In short: Germanic efficiently, extremely well organised In full: This event was the best organised race I have been to in the UK. Although the marathon feild was relatively small I would not be suprised if in a few years this race attracts many more runners.
At every turn in the course there was a marshall, not your standard arm waving lemming, but one who would actually tell you exactly where you needed to go what side of road etc. Also the young lads marshalling towards te end were extremely encouraging and put a smile on my face at the end of a long run.
I might not be back next year, but definately one I will recommend and definately consider for the future. Date of review: October 19, 2008
In short: I ran the 10k... In full: This was a good race and I only entered the 10k as a marathon warm-up. It dawned on me when I arrived the my race was going to be problematic with the 10k runner starting after the half-marathon runners.
Within the first mile of the race I had already caught the slower runners of the half-marathon (which annoyed me as I got held up and also the other runners that I was passing).
I would propose the 10k runners should start with the half marathon runners. Needless to say this was still a fast course and I managed a 36m run so I will not complain.
I felt the race was very well organised apart from the above and will be back for next years race. Date of review: October 14, 2008
In short: Great First Ultra In full: As my first ultra, I don't think I could ask for more, everyone at Ambition Events was massively friendly and so were the runners. Checkpoints had some good food, even cakes from Costa, yummy!!! Date of review: February 18, 2007
In short: Very welcoming In full: This race had a very nice atmosphere and great views some people seemed to complain about poor marking of route but I didn't think there were too many dramas and I was out on my own a lot of the time. Good XC half Date of review: September 18, 2006
In short: First race ever, it was awesome In full: Having never raced before I didn't really know what to expect, in fact didn't even realise it was not on the road, oh well, really enjoyed and will do it next year!!! Date of review: October 27, 2005
