In short: Hard in places but scenic course In full: Always a great race to look forward to in the event calendar. Terrific crowd support and a picturesque circuit. Testing in places and a few nice hills near the end. Great fund raising event for Hospice in The Weald.
In short: THE BEST!!!! In full: Top marks AGAIN to Albert Kemp, Martin Burke, Nice Work Team, marshals/volunteers, cake makers and local residents for delivering an exceptional race event around the picturesque Bewl Water.
This race is FIRST CLASS and MUST be ranked in the top 5 in the country.
Let me know what other race events deliver the below?
Extensive pre-race emails Pickup service from train station Helpful car park wardens Toilets/changing rooms/showers Friendly Bag Drop Chip timing Highland major piper supportive marshals throughout the course Thoughtful residents with hose pipes Water lucozade jelly babies oranges sponge stations Great medal and goody bag Services of St John Ambulance Bananas Tea & Coffee Wide selection of tasty cakes Real Ale Brass Band Prizes/Trophies for race winners free massages Excessive family entertainment at the Greyhound Pub & Sports Centre
In short: Hardest race of my life!!! In full: Great organisation from Allan and the rest of the TWH team. Hills..... Hills and more Hills. Vertical might be a better word to describe them!! Twisted ankle on mile 0.5 which caused some discomfort during the race. (T Wells 10k, 16 Sept looking very unlikely) Shame the event doesn't boast a finishing medal as it would of been well deserved!!! On another plus side, good beer & cakes at the finish.

In short: Fantastic, Awesome, Amazing, Superb, First-Class, Premier!!!! In full: A big well done to Albert & the team for the best race ever!!! From top pre-race information to quality cakes and Harveys beer!
Question... The best race event in East Sussex/Kent? South East? or the UK?
Only one negative, my time.. I've be back next year to put that right!! Date of review: July 1, 2012
