In short: Oh my giddy aunt! In full: Well, I entered this because the cute name attracted me. Big mistake! I am not a hills person, so this race was realy not for me. It just went up and up and up. Then sharply down before going up and zig-zaggy again. I would have been happy to have died at times!
However, if you like hills, I would recommend it. The scenery was stunning, and running through the beech woods in the dappled light was lovely. The marshals were excellent and very encouraging, and Marie, the sweeper was great. Sorry I couldn't finish with a floruish, Marie, I had nothing left to give.
Loved the 2 hippos in one of the water features - but I seem to be the only one who saw them - was I hallucinating?
Loved the free tea and stickies at the end, too, oh, and the lovely towel, too. Loved lots about it, it's just not my sort of terrain. Date of review: April 18, 2010
In short: Thank you In full: As Race Organiser, I would like to thank all you mad runners for taking part today, and for being so kind to the marshals who must have been freezing. And a very BIG thank you to everyone who helped out with marshaling and race HQ. Couldn't have done it without you. Was a little nervous this morning after several phone calls indicating that a tummy bug had decimated my 'workforce', but everyone pulled together and made it a very succesful event. The children of Azul Wasi orphanage will be very grateful. Thank you. Date of review: February 14, 2010
In short: Thank you! In full: I was the organiser for this event, and I';d like to pass on to all those who took part my thanks, and to say that I've been getting good feedback about you all from the marshalls, who to a man (and woman) have been saying 'everyone was so friendly and polite, what lovely people'
Thanks again, your fees will make a lot of Peruvian children very happy. Hope to see you again next year.
