In short: very tough due to the heat but great race with great scenery In full: Had a lovely day out, a race through the country followed by a day at the zoo! The hills in the first half were tough and made so much harder because it was so hot! The people with hoses were greatly appreciated! Date of review: May 23, 2010
In short: lots of sticky mud In full: Great race got stuck in lots of mud followed by ice cold water!Stunning scenery and luckily the weather was better than predicted. Will be back again I'm sure. Date of review: February 28, 2010
In short: fast, flat course with some tricky boggy/ wet sections! In full: This was a nice run and organisation was good. Friendly marshals and a good supportive crowd. Could have done with the first drink station being a little later or having an extra one in the middle as there was quite a gap between them. A few more toilets would have been nice but i have seen longer queues in other races! Date of review: February 21, 2010
In short: lovely setting but needed better organisation at start and finish In full: This was a superb setting for a race, lovely scenery, great weather.The marshals were very encouraging around the course. On a downside the queues for the toilets and registration were the biggest I have seen in a race! By the time we got to the front my feet were numb!
There was also an abrupt stop as soon as you crossed the finish line while you had to queue (again) for number check, drink, chocky (much appreciated) and medal (good quality), I have low blood pressure and very nearly fainted in the queue at the end because of this! Date of review: January 3, 2010
In short: great seaside fun run In full: this was great fun and a great atmosphere lovely to see so many families taking part. Brilliant race for beginners and for a good cause, will be back again next year Date of review: December 13, 2009
In short: fun race wasn't too grim! In full: I enjoyed this race, compared to turbo x that I had done a few weeks before it was quite tame!The hardest part was keeping moving when you couldn't feel your feet. There was lots of cold water to get through! Not too much smelly mud though. I thought it ran very smoothly and had a great atmosphere. I managed to clock 8.7 miles on my Garmin though!

In short: mad mud and more mud! In full: Did I mention mud? Thanks to all the people who pulled me out of the chest deep mud, I'm only little and I wouldn't have made it home without you!!!
The race was really well organised, there was a great atmosphere, it was exceptionally tough due to the horrendous weather we have had recently! Overall a good race, being short I'm not sure I would want to do it again after so much rain but under nornal conditions it would have been great! Date of review: November 22, 2009
In short: fun race but poor organisation and expensive In full: Overall the race was fun but considering that there was no finishing momento other than a bottle of water it was a very expensive race! T-shirts available but at an extra cost! I wouldn't do it again, shame!I didn't see any markings directing you to the race from the road either so it was hard to find even once in the centre!
