In short: Nice friendly low key event In full: Pb for me..slight incline on 2 sections of each lap...but only took off 15-20 secs of overall time..PB potential as pacing is eay to judge after 1st lap..good mix of runners ranging from sub 40 to 1 hour 25ish Date of review: July 14, 2009
In short: Lifetime of memories in 3 hours In full: This blew me away..had years of watching on tv..but this year was my defining moment...really proud that my family could watch me at the finish!! Date of review: April 26, 2009
In short: back for more from the 20 last month..and Gade Valley...take a bow In full: Again thank you to the marshalls and organisers..you have outdone yourselfs and put a lot of "official races" to shame....well done and hope you have more next year!! Anyone preping for marathon should go for this series of training events!! Date of review: March 29, 2009
In short: Good organisation...bit confusing with mile markers.. In full: ...but with 4 x5mile laps to monitor understandable...be interested to know how the race stewards monitored anyone taking an early finsh!!! (ie coming off at 3 laps!!) Date of review: March 16, 2009
In short: The hills are alive.... In full: Great organisation with stewards and baggage staff tacking the conditions and demanding runners collecting baggage after the race...good location to start....
Course itself...real lesson in pacing and conserving energy to tackle the hills...got a PB (less crowds to get in the way, unlike larger london events).....
1hr 31 good build up for 17 mile later in the month!!! :() Date of review: February 1, 2009
