In short: Hard as nails, with smooth organisations In full: This was my first Enduarancelife event and I was not disappointed! It was excellent, with a hard as nails course,very impressive organisation and some nice gooodies.
Maybe a bit pricy and would expect sports drinks and maybe a tea stop rather than just water and a few jellybabies, but considering Endurancelife organise a 10k, half mara, marathon and ultra trails all on the same day, the event and results ran like clockwork. Very slick, very impressive, very friendly with a great "un-clubby" atmosphere, I would highly recommend their events to anyone. Date of review: December 5, 2011
In short: A great race for scenery In full: This has to be one of the best races I've done for scenery.
The navigation instructions were excellent,and hall big enough to accomodate all which was good for pre race faffing but guidance and warning of the start as it's a 20 minute walk from HQ would be more helpful. However, everyone was friendly and the cake and rolls at the end very scrummy. Top race.
In short: A beautiful race by friendly people In full: Liss Runners can be proud of this race, great marshals, drinks at the right station, a friendly welcome at the finish and a lovely medal. The course is murderous but very scenic with varying terrain and many testing hills, both up and down.
This is my first time running the race and it's up with with one of my favorites. It has it all! Well worth the trip from London. Date of review: August 7, 2011

Definitely, a great way to start yuor Sunday! Date of review: April 10, 2011
In short: Smoothly organised, relaxed half. In full: A really friendly, well oiled and nippy race with a good challanging hill in the last mile and a great tanooy announcer and friendly kids handing out the medals and goody bags at the end. Weel worth travelling down the M20 from London. Date of review: September 27, 2010
In short: A special race organised by some special people In full: I've heard so many good things about this race that I could not believe how they were all true. It's not just the scenery, clockwork organisation and value for money, but it is the added extra of the hospitality that makes this race one of the best and so special. Friendly, accommodating to all and above all else, fun. Date of review: September 12, 2010
In short: Flat, well organised race In full: once again, excellent organisation, just about the most throughly marshalled race who are very friendly and encouraging.
Loved the sponge stops and the commentary, however the only down point is the distinct lack of loos and signage to them. Just a mall point, but I think this is the improvement to the brilliant, helpful and friendly organisation. Date of review: April 12, 2010
In short: Excellent organisation, marshalls, scenery and food In full: I'd like to echo all of the positive comments on here on what was an excellent day. Very few races can boast a cooked meal for all finishers, which was much welcome.
Went nearly two miles off course at 17 miles due to no flour mark at a t-junction after the farm, but I won't blame anyone for this. Lost me a few places, but this ended up being even better marathon training!
Can't wait for next year. Date of review: April 6, 2010
In short: A beautiful race by beautiful people In full: This beautiful but tough course just got tougher with a one mile extension and more hills towards the end. A good challenge. Once again, Wadhurst and Nice Works do themselve proud with slick, friendly and welcoming organisation, a brilliant goodie bag and fantastic homemade cakes to choose from at the finish. To hear the bras band half a mile from the finish was welcoming too! Magic. Date of review: July 6, 2009
