I really enjoyed this guided run. Jamie and Clare are great guides and made it a nice friendly easy going atmosphere. The pace was just right to take in the scenery and have the odd chat with people. This was my first event with First Light Active and I will definitely be going to others as they come up in the future. Thank you 🙏
