In short: Odd course but well organised In full: This is the toughest road marathon I have ran due to the hills. which I consider to be a plus! It is an odd course but I enjoyed seeing the other runers on the opposite side of the road a few times. Well ogranised, very nice medal and a great tech t shirt Date of review: April 8, 2011
In short: Great race In full: Well organised, good value for money and tough. This race is what running is all about and on a nice clear day the views are amazing. There is a fun down hill section through the woods at the end which is it worth saving some energy for! Date of review: March 8, 2011
In short: Great Race In full: Well organised, lots of marshals and a very nice rout. The organisation was good and the end was great with lots of nice cakes. This was a great event and well worth doing, the organisers should be proud of themselves. Date of review: September 22, 2010
In short: Tough race, hilly and fun In full: The race was shortened this year to just over 10 miles sadly. Ogranisation was ok and the medal at the end was quite nice. If you like hills and nice views you will love it. Date of review: February 12, 2010
In short: Quick 3 lap course In full: Pretty good race, low key event. Didn't hear anything from the organisers before the event but on the day the organisation was ok. The course has PB potential and over all it is worth doing. Date of review: February 12, 2010
In short: Great event In full: One of the toughest races I have done. As everybody has said it was muddy very muddy. Some nasty hills thrown in too but all in all very rewarding, I am still smiling about it now. The rout was varied terrain through some beautiful country side, the views from the top of the big hill at about mile 20 almost made it worth while climbing up there! The organisation was ok, no issues came up would have preferred a medal to a shot glass but not everybody likes medals. One of the best Iâ€™ve done.
In short: Hot, tough and challenging. In full: This is the second year in a row for me and I will be back next year as well. Well organised, the marshals where friendly and the support was good. This is a bit of a hilly course, but worth doing and does have PB potential. The facilities at the start and finish where good. This is a bit of a no frills race but for me it ticks all the boxes for a good one.
