In short: Knack'd out on the Knacker Cracker In full: A brilliant race. So different ot last years frosty but solid course - this year wet, muddy and slippy. As has been said before - The Best Race Finish Ever. Excellent value for money: t-shirt, mug, medal, cheese roll, carrot, soup, raffle - everyone seemed to "win"!! See you next year!

In short: Brilliant!! In full: Couldn't fault it. Everything top notch - organisation, buses up to start, course (tough, but it is the Highlands!), atmosphere, fellow competitors, support, goodies. And Inverness is great.
See you next year. Date of review: October 6, 2010
In short: Thanks Bristol! In full: A great race. And we beat the chicken! He overtook us at 6 miles and my wife said "Give me an energy gel, I'm not being overtaken by a chicken". We caught up with him just before the finish line. But well done that man. And the Miltary boys with the back packs.
Course was nice, different aspects of Bristol were shown and I had a good look around.
Didn't lose my chip - tied it to laces after I noticed paper had dissolved in rain in start pen! Will use twist-ties in future. Nice shiny medal, good t-shirt, goodie bag OK. At least it has something in it, unlike Royal Parks! And you could be sneaky and get lots of lucozade stuff. Including lip balm. Technical t-shirts were for sale, but it's be nicer to get one in the pack.
We saved money by entering on 1st day.
See you again Brizzle! Date of review: September 6, 2010
In short: Got a PB... In full: So well please. Nice race. With a couple of inclines/hills. Water station very well positioned. And run downhill was superb. Marshalls were excellent especially controlling traffic (one road was missing a marshall and it could've done with one... going up the hill!). Date of review: August 9, 2010
In short: Didn't expect the hill!! In full: We were ready for the beach: soft and hard-ridged sand. But the hill up a shale track was a bit unexpected. Still, very good fun and excellent race. Date of review: August 4, 2010
In short: Brilliant Early Morning Race... In full: The wife & I (power) walked as she's got an injury, but what a great race. Lovely scenery, excellent echo in the Viaduct, Little bit of off road, couple of cracking hills and downhill for 2 miles at the end. And an 8.30 start, which means home for lunch. More races should try this. See you next year. Date of review: April 19, 2010
