I hate 10k distance but this was glorious and a fab run. Absolutely stunning course. A few bumpy bits. Great course markings, loads of friendly marshals and it attracts friendly runners. Great massage at the end for a £5 charity donation, 50p for coffee and walnut cake, yay! Definitely going back.

Lovely event. Well-organised. Tough but spectacular course. I wouldn't recommend for first timers, but for hardened trail runners or those seeking a bit of adventure it's a must-do race.

Top race. Fantastic job all round - just the best organisation, admin, marshalls, signage etc. Massive thanks to all. Special mention for max irony sign 'keep smiling' near top of 3rd climb... Free beer/cider at the finish + excellent cakes. Yeah, there are hills but also spectacular downhills and incredible views. You need to do this race.
