In short: Good off road course but signs in general were lacking In full: Dissapointingly not up to the usual standard we have come to expect from St.Austell. No signs en route telling you were the event was. Once you found it, no signs tellig you where to park, where registration was, where the start was (for the fun run or main event). However the course itself was in a great setting with a good uphill finish. Date of review: May 17, 2009
In short: This is one of those races you have to do at some stage. In full: Great scenery, and well organised but why can runners simply not shut up on the start line so we can here any last minute instructions from the organiser.
In short: Great event apart from the usual chaotic start. In full: A remarkably fast course considering it is on Dartmoor. Great course, plenty of parking, toilets etc. But when is the start going to be sorted out. There should be guidance in the race info telling people to position themselves on thye start according to where they expect to finish. Filling the start line from the front causes too many slower runners to be be bunched near the front. Many of these were inexperienced and probably did not enjoy getting jostled/trampled on etc. It wasn't much fun for those of us being forced to run off the road to get past them. Apart from that it was otherwise a great event and I'll be back. Date of review: November 12, 2008
In short: Warm HQ, plenty of parking, excellant friendly (and frozen) marshalls, an event I'd recommend In full: Brilliant event. Dartmoor at it's best. I wonder if the marshalls have been de-frosted yet? Date of review: November 1, 2008
In short: What a great event In full: Definately worth the effort if in the London area on the last friday of a month. The concept of racing the same course regularly throughout the year is a great idea for gaging how you are doing. Date of review: November 1, 2008
In short: Deceptively hard course. Each to find, plenty of parking. In full: On paper it looks flat but it is deceptively hard, or maybe I was enjoying the views to much. Date of review: October 5, 2008
In short: OK event but rather expensive In full: I like the hills, water and sponge stations and marshalling were spot on. Cornwall is wonderfully scenic but we were stuck in back lanes where you couldn't see much in front of you. The entry fee is rather steep. Numbers have fallen for the past two years for this event (unlike all other events in Cornwall), the course and entry fee are likely to be to blame. Hopefully Truro RC will respond favourably before the numbers drop too much. Date of review: September 22, 2008
In short: Great event. Brilliant organisation throughout. A big thank you to all involved. In full: Glorious scenary, hard running but then it's Dartmoor - what more do you expect. Date of review: July 13, 2008
