Did the race in 2022
The organisers were brilliant and such an excellent range of food drinks in the check points
Did the race in 2022
The whole organisation by TOP DAY EVENTS was spot on. The course was well marked and the 2 aid stations per lap were well stocked with all sorts of goodies. This was just how a trail event should be.
Did the race in 2022
I agree with the comments about the course and the signage. I had the route on my watch from previous years and without that I would have got lost. Basically I ran 9 miles solo, seeing only the single marshall at halfway and the 2 girls at the finish line. I did think that if I had tripped and hurt myself then who would i call (no phone signal) or how long would I have to wait to be found?I loved it, but it does need better planning for the future.

I really enjoyed this event. Friendly staff on course and a well organised route. The medal was also nice and the event was definitely worth the entry fee 😊
Did the race in 2022
It was a brilliant trail run in the dark. It was just a shame that it was not better supported as the numbers running were low. The event deserves more support.
Did the race in 2022
It was amazing. The rain had done its worst but it was great trail
Did the race in 2022
Lack of communication prior to race. Hardly any atmosphere. Sign posting during event was shocking. Small ambiguous arrows throughout and not a marshal to be seen. Very dangerous if someone injured themself. Spoke to 3 others at the finish line and 3 out of 4 of us had fallen over during the race.
