In short: Total rip off. In full: The organisers have ignored my emails. I complained about the terrible organisation and complete lack of value for money. They must've made a fortune. Avoid at all costs. Date of review: December 26, 2013
In short: Have not posted the results in nearly a month! £16 entry before they sting you with £3 parking and no goody bag. Wait a week and run the route fro free. In full: I have done this race a couple of times as it fits in with my training plans for a larger race in December - but never again.
The final results still have not been posted online more than a month after the race - and despite me coming fourth my name is missing from the provisional results. It's expensive at £16 for on-the-day entry (not including parking) and the participants receive nothing but a cheap medal - not even a cup of tea. Who knows what kind of profit Ultramarathon are making without actually doing any real work. They have ignored all my emails to them asking when the results will be published, showing complete disregard for the participants lining their pockets.
I would suggest avoiding this shambles at all costs. Date of review: November 25, 2013
In short: Poor, very poor experience In full: No idea what the entrance fee was for..... Feel robbed if I am honest Distance of race short of 10k Not a timed race No Marshall's Route unclear and not explained before hand No separate starts by race distance... 5/10/half marathon or by runners anticipated finish times Lakes open to general public at same point Tiny medal, all the same regardless of race distance completed No water on route, although plastic cups available at end! Unable to hear instructions for barking dogs pre race start No goodie bag at the end
Overall, left angry, organisers clearly make a handsome amount of profit without giving anything at all to the runners. Could have arrived at the lake and ran at the same time on the same route for free Date of review: October 27, 2013
