In short: The best marathon to ever be a part of In full: People have mentioned the buses, well I was sat next to the toilet on one of those buses...rancid! I was sad to leave Inverness, the event is so well organised, such a great course, such great support from organisers and local villages, great value for money. This is the second time I have ran this event and I will be back for more, I have absolutely no gripes, even had a bar at the end, a pint of sheep shaggers went down a treat....brilliant,brilliant,brilliant!!

In short: Seemed tougher than last year, those ploughed fields! In full: Great race well organised. There was a bit of tape missing in the last field, didn't know whether I was on the right track. Liked the idea of the field with the horses, which were instructed to stampede the runners. This gave it a krypton factor feel.. Excellent race good value for money.
Please tie the horses up next year!! Date of review: January 11, 2009
In short: One of my favourite races on the calendar In full: Brilliant trail race...and it is a trail race NOT Xcountry. Organisation seamless.,scenery..can't imagine better. Well done to all at Maltby RC for continuing to provide such a great event.
In short: Great race, well organised In full: Well done on a great race, goody bag and race well worth the £7 entry fee, finish on the grass was tough, added an extra challenge. Only one point for improvement...results should be more accessible and quickly prepared. A website these days is not too big an ask :-) Date of review: July 16, 2008
In short: Excellent Well Organised Race In full: Very well organised event in a magnificent part of the country. Will be back netx year. Only teeny gripe was the hidden finish line, I saw one or two people stop as they entered the village hall grounds, and the finish was actually round the back of the building Date of review: March 31, 2008
In short: Great challenging half marathon In full: A good half marathon. Yes, there was the start/finish cock up, but credit to the organisers for relocating the finish speedily enough. For those without GPS they must have wondered what was going off with the mile markers! Liked the hot drink at the finish, we were even allowed hot chocolate! Date of review: February 24, 2008
In short: Relatively flat course, however PB potential not helped by the heat In full: Well organised event, excellent marshalling. Preferred last year with the dull weather. This year, suffered in the heat. Good overall event Date of review: August 12, 2007
