race really enjoyed it. First year doing it, will defiantly enter next year. Finished with a medal and bacon sandwich perfect ending! Date of review: May 23, 2015
In short: Excellent race for seasoned or new runners alike In full: Good run, amazing atmosphere the only thing I would do is have more of the course run within Chester to make the most of the lovely city centre. Date of review: May 23, 2015
