In short: A real challenge for a first ultra In full: Overall a very well organised challenge, excellent course with fantastic scenery and plenty of variety of terrain. Well placed checkpoints with friendly supportive marshals, i would have quite liked some bananas rather than biscuits and jelly babies at the checkpoints though. but that is my only gripe. A great momento for finishing. An excellent event and great value, i'll definitley be back.

In short: Roll on next year. In full: I absolutely loved this race, it's right on my doorstep and its a real test for a short race. I last did it 30 yrs ago when it was a bit easier but I was only 12 and there were no junior races as there are now. It was great to see so many kids there along with my little boy who also really enjoyed his race. Thanks to all the marshals and organisers who make these races happen.
