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.

My first 8.1 mile Trail Run and it was brilliant It was my first trail run and it was brilliant. Plenty of parking and the toilet facilities were very clean. Atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. Plenty of Marshalls along the way and runners very friendly and always had encouraging words. Definitely hope to go back next year!

Colworth marathon challenge - Well organised event with great atmosphere Recommended event, organisation was brilliant; enough toilets, lovely camping area, bar and plenty of food and ice cream on sale, plenty of parking, scenic course, entertainment for children on day 1, great camaraderie between the competitors, volunteers and Marshalls were excellent, enjoyable presentation, f1 was on in the bar, free Lipton ice tea and great mementos.

My only small moans to a very well organised event is that I liked the tshirt given on day 2 and would have liked one that fit. I feel there should have been more small tshirts. most people who did the event were not large or extra large. The medium top I got was most definetly more like a large. I am a size 14 and bigger in my middle area and it is a tent on me.

The course is very scenic and this is positive however I feel competitors should be more aware of how prone you are to injury on day 2. I feel a reasonable amount people obtained ankle twisting injuries (people were talking about them) including both myself and my husband due to the uneven surface for most of the run. I have had an ankle injury before and it put me out of running for some months.

Thank you for organising an enjoyable event.

This is how a race weekend shold be no gimmicks just good fun racing Despite this being my first try and not finishing due to an injury on Sunday have never felt so disappointed not to finish something it's that good. This is what running is all about, every body having fun and competition at what ever level. No fancy gimmicks just good extremely well organised no thrills fun. Friendly runners, organisers, marshalls and volunteers. 3 challenging courses which test all abilities. A must do
