In short: Great organisation and friendly atmosphere compliment a scenic route that is must for all trial runners In full: This was my second time taking part in a Fat-Feet organised race, the first being the Grimsthorpe Ultra 70, and yet again I was blown away by the dedication the team put into ensuring the runners have not only a great race, but also a great experience. The route was worth the admission price alone, and luckily the sun finally came out when the race began. The race consisted of two 5 mile-ish laps, with a third lap taking you through an alternate route to the finish. The route was clearly labelled, and if in doubt where to go next marshals were never fall away to lend a hand. The route was fairly challenging which a surprising amount of hills, a good thing in my book.
The scenic route was complemented by enthusiastic marshals that helped keep moral high with encouragement and banter during the later stages of the race. Water stations were situation every 2-3 miles in plastic cups. The goody bags were as good as or better than most that are given out at these types of non-corporate races. In it I received two energy sachets, and an oat bar and a medal. Overall I would recommend this race to experienced runners all the way down to newbies entering their first race.
