In short: highly recomended........ In full: I have run this race many times and its always a great way to spend a sunday morning. Would always recomend this event,will run again in 2017..... Date of review: April 4, 2016
In short: Not ideal but......... In full: I had forseen the park & ride issues having run many races in the area,so i parked at hampton ct station cark park and walked to the start. The numbers of runners did seem to overwhelm the the organisation,i decided to start from the very back as it seemed to offer a chance of a clear run. The route is flat and is a pb race,given the problems some say they wont run it again,but the problem of numbers etc can be fixed. My result shows i had to overtake around 700 runners but i survived and will try again in 2017...
In short: Good post christmas race... In full: First time running the ten mile route,its a test but the climbs are not that steep and are followed by flat or down hill to the finish. Nice feel to the event & it was nice to see that the Marshals & finish line helpers were there for the last runners home as well as the first, try this one in 2016.......
In short: Not a long slog. In full: Ran the 7 mile race,quite hilly but downhill at the end so not a long slog. well organised,nice marshals , will run again in 2016...... Date of review: November 9, 2015
In short: You have to try it.... In full: The weather was wet & the route was a slog in places,but if you are a runner in this country this is quite usual. Thanks to the marshals,volenters, and locals who stood in the rain for hours. I enjoyed this event despite the weather,not easy but a good race & the medal one of the best i have ever seen,recomend this for 2016.. Date of review: August 31, 2015
In short: worth the long drive,you need to try it. In full: A challenging route,but a good event. Great marshals ,sunny weather,lots of water and sponges. Ryde hariers could not have made the rule about headphones clearer, and runners who ignored it were DQ, Date of review: August 21, 2015
In short: A great day out........... In full: have run this race every year since 2005 and it is always a great day out. The cool weather made it easier than previous years,the marshal's and the locals are always friendly . will do it again in 2016....... Date of review: June 14, 2015
