In short: A really great challenging race. In full: This one is a big of a challenge thanks to its hilly course, but with a bit of preparation it is definitely worthwhile. The event was really well organised and looked after runners really well with warmth blankets at the finish, banana's, flapjacks and all of the water you could need which I guess is what you pay for.
All in all it is nice to have a race with this scenery and the challenges in the calendar. Date of review: October 7, 2012
In short: All the makings of a really great race with some minor improvements In full: This was my first 'race' event, and from that perspective I found it very easy to get into, and the group of runners seemed very relaxed and social.
I can agree with the majority of comments, water bottles, marshalls / signage, and organisation at the end of the race would make this that much better. Date of review: August 31, 2012
