In full: Absolutely fantastic run in glorious weather!
It is a proper trail: no running at all on road and all on very varied terrain so never a dull moment. And don't get me started on those hills in the second half, I wasn't expecting anything so tough but the views were all worth it.
For an inaugural race, I thought it ran like clockwork and everyone was lovely: very friendly and encouraging marshals, a funny race director cracking jokes at the start, nice ladies serving tea and delicious lemon and chocolate cakes (all free) at the finish.
It is only a small race but it is the way it should be. I would definitely do it again. Oh and thanks for the memento hat too!
A perfect day out. Thank you! Date of review: March 17, 2014
In full: A proper trail, very diverse terrain with a fair bit of hills. There were one or two places in the last few miles where the way could have been better indicated but that can be easily improved next time. Thoroughly enjoyable day/morning out, good facilities, friendly marshalls and organisers...bananas and jelly beans at each water station...and FREE and delicious cakes and tea at the finish. All this for less than a tenner. Thank you! Will do it again. Date of review: September 22, 2013
In full: Great race, definitely worth getting up on NY's day despite the freezing cold. Very well organised, very friendly and encouraging marshalls. I love the fleece hat they gave us at the end. Date of review: January 1, 2010
