In short: Very well organised, Great Scenery, but not to be taken lightly In full: This is an unusual race which you cannot compare to any other race in distance and the nature of the course and the elevation, which maxes out about 580ft.
I'm luckily enough to live local to this race and have trained on most of the course before the day, however I still found it very challenging.
The whole race was very well organised and there were some many nice touches, such as free tea and cakes to all runners at the finish. I was also very pleased with my T-shirt, medal and goody bag which included a very nice Towel.
My hat goes off to the organizers, it must take a lot of effort to organize a race of this magnitude. There were so many obstacles, styles and a few crossings which were all marshaled incredibly well.
Also having followed the race's facebook page I was kept updated daily leading up to the race about the course conditions, which was very helpful.
If you are up for a challenge this race is for you, but I recommend that you include some hill training beforehand. Date of review: June 24, 2013
