In short: Great value from a club organised run In full: Windy conditions this year, but that did not really impact too much on what was a well organised run. THe field size is good and the course has great potential for breaking a PB. I would certainly recommend this Date of review: November 2, 2013
In short: Hilly Muddy Climbs In full: What a great race. My first time. Loads of marshalls and on course support throuhout on what is one of the most physically demanding courses I have ever run. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to test themselves. Date of review: February 7, 2010
In short: Brilliant race, would recommend to all standards In full: Some how I managed to knock over 3 minutes off my time from last year and get a PB, although you would not normally consider this to be a PB course.
Got to be alert to hear the starter, could do with an air horn.
No better location for a run Date of review: June 13, 2009
In short: A Beautiful Day and a great place to run In full: I really enjoyed the run today. There were great facilities at the start and well organised parking. Although the gun Lady was struggling to pull the trigger to get the race started!!
The start seemed a little cramped and the first 2 miles were slower than usual as there were a lot of runners (of all abilities) within a fairly narrow trail.
My only other negative would be that the 2nd drink station wasn't ready for us when we got there.
That said it was nice to do a half marathon off the roads and I would recommend this course to others. Date of review: March 15, 2009
