In short: Beautiful and challenging coss country run In full: Enjoyed every second, from the sheep trying to join in on the first mile to the finish with free beer, juice, cake & fruit, fantastic! The scenery was beautiful, it took your mind off the pain of the many hills. Not a great deal of mud but enough for it to be fun! The marshalls were all great-thank you- esp the boy who both registered me before race, and was also shouting great words of encouragement at the drinks station just before 5 miles, really gave me a boost! I was smiling from start to finish, and will be back next year. Thanks! Date of review: September 12, 2010
In short: Beautiful race, killer hills at end In full: This race was really beautiful. Very hot day & the marshalls were fantastic, really encouraging and the cold sponges were a life saver. The three large hills at the end were really tough but worth it when you got to choose your free cake at the end! The organisation was very good, I will be back next year.

In short: Beautiful Scenery In full: Such a beautiful race, weather was perfect & the view from the top of the Downs is fantastic. Love all the hills & the downhill to finish, really challenging, will def do again next year. Only thing I would say is the price paid I would have liked a T-shirt or medal as momento and some energy drink on way round or free cake at end would have been a nice touch.

In short: Beautiful scenery In full: The scenery on this makes it absolutely stunning. Although the hills seemed to go on forever they were a great challenge & it made the views even more special, esp with the sun shining. Will definately do it again next year. Lots of water stations & there were biscuits & squash at the later stations, marshalls were all really friendly and supportive, thanks! Other runners were also friendly along the route as well.
Only critisism would be that the start was quite unclear, and the finish line didn't have a clock which seemed strange. But all in all a fantastic cross coutry run. Date of review: June 10, 2009
