In short: Excellent race but Now I remember why I don't race in summer In full: Brilliant event, great scenery, excellent marshals but too darn hot for me!! i was grateful for the extra water station and the hoses were wonderful! Date of review: July 28, 2008
In short: Some mistakes this year In full: As one of the organisers I do apologise for the mistakes in the results - it was a computer glitch as we were also running the county championship results on the same programme - we have rectified it now. As far as the toilet facilities are concerned even though we used Pfizers toilets last year there were still people who missed the start due to queues and because of the state the facilities were left in by the runners we were unable to access them this year. As a fellow runner I have found that there are NEVER enough toilets even at the London Marathon! There are few Race HQs that indeed do offer showers and unfortunately runners need to respect them so that they can continue to use them. We did state clearly in the race information that unfortunately showers would not be available this year. Date of review: March 2, 2008
In short: Absolutely brilliant!! In full: Our second year and more fun than last year - although those hills are horrid!! Loads of mud - still trying to scrub it off! Excellent fun and the coach load we brought will all be back next year Date of review: November 4, 2007
In short: Worth doing for the medals alone! In full: A great run - not easy but not too challenging with some of the friendliest marshals around. Nice Race HQ and we stayed afterwards for a picnic in the field. Date of review: September 9, 2007
In short: Most fun with my clothes on in ages! In full: I have never heard so many people laughing and shrieking. It is a fantastic event, the only slight quibble was that by the time my friend and I had finished they had run out of water which is a big no no but apart from that bloody marvellous Date of review: January 13, 2007
In short: Absolutely Fabulous!!! In full: Had an absolute ball - 8 of us stayed together for the whole day! Really enjoyable if a very tough race! PB for photos though - 209 this year - doesn't matter about the time.
