In short: Cracking scenary, great little trophy and a flat course In full: A really great race, the course is out from folkstone towards Hythe and back to Folkstone and is flat as a pancake so lots of potential for a PB. It says you get a medal, but we actually got a really nifty little trophy in the shape of a trainer! Very good all in all. Date of review: May 27, 2013
In short: Nice scenery, but a bit chaotic at the finish In full: Plus points: Nice scenery Flat course plenty of water stations
Minus points: Chaotic finish with cars and bikes leaving the finish line area while runners still coming in, its just not fair so stop people parking right by the finish line! I'd go with another reveiwer who said lose the t shirt and spend a bit more on the medal as people will look at this in years to come and think about that race and weather they should do it again! Didn't like to loop part at around the 6 mile point where we went half way down a lane only to turn around again just to make up the mileage.
I may do it again, mainly because i enjoyed the course and the scenery. Date of review: March 14, 2013
In short: If you like racing through pure bogs, then this ones for you! In full: Raced here yesterday, and it was tougher than i expected. The first 2.5mile run was fine, then cam the 7.5mile bike through deep mud and sludge which made it interesting and enjoyably tough, then a 4.5 mile run through said sludge! Great fun but make sure you bring a change of clothes! Date of review: January 14, 2013
