In short: Friendly and Fast In full: A very well organised first time event. Apart from the slightly congested start, I have no complaints at all. It was a scenic and fast rote, and enjoyed the mud! Was also a nice touch that race times and positions were communicated at the end of the race.
Will definitely be back in 2012. Date of review: October 31, 2011
In short: Beautiful and challenging In full: Despite the sub zero temperatures and a delayed train meaning I missed the start, I still thoroughly enjoyed this event. 1st leg was unbelievably tough, and my hamstrings felt ready to pop on the stony descent of the final leg! Friendly enthusiastic marshalling who looked freezing, but still kept smiling was inspirational. It was unfortunate that some people were sent off course, and I agree with the point that unless it's happened to you, then it's difficult to empathise, especially if you've trained for weeks/months. However I cannot praise this event highly enough. I shall spread the word and be back next year. Date of review: December 1, 2010
In short: Dull and expensive In full: Considering this was a Lucozade sponsored event the value was shocking. The scenery was dull which was expected, but for 25 pounds you got a mug and a drinks holder! I have recieved a medal and a nice t shirt for similar events at half the price. Marshalls also unenthusiastic. Would not recommend. Date of review: March 30, 2010
