In short: Extraordinary event - nothing to compare this one too! In full: The ratings you have to give don't reflect the race but I've given it a go!?!
PB potential - well I got a 69 mile PB, so should that be a 5 really? Didn't quite work with the "pure speed" explanation of PB potential!!
Beginner Friendliness? - for an Ultra beginner (like me!) this was perfect so therefore 5? Again not really one for non runners (as per explanation for a 5!)
To summarise - awesome start to finish. Will never forget this one! The organisation was impeccable, from marshals to arrows pointing the way, but most of all the runners around me. There was a real sense of camaraderie amongst those running around me (around 11 hr pace - Challenger), and the whole "toughing it out together" atmosphere made this the best event I have ever done!
In for next year - yes it's expensive, but there's a lot to organise and a lot of miles to cover - obviously I would like it cheaper if possible but as far as I'm concerned - £200 well spent! Date of review: June 27, 2012
In short: A fantastic multi terrain run........starts on a field, then onto trails, then onto concrete before going back to the field! The hill at the end hurts but all adds to the fun.....fab race! Date of review: September 24, 2007
