In short: A good challenge - tough against that wind In full: Drier than previous years, making only a few muddy patches. A good challenge, helping to gain miles for longer spring events. Date of review: January 29, 2007
In short: Tough challenge on a glorious day for running In full: Really enjoyed this one, but my legs are complaining like hell! A hard race with several hills to work on ... the bogs were thick and glutinous, and the beach a long hard plod. A great weekend away, and can't wait for next year. Date of review: March 14, 2005
In short: A tough challenging race In full: I only entered this race to give me some distance and terrain training for the Grizzly next month, but I have to say that I really enjoyed the first half, though I started to struggle in the second half.
I even beat my predicted time of 3:00 - 3:00, finishing in 2:58:41, despite the organiser arranging for the full spectrum of weather possibilities - hail, snow, sunshine, blue sky, and wind - lots of wind.
I hope to return nextr year, despite the 5:30 alarm call! Date of review: February 14, 2005
