In short: Fantastic, as ever from this series In full: Brilliant organisation, friendly marshalls, good food afterwards, amazing course - tough but rewarding and scenic. The whole series has been a credit to the organisers and I'm just posting my entry for next year! A great introduction to trail running and so welcoming to all, fast and slow alike. Thank you.

In short: Well-organised, very friendly and a fast course In full: A great day out - lovely course, friendly and encouraging marshalls, good atmosphere, something for the spectators. Amazing local support with drinks and sponges and lots of encouragement. Plenty of water stations, more sponges and showers - very welcome even in the rain.

In short: Fantastic! Challenging but well worth it. In full: Excellent organisation, very friendly marshalls, great atmosphere, amazing scenery including a fortified farmstead and ever-changing views of the Lakes. This is an amazing route, challenging and steep in places (most places) but the sense of satisfaction on completion is second to none. Well done Graham and Claire. Date of review: June 4, 2006
In short: Great challenging race. In full: Bit surprised at the fast start but managed to maintain my postition at the back quite well. First trail race, will be doing more. Really enjoyable weekend, great atmosphere, loads of stuff going on, fantastic food in the little wagon. Well done Graham and Claire.
Hills were hilly but isn't that why we entered in the first place? Roll on Garburn... Date of review: April 24, 2006
In short: Great day out in a wonderful setting In full: Very strange distance markers - only 1, 2, 5 and 6 miles marked rather than kms. Undulating but runnable course. Friendly marshalls even in the driving snow. Great day out. Date of review: December 18, 2005
