In short: One of the best organised and most fun races I've ever done. In full: Great race, great atmosphere and a real "festival feel" to it. All the runners were really friendly before, during and after the race. Impeccably organised and everyone had a smile on their face despite the tough course. Definitely one to do again. My only issue was that the cider wasn't ready at the love station when I got there.
Best race of the year so far. Date of review: June 28, 2015
In short: Excellent as usual. In full: The fourth time in five years for me. Very well organised as usual. Even though the race HQ was at the fire station, due to building works at the leisure centre, everything went smoothly. There was even a techinical tee shirt this year. Looking forward to returning in 2016. Date of review: March 9, 2015
In short: My Favorite race for a few years. In full: I entered the 32 as I have a couple of 50ks and a 50 miler under my belt but this was something else (in a good way) a brilliant but tough course, exeptional organisation, brilliant marshals and a festival type atmosphere. Every runner got cheered in. From those at the sharp end right up to the last finishers. Great food and drink on offer afterwards which made it an awesome weekend. Cant wait to sign up for next year!

In short: Exllent Tough course, need to separate runners from joggers In full: Is a great challenging course, never one for a PB but those hills will separate the men from the boys. I chose to do my own warm up as I know what bits i need to stretch but that meant i had to start near the back and taking a good 20 seconds to cross the line and then having to push and shove (not something I like to do) get anywhere near the runners of similar ability. It would be great if they could separate the "runners" fron the "joggers" at the start which i`m sure would make the start a lot better for all. I`m not too bothered about official timings as have a watch but I would like to know what position I came in, even if they only gave them out for the first 20 or so. A couple of easy tweaks could make this race brilliant! Date of review: November 7, 2011
