In short: Hot &Hilly as usual - Great organisation & great kids events In full: Brilliant day out.....hard course as normal but still a grat race. Great races for the kids as well! my 4 yr old really enjoyed his 300m race & getting his medal & goddy bag to boot. 1st time time in a race for me with a fire engine tearing past at the 2k ish mark!!!!. Good idea to put a water station in at the foot of the last hill..... Big thanks to all the marshalls, brilliant work by all you guy's & girls. Date of review: June 8, 2008
In short: Get some portaloos - otherwise Great In full: Great scenery, good marshalls, Great Crowd.....a definate race for 2009. KM markers were a little suspect on positioning Got a PB on this one but it was slower than I wanted to do....not the fault of the course though. All in all a good race..............

In short: Good course, good scenery, hope the results are on the web site soon!!!!!! In full: Good Sunday out, nice course even though not quite flat. Didn't like the turn around point, messed my stride right up running round a post so would like to see a little loop in there. Loved the rose bowl start & Finish. Overall a good race with a PB potential. Date of review: February 18, 2008
In short: Hills & Gloious mud In full: Great race, now way a PB course, pack yr off roaders u need em. Killer hill @ 5 mile that i could not run up. Too many 5 bar gates to negotiate / hop over, advertised as 10 mile ish I got it to 10.39 on my gps.
Overall a damm good race.....good to be off road Date of review: February 8, 2008
In short: Brilliant run, a little supprised at the severity of the climb In full: What a race....very challenging for me not liking hills! However I really enjoyed this race & for me had a good time of 71 mins & in the top 100 (thats new). If anyone is thinking of doing this then stop thinking & send off yr cash it's well worth it. Keep up the good work Staffs see you next year...65min & top 50 maybee???.... PS thanks to all the marshals & the mountain rescue team for looking after us & braving the cold....... Slow Smithy.
