In short: Friendly, sociable race on some gorgeous trails around sheffield. Hilly! In full: This unique race was fantastically organised. Almost weekly there was an update about it on facebook with competitions to win prizes....one of which I won (a free massage).
The race consisted of 11 timed stages. The bits inbetween the stages could be either walked or ran depending on personal preferences. We ended up jogging most of ours due to the legs stiffening up due to the steep up and down hill sections. You could do the race as a pair or solo.
The course was tough (if your not used to hills and trails) but it was so much fun and the scenery was fantastic. It was great to talk to so many people inbetween the timed sections, everyone seemed to be thoroughly enjoying it and in good spirits.
Afterwards there was a BBQ and beer tent....the beef burger was a tasty treat after such a hard run.
The only negative I can think of for the event is that there was only one trophy for the pairs prizes....difficult to decide who was going to take it home, everything else was perfect Date of review: July 12, 2014
In short: Fabulous unique race. Run in 2012 In full: Fabulous race that starts and finishes on the beach on the east coast. The rest is made up of road, cliff sides and short stretches on the beach. Tough race but extremely enjoyable. Lots of support as you run through some of the little villages. Bus organised to take you to the start. Nice race top given to all those that's complete Date of review: December 2, 2012
In short: Fabulous run around derwent dam, the scenery was stunning and took your mind of some of the hills. Undulating course. Home made buns and cakes awarded to all finishes. A very special race that fills up extremely quick! Date of review: December 1, 2012
In short: Very flat 10mile race around the race course and countryside in thirsk, starting and finishing at the race course. Nice race but it was spoilt alittle by needing to run up and down one road for about 2 miles just to make the mileage up to ten Date of review: December 1, 2012
In short: Tough undulating course through Bawtry forest woods. Just over a 10k. Not a course for a PB. Extremely muddy, almost lost a trainer-think I should have worn my trail shoes! In full: I did this in 2012 Date of review: December 1, 2012
In short: Very undulating course, tough in places but scenic. Enjoyed reading the words of encouragement along the way and seeing some of the marshalls/sponge givers in fancy dress! Date of review: December 1, 2012
In short: Out and back 10k, mostly flat, good for a PB. Large number of entrants so a little cramped at the start. In aid of help the aged so the slightly steep price was worth it! Date of review: December 1, 2012
In short: A lovely scenic run which was very well organised. The only negative was the weather but that made it all the more challenging. Plenty of drink stations and Marshals along the way Date of review: December 1, 2012
