Another great weekend ran by the Colworth Striders, a real credit to Unilever. Unbelievable value even before you throw in the free camping. Well marshalled with plenty of water stations, 5/5 on Trip advisor. Loved the new addition of the breakfast porridge and fruit, one less bowl of washing up. Thank you.

Wonderfully welcoming, small event but very friendly. Excellent marshalling and very friendly and helpful out on the course (it was about 75 degrees and really tough in the heat) but plenty of water (in cups) available. We were near the back and there was still plenty. Out of the whole weekend we did get a little bit lost once on the half which was a bit annoying but we were tired and hot and missed the green arrow. Will pay attention next time! Other than that, totally seamless organisation - a very well oiled machine. Majority were club runners but we weren't and felt totally included and very welcome. We made good use of the bar after each run to watch the World Cup and recover!

Very well organised with super friendly marshals. Camping available FOC the whole weekend and food provided at very reasonable prices. Routes are challenging in places but not so hard as to put people off. There's a cross the board selection of runner capabilities. A good event to get the taste of off road running

10th time I've completed the marathon challenge. The courses are testing in places and a joy (downhill sections) in others. A really well organised weekend.

Smaller attendance than I expected but a really nice friendly family vibe. Free camping a great idea! Nice bling. Challenging 8 miler on the 2nd day, plenty of water stops, very good value for money, definitely a worthwhile challenge, enjoyed it!

This fantastic weekend is well organised and amazing value for money. My second year of attending with my running club and we had an amazing time again. The courses are tough but this makes it more fun. Great venue, great courses, free camping and a bar on site!

A challenging weekend of camping and running, but the fun family friendly atmosphere makes it all worth it. Brilliantly organised, great value for money, you'll travel home on Sunday with a Great Big Grin.

A fantastic weekend camping and running. I couldn't recommend enough, the courses are beautiful off road races, challenging but also lovely - the organization, marshalls and everyone taking part are outstanding. We will definitely be returning! Thank you very much - from the East London Runners !

Very enjoyable run, even in the heat. I only did the half-marathon, rather than the full 3-day challenge, but was really impressed with the race. Very well organised, friendly, great marshalling, plenty of water, and a lovely rural route. Would certainly recommend, but next time I'd probably wear trail running shoes.
