  • Did the 9mi Mayhil Massacre - SAT in 2019

    This is a great race: beautiful & varying course with hills, tracks, forests, mud & views - you definitely wont get bored! Its pretty hilly and can get super muddy at times so its a tough 9 miler - make sure you pace yourself up the first big hill and save a little in your legs for the final climb.
  • Did the 15mi Mayhill Mayhem in 2019

    Without doubt one of the best races I've ever done. I usually race in warmer, flatter parts of the world - being based out in Sydney - so this was very different. But an epic different. Beautifully hilly and the terrain took us down windy woodland paths and snow covered fields. Really fun vibe at the finish line and a marvellous start to the weekend. Top tip: wear trail shoes - I didn't and I found myself slipping all over the place. Area of improvement: the course could do with a couple more signs.

    This was the longest run in terms of time and distance I ever run and my first trial run and it was just EPIC!The organisation was spot on but the best part was the atmosphere, people supporting and encouraging each other all the way to the end, I highly recommend it

    This was genuinely savage. It had snowed lots and was seriously cold so some lovely breaking through the frozen puddles as you run through! Its a brilliant race though - beautifully organised and some absolutely stunning views - especially up on the top of MayHill! Its definitely hard so I wouldnt take it ok if youre not ok to run a flat half marathon but its absolutely worth the effort. Great BBQ and coffees in the garden centre after and an awesome medal!!

    Well organised run. An uphill start with beautiful views at the top of Mayhill. Fantastic atmosphere amongst the runners
  • Did the 9mi Mayhil Massacre - SAT in 2019

    Liked the sound of this event. Thought it would be a goal to keep me running through winter which it most certainly did. First time doing this event on Saturday. Absolutely loved it made even more special by the snow. Great bunch of peeps and atmosphere which made the whole muddy hilly ordeal thoroughly enjoyable the sunshine was a lovely extra, please preorder more rays for next year's Mayhill Massacre
  • Did the 9mi Mayhil Massacre - SAT in 2019

    Amazing run with a two mile tough climb at the start, undulating for the next 6 miles and then a big climb to finish. Fabulous medal fantastic route and lovely marshalls
  • Did the 9mi Mayhil Massacre - SAT in 2019

    Great experience albeit a beast, upgrade to the 15 mile course in 2020. Have a go even if you simply stroll the course and enjoy the views.
  • Did the 9mi in 2018

    Second year of doing this event and pleased to see my time drop. Looking forward to the new 15 mile route next year - that will be brutal beyond belief.Highly recommended
  • Did the 9mi in 2018
