Just spotted this one looks interesting - close to home too

Any comments would be gratefully received - be nice to have a Sunday off too!!

Tough little run this - more like cross country than road running.

It's a muddy one but good fun. A bargain entry fee too. Get yourself entered

Did this last year - it was bl**dy hard work but an excellent change to road running - well worth giving it a go, I would very much recommend it!

That's me decided then. I am definitely going to do this one. Will be nice to do something different

Well done John Just don't forget to take a clean pair of shoes for afterwards!

Clean pair and set of everything basically required...

So how does this compare with Parbold Hill Race

Not done Parbold Hill race so can't comment - the "Hill" bit keeps putting me off - mind you, Standish Trail race has its moments vertical wise...

Have ran this today as my 1st trail race. A tough, really muddy in places course. Previous posters were right about the hills as well. A good day that was really well marshalled and a bargain £4 to enter.

Have to agree Steven, a tough event this was. That 400m (approx) of mud was a killer, really took it out of me, and doing it twice.....! Was a bit gutted with my time at first, but on reflection happy with the effort. Shall know what's to come next year.

I'm on my way back from injury so was using todays race as a training run. You're right Pete that mud was a killer the 1st time round and knowing you had to do it again. Would definately do it again though.

Was that the mud as you came up out of the woodland section uphill through a field?  Killer indeed - did the race last year and it felt like as much effort as you put in, you just weren't going anywhere - like running on the spot but through treacle...
