In short: A great race with PB potential In full: I really enjoyed this race. I agree with what others have written about the start being too chaotic. It would have been helpful to break down the 2 hours+ runners more. I am not the quickest but even I found that there were some very slow runners/walkers getting in the way. The finish was a bit chaotic. When you are blowing out your backside it is really hard to tell where to go for your goodie bag although it's contents were great.
Apart from those minor gripes, the atmosphere was brilliant, the course was good and I will definitely do it again next year! Date of review: October 16, 2012
In short: Really enjoyable all terrain race! In full: This was an all-terrain race in which you ran across fields, on tarmac and through woodland trails.
It was a wet morning and as a consequence it was very muddy in places meaning that you could slip and slide a lot if you were not careful. Judging by the number of DNS on the results there were a lot of people who did not fancy it because of the weather, but I absolutely loved it!
The only room for improvement was that it would have been nice to have the chip time as well as the gun time in the results. Apart from that it was a well organised race but not necessarily for the faint-hearted! Date of review: September 24, 2012
