In short: Fantastic In full: I have nothing bad to say about this event. It was fabulous in every respect. A tough challenge, meaning the post-match beer felt well-earned! Date of review: January 10, 2011
In short: Fantastic! In full: My first multi-day race, and what a fantastic introduction this was. Tough (as expected) but great fun. The banter was great, the marshalls helped raise morale when the legs were tiring, and the organisation was spot on. Well done Neil and team! Date of review: November 25, 2010
In short: A fun, hard, interesting day out In full: A slightly odd choice for my first marathon distance, but I actually really enjoyed it. The route finding / reading of instructions broke the run up a bit, and the ever-changing terrain kept you on your toes.
The sign-posting was great - there was only one of two places where I wasn't completely sure where to go - and the instructions were great too.
Overall thanks to the organisers and marshalls for a great day.
In short: Nice course, good event In full: A really pleasant run through some scenic countryside. A quick course with pb potential - was on course for a pb until turning into the wind at mile 7, which slowed me down somewhat. Date of review: September 13, 2010
In short: Better than last year In full: Well, they opened the gates which made it a whole lot more pleasant than last year! And 2 minutes and 20 seconds quicker, so overall pretty enjoyable. I wouldn't travel far for it, but if you're local it's well worth doing. Thanks to the marshalls. Date of review: August 1, 2010
