Number 6 - Folksworth 15

As the name suggests this was a 15 mile, undulating road race. I have to say the organisation of this race was perfect, from the minibus to transport you to the race head quarters to the marshaling I could not fault it. Everyone was really friendly and there was a lot of support.
The race itself was picturesque though there are three hills which you have to do twice as it is a 2 lap course. The last of which at 7 and 14 miles was tough (though I did not stop).

I would definitely do this race again as it was very enjoyable.


Number 5 - Ropsley Raid 13

Well this was a really tough race for me. It was all cross-country which is not my strong point.

However despite the difficulty of the terrain, it was a great race. The weather was perfect on the day. The organisation was great, it was a really nice quiet race with 131 competitors, which made it an intimate and enjoyable experience.
The other competitors where really friendly and there was a great camaraderie with everyone helping everyone else to complete the course.

I would do this again, even though I did not enjoy the terrain.
