In short: Good race. Splendid location. makes a change from suburban roads. In full: Got to cross the hallowed Top Gear finish line, twice! Very different race, but I thought it was great, and those elite boys don't half go off at the bang.
And FINALLY, a start tone I could hear (being a bit mutton). Date of review: March 5, 2006
In short: Well, I had to review it of all people!...... In full: I had forgotten about the other mean little uppies and downies deep in the bowels of the woods. Also, I was sure it was more than 10K. An extra K would seem about right, and would partly explain my tardy time.
Excellent mornings entertainment, plenty of parking, Toby seemed to manage a cheery OK Yah! to everyone and a massive vote of thanks to the marshalls for a job well done.
Well done to the girl who cut her hand in a fall but still finished, unlucky to Deadlegs who blew his achilles about 3 K in and it's amazing how many new rude words you hear coming up Marthas back passage!
In short: A race that makes you dig deep within yourself for motivation. In full: Organisers taken note of last time and provided water as well. Course directions improved this time round. Not cheap at a tenner, some very good runners and parking adjacent to the race, for everyone. Excellent encouragement from marshalls and competitors alike.
If the average run bores you, come a burn a little rubber here instead and set your quads and everything else on fire just like Johnny Storm. Ouch. Date of review: December 17, 2005
In short: A very well worthwhile all rounder In full: Excellent parking close to the track. Rec for the kids, Big park to play in. No queue for the toilets!! And half a dozen man traps!! Indoors!! With paper!!
Nice start and finish on the track, well marshalled although some of the trucks were a bit close.
2 water stations at 3.5K and 7K. Why doesn't everyone do this?
Knocked nearly a minute and a half off my PB.
Back next year? Definitely. Date of review: May 22, 2005
