In short: Very muddy course, but great fun. Recommended for blowing away the cobwebs. In full: The bad bits first: organisation was a bit haphazard, probably due the number of entrants. Start was delayed, and there were no mile markers. i finished early enough to get a t-shirt and water, but I know they ran out quickly.
On the plus side, the course was brilliant with tough climbs, lots of mud, plenty of clear route markers and enough marshals. The water tunnels were great, but I though waist high freezing water might be a bit much for some. The woman behind me fell over in the first one because of the uneven ground and needed a bit of help to get up again. I'll definitely be back! Date of review: December 31, 2012
