In short: Beautiful scenery, perfectly organised In full: Never done this race before, but wished I had! Beautiful scenery, excellently marked course (never looked at the course notes and I'd never run here before but didn't put a foot wrong even on the 2nd loop where I ran much of it alone), great marshalls, everything was spot on. Even had free sausage, chips and beans afterwards as well as the crime egg and t-shirt (which I haven't eaten, yet). Thanks to all involved, I'd love to do this race again Date of review: April 20, 2014
In short: beautiful race, beautifully organised In full: the best organisation, amazing marshalls, stunning scenery, great value and a pint and cake at the end. What trail running is all about Date of review: September 9, 2013
In short: good fun race, very well organised In full: thanks to all involved in organising this great race, especially Dr Rob and the marshals. I loved it. There's something for everyone - from those that want a real challenge in 26.2m to those who do it for the goodies at the end with a medal, top (with name on it), and a mug.

In short: cold, fun but could be better In full: what a fantastic race, I'm still bearing the battle scars from encounters with the ice!
But, why is there not better signage to the race, from the amount of people I saw doing u turns on the way there I wasn't the only one to find it difficult to get there and the maps/directions didn't help once you got near.
Yes, there was a delay and it was announced on the PA system, but unless you were at the front of the queue you hadnt a chance of hearing it.
And I've never seen such miserable marshalls, I know it was cold, but on the way in and out all they did was stand in the middle of the road. I suppose in the cold conidtions they were just doing impressions of snowmen, and as useful!
Still, had a great time, but next time can the organisers please be ready for cold conditions? Date of review: November 28, 2010
In short: my new favourtite race In full: having not done this before I didn't realise it would be quite SO challenging. But that made if it all the more fun in what was an exceptionally organised race in an amazing setting. Date of review: September 13, 2010
In short: what a great run, fantastically organised In full: this is the second time I've done this race, and one of the great things about this year is the way they've tried to act on the feedback they've had. Not many organisers go to that extent for their runners! And the result is a race that's very well organised, across beautiful, if at times punishing scenery! I'll be there next year Date of review: July 5, 2010
In short: better than promised... In full: they even managed to organise the perfect conditions for a brilliant race. I can only reflect other people's compliments of the fantastic marshalls and overall organisation. I loved it, even if it did hurt! Date of review: June 21, 2010
