In short: The hills get steeper every year. In full: I have run this race every year for the past few years and I just love it. My only tiny gripe is that there seem to be increasingly fewer old joggers like me in relation to the speedy club runners. It used to be full of Santa hats and elves but not any more. Makes me feel a tiny bit dispirited about my slow speed. Date of review: December 8, 2014
In short: Great fun as usual and special thanks to the cheery friendly marshalls. In full: I really love this race, but it was a shame that there was no water by 10 o'clock when us slowies reached the top of the hill. Also thanks for the mug, but I would have preferred a medal especially as it was the 50th Hogs Back.
Notwithstanding all that, I really enjoyed myself and thanks again for the wonderful organisation and friendly, encouraging marshalling. Happy Christmas! Date of review: December 23, 2009
In full: A great fun run. Extremely well organised, with a proper organised warm up/work out at the start. Plenty of water from start to finish. The marshalls were really smiley, friendly and encouraging all the way round. Great stuff. Date of review: April 25, 2009
