In short: A wounderfull race to convert road runners to off road In full: Been promising myself this race for a few years, and glad I did it. the weather was poor for the afternoon rain and wind (perfect) the course was not as challanging as I was expecting and quite fast, however the second half was right up my street Steep hills and bogs. The suportes on the train made more noise than the train itself. A good race to convert runners to off road Date of review: August 18, 2013
In short: Don't belive that Cambridge is flat In full: We read the previous reviews and went along expecting to see a shambles...... We didn't. The race was well organised with a wonderful atmosphere at the back (may have been at the front too but we never see that bit). The course was only just multi terrain but if the weather went bad there would be some interesting sections. Only a couple of suggestions: 1. Start it a bit earlier 2. The drinks at the half way point were on the ground and a little difficult to get down and back up to. I would definitely recommend it as a first time multi terrain marathon, Thank you to the Organisers for an enjoyable afternoon. Date of review: March 4, 2013
In short: Gentelay undulating all very runable In full: One of the dryest years I have done it (prefer it wetter) the marshals were wounderfull and all bar 2 of the caddets were offering encoragement. The only slight issue was the lack of water at the finish. I will be back with hopefully more water every where (especialy on the course) Date of review: November 28, 2011
In short: On the whole a good fun run (could do with being 10 miles though) In full: The event could only have been improved by a better pa system (or pa operator, the feed back and volume was not good) and during the 2 mins silence the only sound was the slamming doors of the portaloos (that detracted from the poinientcy of the silence).
On the whole a big thank you to the organisers Date of review: November 15, 2010
In short: Hills hills and more hills (and some mud too) In full: If you don't like hills this is not for you, great race and very taxing mentally and physically. My only criticism is it could do with more water stations (not that there is many flat places to put them). Date of review: October 27, 2008
