In short: great race that needs slight improvement In full: Like some others i had a long journey and the post code on the instructions never got me to the start after a short panic and drive around i managed to find it but signage once entering south Harting would have been a great help.
Shortly after the start we had to come to a standstill due to some scared horses on the path the owner did not seem happy that runners had taken over ! i wonder if the locals were told about the course route ? maybe it would help to put up notices prior to the race next year...
With that out the way i really enjoyed the race, it was well organised, had fantastic marshals, fantastic course, great mix of friendly runners, lovely medal.
Will be back again next year. Date of review: August 4, 2013
In short: fantastic race In full: The hills of hell but what a amazing race, the course is hilly and a tough trail but at the same time enjoyable. stunning course, great mix of friendly runners, very well organised and VERY well marshalled and signed course. If the legs recover i will be back next year :) Date of review: July 28, 2013
In short: hot as hell but loved it In full: Phew what a scorcher, but what a lovely course even if it seems like the hill climbs never end. A very well organised race, lovely technical t-shirt , the only downside for me was the cost of on the day entry as i have injury problems i have resisted entering races in advance and the cost was a bit steep. That said i will be back gain next year. Date of review: July 15, 2013
In short: lovely course really enjoyed it In full: This would be a tough slog on a normal day but with scorching heat it made it so much harder ! but the course is lovely, marshalls and organisation was great, finishers medal was fantastic. Date of review: July 15, 2013
In short: lovely course if you like hill In full: Ive missed this race for a couple of years and forgot just how tough the hills are, having said that it is a fantastic course with stunning scenery. As always very well organised well done to all those involved and the brave marshalls out there on a chilly day. Date of review: June 11, 2013

In short: better but improvements still needed In full: although i said i would not do this race again due it being poorly organised the last few years it fitted perfectly with my marathon training this year. lovely course with a great crowd and a day by the sea, yes improvements have been made i got my bag straight away and the finish with 2 helpers to each section last year i waited 15 mins and jumped over the barrier to get my bag in the end. the start does need re-thinking the baggage is at the end of the drive so runners and watchers who have dropped their bags off have to walk back and fight the runners trying to get to the baggage area, maybe a one way in one way out system is needed ??? might be back next year.

In short: not what i expected ! In full: Being no stranger to these type of races i had been looking forward to this for some time but despite what you see on the official race video it never lived up to expectation, parking was poor, course was ok, not your normal race atmosphere seemed to be more bodybuilders than runners. general organisation was poor but medal and t-shirt were very good but at a price. I would like to say a big thank you to the kind lady doctor who helped me after my fall whilst i waited for the medic to arrive, being in so much pain i dont remember saying thank you !
