More toilets needed at start but organisers were aware of problem and adapted times.

I really enjoyed the the running. The course was challenging. Needed more toilets on site. And a couple of my friends and other runners went the wrong way at a point where it should have had a marshal or sign.But that’s the only negative from a fantastic morning. Will be back next year

I did enjoy the race, however I do think there were some areas for improvement, I hope the below comes off as constructive as that is what I hope it to be.You needed more than 2 toiletsIt would have been better to have some sort of funnel at the start/finish line to separate those running the 20k so they had a clear line through as people were milling about all over the finish line and those of us doing the 20 had to shout for people to move.Water should have been available at the start line (midway point) for those running the 20k (I think something was set up, but it was not available) It might have made more sense for the 20k to start first as by the time we came around to the finish the crowd had mostly leftI felt the route marking was great and the marshals were very encouraging/friendlySome sort of food van would have been good for the spectators, this was mentioned in the email ahead of the race but there was nothing there on the day.I hope these comments are useful, and thanks for a fun Sunday morning.

First trail race and I really enjoyed it. Course was definitely challenging - perhaps would have been helpful to have the course route available in advance so we knew what we were letting ourselves in for!

Fantastic run, just a same this avant was on at the same time as Llangollen trail run which possibly could of given your run more runners.Definitely you need to advertise better, hardly seen any adverts.

Enjoyed the run, good conditions.Would have been better to start the 20k first as the 5k were starting to come in before we left and most people had left when the 20k runners came in.
