In short: Really very, very good. Well done Striders. In full: Superbly organized race in a beautiful piece of English countryside. Sincere thanks to a set of very brave marshalls out in those conditions. Date of review: November 5, 2012
In short: peculiar In full: The Surrey Champs so lots of fast boys / girls there so I expected a lot more. Very odd start line - a piece of blue carpet on a patch of grass, nothing more. No announcements, signs, directions, arrows, nothing. Couldn't see any km markers in the early part of the race. Those later in the race were a little random. Horrible hairpin bend *2. Odd finish on the funny bit of grass again. Just no atmosphere. Peculiar, all very peculiar. Could be just so much better. Date of review: June 24, 2012
In short: The normal super Yateley experience was spoied a little last night In full: The Yateley organizers do so much so well that it's a surprise when something goes wrong. So, what happened with the car parking last night? It took us well over 30 mins to get off that field. I also found 2 very sleepy marshalls on the course. I honestly didn't know where to go and to be ignored even when I was shouting at them was very annoying (last roundabout the worst).
Thanks for the extra water station and the otherwise super-slick organization. Everyone should use this results service, why don't they? Date of review: August 4, 2011
In short: Lovely route, good organization, thanks In full: Well organized: buses good, plenty of drinks stations, only one dodgy mashall (@ M'head bridge, just tell us where to go!). BUT...what was with the baggage? Just leave some labels hanging around and let us throw the bags in a van....
Nice work, enjoyed it. Date of review: July 24, 2011
In short: Great 1st time for this event that has an exciting future In full: Nothing at all for anyone to moan about, there were even loads of toilets! Well done to the organisers on an excellent first running of this event over a fast and scenic course. See you next time. Date of review: October 3, 2010
In short: Terrific! An awesome adventure race with all the niceties of a big road race In full: Wow! This is a challenging adventure race in amazing surroundings with all the soft touches that even the best road races so often get wrong: great transit, goody bag, tshirt, bottled water, comedy marshalls, efficient start, plenty of toilets. My wife did the walk and has similar comments. My tip: don't try and run across the river, save your energy and our quads with a gentle wade!! A serioius well done to the organizers.
