In short: varied, scenic & challenging course In full: Truly a multi-terrain race with road, firm bridleways & slippy mud. Some tough hills as you make your through the very scenic course. Good value & a nice tech t-shirt at the end.
Only gripe would be the presentations took an age to get started Date of review: October 15, 2012
In short: Well organised race, with pb potential In full: There was a but of a queue upon arrival for timing chips, but this actually moved fairly quickly and was no problem, had no other problems with baggage or loos. Little bit of a walk to the school from the drop off point but hardly a cause for complaint. I thought the whole event was well organised.
The course itself was mildly challenging, a few inclines but nothing too tough, and of course a few quicker downhill sections to compensate, especially from 9 to 10 miles.
I took over a minute off my PB so it is possible to achieve some good times. Date of review: December 12, 2011
In short: Fast but interesting course In full: Crowded start heading through a gate, but once out on the road this a fun race. The first 5k is flat followed by a couple of inclines that are challenging but far from terrifying. Followed by a nice steady descent back towards the finish. Lots of marshalls all the way round, probably the most i have seen in a race. Date of review: August 15, 2011
In short: Challenging course, very well organised In full: Good course heading out of watford and into the countryside. Some tough hills but nothing really nasty. Cannot fault the organisation & supportive marshalls Date of review: February 10, 2011
