In short: Fantastic challenging race in its 2nd year In full: I was back for a second time as I enjoyed it so much last year. Beat my time too! Fantastic organisation again with friendly marshalls. Only thing that could be improved - still couldn't hear what was said at the start line. Was convinced I was going to run up the 2nd big hill, but had forgotten quite how steep it was... Thanks again for a really enjoyable race Date of review: April 30, 2010
In short: Very scenic enjoyable race In full: Had a fantastic time! Clear directions to car park. Lots of marshalls & encouraging spectators. Liked the sponge/water station idea. Official jelly baby station great. Didn't think it was that hilly. Glad I had my own water at the finish line, as it was too busy. Goody bag was a bit disappointing, would have preferred more snacks instead. Overall, well organised & would definitely recommend it Date of review: September 28, 2009
In short: Well organised race for a good cause In full: Very well organised & lots of excellent pants! Shame that there weren't more people though. Nice goody bag with lots of water available at the finish on a hot day. Nice touch - organised stretching sessions by the finish line Date of review: June 16, 2009
In short: Well organised XC race In full: Like the other reviewer said, organisation was spot on. 2 BIG hills & pretty slippy due to all the mud, but really enjoyed it. I also managed to get a small t-shirt, bonus! (swapped over by a lovely marshall) Date of review: April 18, 2009
In short: A bit hilly & overall thoroughly enjoyable race In full: Would definitely recommend for beginners. Registering to race on the day was very easy. Car parking well signed & close by. Friendly & encouraging marshalls & locals.
