Did the race in 2018
The race is what you would expect from a short multi-terrain race; fast flat and a steep hill.

This was my first trail run & although being fairly brutal on certain inclines, it was well worth the hard work to get to the top of Brent Knoll! Coming down was more fun than going up but all in all a very enjoyable first trail run experience. Trail running shoes are not a must but they would make a small difference!

Not really. . Course was easy to follow and well marshalled. . You need good grip but that's really in the name of the race isn't it?. . Really enjoyed it

There's a mile and a half flat twisty section to the base of the knoll to warm up followed by a near vertical ascent. The view at the top is breath taking on a clear day, which it was, and good to spend a minute getting my breath back! A full 360 degree view of Somerset. Overnight rain made the course sticky but not too muddy, fortunately. The descent marginally easier with a flattish section and return along the same twisty bit. The whole race is only five and a half miles but is a total experience and one for the serious runner. Trail shoes are essential.

Great fun, as always! Half the race is pancake flat, and the other half...isnt!
