Anyone run this one before? Is it a PB course? Even in a lovely setting, are 12 laps too much to remain interesting?

Not run it before but have signed up for it as my first marathon. Don't think 12 laps is ideal but on the plus side at least refeshments will pop up regularly...

Looked at this last year (thinking of doing the half) but as it had rained so much, we weren't sure of the running surface. When contacting the organiser he replied that trail shoes were advisable. Hopefully it's a bit dryer this year?

I'm running this. No idea how muddy it's going to be, so I'm taking some trail shoes and road shoes and will see how it looks when I get there. Never done a race with so many laps (except for 5000m on the track!), not sure if I'm looking forward to it or not!

I did kent road runner (17 laps) same as Ulen above - is good fun really

Just read that they've changed the course due to flooding/mud around the lake. Still 12 laps, but we don't go round the lake now (looks quite twisty!).

How was this race? I quite fancy it!
