Conny this was more about staying upright than running... freezing cold, couldn't even get my shoes off on my own at the end of the race...  good laugh though Unaffiliated 2:40:00 2:40:00 2:15:00 2:40:00 29.92
daz1927 Much muddier, and hence harder, than when I'd run this before.  Smashed my knee on a brick/rock when I went down in one of the waterry bits, blood and mud look sooo lovely together :-) Village Vipers 1:30:30 1:30:30 1:30:00 1:30:30 47.92

Jigs 9 and a bit miles of grass, mud, road, mud, sh!te, freezing cold waist deep water, mud, hills, mud, more sh!te... did I mention mud? Didn't enjoy this as much as I expected to, don't think it was the mud that put me off but the sh!te! If I want mud again I'll do Cardiac arrest again. Mud water and hills, no sh!te and 30 miles away instead of 130!! Unaffiliated 1:38:46 1:38:46 1:38:46 43.59

lottypotty Mud,mud & more mud....& some very cold water.....still enjoyed it & didn't feel too knackered at the end, though tomorrow I suspect I may ache. Agree with Mr & Mrs Jigs comments, the start was totally disorganised & those who were in position when the race started may need to revisit the word Weston AC, Womens Running Network Weston-super-Mare 0 0 0.00

Mrs Jigs (Luverlylegs) Jigs and I ran this one together for a bit of fun :) :) :) Iit seems while the majority of people were assembled on the playground paying our respects for Remembrance Day others were already at the start line and had a head start.

Quite a good race, less hilly than I thought it would be, far to much animal poop which was off putting, ploughed fields were slippery and hard work, otherwise a good event, you could tell when you were approaching the serious water sections as spectators were baying for blood, paid them back by splashing some with muddy water LOL :) Lovely to see Sparkly Bridget at the start looking all bouncy and full of fun! :) and nice to meet mjm37 and his litlins at the finish :) I was lucky enough to win a spot prize, but unlucky that it was a bottle of wine, no good to a non drinker. oh and I should say, the Tshirts don't half look nice :)

ToBaldlyGo Much worse time than last year, butconditions were 'challenging' and still suffering the tail end of flu. Happy to get round. Weston AC 2:08:17 2:08:17 1:40:00 2:08:17 37.70
Ultra Sparkly Bridget (USB) What can I say? It was mud, mud, mud ............ oh and a bit of water as well.  I think I am going to hurt in places I didn't know I had tomorrow morning ;-)  Oh yes, I got a spot prize as well, a huge bar of chocolate :-) Buckingham and Stowe Running Club 2:07:37 2:07:37 2:07:37 39.86
