In short: An OK race but not up there with the top tier In full: Nothing wrong with this race but it's not really special, it's too twisty to be a real PB course, doesn't have great facilities and it's a three lap race. Don't think I would do it again unless it was HRRL or if glorious sunshine was predicted and a picnic taken for afterwards Date of review: May 21, 2009
In short: A gem of a race In full: Another great Combe Gibbet Race. This is now the definitive off road race Point to point, stunning scenery, excellent organisation, some tough climbs, downhill finish, good facilities, home made cakes, I could go on but you get the picture - you don't? then join me in 2010.
In short: Ryde 10 - Nice Hilly Course In full: This review is on Ryde 10, don't know why it defaults to IOW Marathon. Anyway usually love this course but given that I was under the weather and that the weather was awful meat I had a dreadful day. Ho hum. PS Next year make sure we go up the right hill, the extra climb was not appreciated. Date of review: February 3, 2009
In short: Good way to start the New Year In full: This was my first Race Over the Glens and I enjoyed it, though as I was warned several times about the climbs I took the first few miles a little too easy, even though it is a long way from the valley to the top of the climb. Hope to be back next year. Date of review: January 6, 2009
