In short: Excellent value, Really well organised, good support throughout the race, quick course and last mile is down hill which helps. Goody bag, had a technical t-shirt in it, drink, banana and energy bar. Will do it next year. Date of review: September 19, 2013
In short: The course was great, just a few minor details that can be improved on.. In full: The course was very enjoyable, well marshalled and has lots of mud. You really need to make sure you get to the carpark at least an hour before the race. It's a 10 min walk to get to the race HQ from the carpark, then you have to queue for your race number, then you have to queue to put your bag away at the bag store. You have to warm up aswell. When I left to jog down to the start which took 10min from race HQ, there was still a huge queue of people trying to put their bags away. I got to the start and just a couple of minutes later the race started so those guys must have missed the start of the race. The race itself was well marshalled with a cheeky run down a stream at the end.
