In short: Crazy! Not for the faint hearted. In full: The conditions were awful starting with the car park which was a sheet of black ice. The route was icy, snowy, slushy, muddy, slippery and sandy. Oh and there were a few hills too! And with the early start it was no wonder so many stayed in bed. That said it was a great race the marshalling and organisation was superb. Great atmosphere and camaraderie between the runners too. Well worth the effort, but don't expect a PB!
In short: Varied course and the weather turned out nice! In full: Very friendly, well organised and well marshalled run with a very varied field. Sure there wasn't 400+ runner though. Course had quite a few narrow bits due to the mud and some of the mile markers (thought it was a 10k!) were missing. Very varied under foot too - grass, mud, flint, sand, all sorts. Overall a good and enjoyable morning - and to think I could have had a lay in with breakfast in bed; twas Father's day after all! Ps Hope the cyclist was okay. Date of review: June 17, 2012
