In short: Fabulous experience - loved the support and route In full: I loved the route, great support, not too congested, an enjoyable run. I will definitely run this one again. Date of review: April 7, 2008
In short: Such a shame a good run, with great crowd support was ruined by sthe start and finish In full: Good stuff: Crowd support was magnificent, always love seeing the elites pass in a race (although felt sorry for some of them having to find space to pass us slower runners), the food in the goody bag was fantastic - never has a mars bar tasted so good.
Bad stuff: The delayed start was very difficult, particularly delaying from 11 to 12. Cold, wet and muddy waiting in the runners village. Trying to get in and out of the runners village was particularly difficult (and stressful).
At the finish the handing out of bags, t-shirts and foil blankets did not work as it should. There were so many people shouting to keep moving forward I nearly missed out altogether. As it was I missed the foil blanket and really started to get very cold queueing for the baggage.
The queue for the baggage was huge. Wouldn't it make more sense to not attribute number by likely finish time as seemed to be the case?
So the race itself was fine (unlike my running, but that is another matter altogether). The experience as a whole was dreadful - never to be repeated Date of review: March 17, 2008
In short: Great race, lovely location, superb organisation, fab chocolate too In full: What a great race. It was easy to find, parking was good and well organised, good facilities, amazingly flat course with some interest in West Camel. But the best bit was, of course, the Easter Egg at the end (and the fab t-shirt this year).
Despite feeling a bit under the weather I took well over a minute off my pb, so good all round.
Thanks for a great race Yeovil. Date of review: April 16, 2007
In short: Thank you Hogweeds for a fabulous race, its going to be my yearly challenge from now on. Hills, scenery, great marshals, fab food couldn't ask for more In full: I have decided that I love this race. It is a bit challenging, but nevertheless the scenery is fantastic and there are some spectacular downhill whizzy bits. The organisation is spot on and everyone is so friendly and welcoming.
A big, big thank you. Date of review: March 11, 2007
In short: Fab race, best marshals, wowee views and killer hills In full: Thank you Hogweeds for a wonderful run (well quite a few hills I walked - but thats not your fault). Flawless organisation and wonderful marshalling. If the memory of Kilcott fades I will be back next year. Date of review: March 20, 2006
