In short: Beautiful, hard, well organised race!! In full: The marshals and organisation were brilliant!! Lovely scenic course (with a wee hill to start with!) and the buffet at the end was yummy as anything!! Loved every secnd of it. This was my friends 2nd 10k and she did it in 59 minutes but totaly loved it and found everyone very encouraging and welcoming. Thanks Penicuik Harriers I'll be back next year!

In short: Excellent, well organised race, with a tough, scenic course In full: Really well organised race with a tough scenic course. The hill at 3 miles was a killer, but didn't mind the one at 4.5 and 7 miles. 8th female back, which i'm chuffed about! marshalls were friendly and encouraging the whole way. it's a pity if this is going to be the last one!

In short: Hard, muddy race with tough hills..... totally enjoyed it!!!! In full: Slightly longer than 10k. First 3 miles were a good warm up for what was to come!! Marshalls were friendly and pointed us in the right direction. A tough race for a 10k but good intro into xcountry running. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone (even my 62 year old mum did it in 1 hour!!). Date of review: June 25, 2006
