In short: Tough Course but Beautiful In full: Fairly demanding 16 and a bit miles of trails with glorious views, sectacular scenery, lovely oen forest glades, hard hills... ooooh the hills! Wonderful last 2 miles in. Well organised and marshalled. Thanks so much. Will be back next year for more! Date of review: March 16, 2014
In short: Well organised, good value flat race with chip timing In full: Good facilities in the school... ie lots of toilets. Well organised. Good medal. Good T-shirt. Good goody bag. Lots of marshals. Went off without a hitch. Good atmosphere.
Shame about final corner to finish & a few morose marshals but it didn't spoil the event in anyway.
In short: Good PB 4 lap course with good cake, medal & T-shirt! In full: Windy as hell last year, rain this year.. to be honest was perfect once it stopped lashing down (for the kids!), knocked nearly 9 mins off my pb and got under 90 mins so i'm loving it! \o/
See you next year, will try and do all four.

Quality T-shirt and water bottle.. sweet. Lovely venue lots of free parking, easy to get to. All good. C'ya next year \o/ Date of review: October 18, 2009
In short: Nice friendly race with good medal, T-shirt & cakes.. In full: Got a PB 3rd year running, despite the heat and galley hill & the run accross the gravel.
Love the T-shirts from this race, only wish it was closer then i would definitely do the 5k's also.
Only potential problem was with the new water station position at the bottom of galley hill, as it was so hot, the runners coming back after the turn were after water and had to use the other side of the water table as the runners coming up to galley hill were using the correct side of the table. Were we meant to run past the station on the other side of the path? Could have led to some confusion...maybe it did. Glad it was there though.
