In short: fantastic race in 2009 - shame it got cancelled in 20101 In full: I did this race in 2009 and it was fantastic. The course is quite tough with a few hills but fantastic scenery and great finishers medals.
The organisers were very efficient, keeping all competitors up to date and creating a very friendly atmosphere. Unfortuantely the race got cancelled due to the terrible weather and the organisers did a very good job of notifying all competitors who had individually as well as sending out e-mails and putting it up on the website with photos on the saturday morning. I ran the course later that afternoon and completely agree with the organisers as there were large patches of black ice round the whole course making it very dangerous.
I will definitely be doing it next year!! Date of review: January 29, 2011
