Nice people, course was very poorly signed almost all the half marathoners went wrong and ended up finishing at the same time as the 10ks

Very tough trail run (stretches of technical trail and deep mud) through beautiful course. I did the half marathon distance which took me 3 hours rather than my usual 2 because of the nature of the course

Grim runs are always fantastic: the friendliest people organise it , with the best treats the end and the running atmosphere is the best! Even though I am broken after the hardest run I’ve ever done!
