In short: Very hard, but enjoyable In full: To make a weekend of the race Votwo allow people to camp at the site of their adventure runs the night before. There was a good turnout for the camping this year, probably because of the weather. The marshalls and organisers are all around in the evening too so it's a good friendly pre-raceday atmosphere swapping stories of other events and tip giving from the folks who'd run last year.
I found the race itself extremely hard but good fun. Most of the challenge in the run is the terrain with steep climbs and steep descents. The bog was worse than I remember it from last year coming up to the top of the leg in places. The addition of more obstacles on the finish straight prevented as much delay as there had been at the final wall last year and I think they made a good decision not to grease it as that would just have been too hard. Anyway in summary a challenging, fun and well organised event. Date of review: September 9, 2012
