“Spot on, really impressed from arriving to leaving (especially the bit in between) A smallish event but everything about it was great – it had a local feel about it – in a good way. The course was certainly challenging, hills galore to enjoy / endure. Don’t be put off by the intertwining course – works like clockwork. Did this race last minute and 100% a great decision – look out for it next year.”
“Fantastic race …The hills of hell but what a amazing race, the course is hilly and a tough trail but at the same time enjoyable. stunning course, great mix of friendly runners, very well organised and VERY well marshalled and signed course. ”
