In short: Just my kind of thing In full: I bloody love running over the soft, loose, and fine-gravelled surfaces thayt make up the trails in this area, they are so much more forgiving on your body than concrete roads.
Thank you Astley and Tydlesley - this is a cracking little race, i will be back every year from now on. Date of review: October 14, 2007
In short: I was well and truely smitten by the Gravy 6 In full: If you didn't experience the gravy 6 trail race in 2005 make sure you do it in 2006.
Primarily along the Longendale trail and taking in a loop of one of the many reservoirs in the area this race is perfect for those who like getting out into the fresh air of the countryside; away from the confines and the monotony of built up areas and traffic clogged roads.
Well done the Gravy lads it was a huge success, long may it continue.
In short: They don't come much better In full: If you are into trail running they don't come much better than this.
In my opinion this race really has got everything a trail race should have. It is a true 'multi terrain' event, with connecting stretches of cross country, trail, stony paths, grass paths, earth tracks, canal tow paths, disused railway lines, shady woods, riverside running etc etc.
