In short: Just what my running mojo needed In full: Great race, from start to finish. Hard course but that's what's so awesome about the race. Along with a real bond between the competitors who all look out and encourage one another.
Superb medal, t-shirt and paperweight. Not to forget the full English breakfast afterward.
From the parking through to leaving the race venue, it was well organised.
A truly unique race. Date of review: March 7, 2011
In short: Weather didn't play the game, but great race otherwise. In full: I really felt for the organisers. Terrible muddy, wet and windy conditions but the areas they could control were great. Would have liked to have seen more signs pointing out the car parks but that's my only fault. Great marshalls and loads of them. Great crowd support considering the conditions. Thanks!

In short: Disorganised. Not worth the £20 entry... In full: For a race that had 4500 people running, there were 6 porta-loos at the start. Ridiculus! Only saw a mile marker at mile 4 and then it was pot luck spotting another one. First water station was an utter shambles. Marshals did an awesome job as did bag handlers, unless your number was 1000 - 1999, longest queue ever. One positive was the goodie bag. Date of review: February 18, 2007
In short: Lovely traffic free route but need attention to detail In full: Toilets ran out of toilet paper! This is such an easy thing to sort out and so many races fail to monitor the situation. Watering tables only had water. Thanks so much to the volunteers handing it out. Date of review: February 11, 2007
