In short: Well organised trail event. In full: Well organised - lot of arrows but one or two places were not clear - marshalls on the course were great - very helpful - great full breakfast at the finish. Highly recommended to anyone who likes trails events and does not mind a bit of mud !
Facilities at start ok - except "gents" really need urinals - long long long queues to use the 2 cubicles.
In short: Surprised at the poor organisation - a mess except for the Elite front end that were well looked after - for the rest of us they could not even tell us how many laps we had done ! Date of review: February 4, 2006
In short: We should all demand a refund - as we did not receive what we had paid for ! In full: Delayed start - people had trians/buses to catch after the event ? Another year with no water at early water stations ! Organisers had said that they wanted to double the numbers next year ! Date of review: June 21, 2005
In short: A Challenge - not a race - one to find the route - the other to finish In full: Organisers need some help from the runners. could not believe how long it took to get my number on the day. If the entry form says route will be marked - then IT HAS TO BE MARKED - whether or not a map is handed out. If the event is to grow - just needs a few tweaks - in any case a great challenge !
In short: Undulating 2 lap course - lonely second half ! In full: Distance between some of the mile markers were way out. Drinks could have been a problem if it had been hot. The 4-30 time limit was tight for a charity event ? Date of review: April 15, 2005
In short: LDWA event - made runners very welcome In full: A really good event - hills/canals/fields/paths through woods and great refreshments at terrific value. highly recommended Date of review: April 15, 2005
In short: Well organised, brave marshals in the bitterly cold wind. In full: Bit lonely, runners well spread out over the almost 5 mile loop, best entertainment was watching the yachts capsize and the herd of Alpacas ! It was survival this year into the bitterly cold wind one side of the reservoir ! Date of review: March 1, 2005
