Did the race in 2022
This guided run was really fun, friendly, and tough! It was well organised by Matt and he had 3 other guides along to make sure no one got lost, and we took breaks often to catch our breath after big hills.I would highly recommend Matt's guided runs as you don't have to worry about mapping a course and you can just enjoy the run and chat with others in the group. One small thing I would change is having the start / end at the car park near the cafe / loos but otherwise it was perfect!
