Absolutely fantastic atmosphere only criticism is that it was short of a full half marathon and I can’t find the results!Also I do think you should have age categories for first second and third Many thanks for a fabulous run

Enjoyed the course, some of the directions on the way down the big hill were confusing and nearly ended up getting lost, so a few more stewards may have helped? But all in all it was a good route and a good race. Will run it again.

I didn't receive any emails with race pack or number details and I haven't had my chip time either. Luckily friends sent me the info and my number was there on the day. Maybe because I didn't book direct?Someone tampered with signs so the first few runners ran shorter than the rest but even the corrected course was not 13.1 miles, only about 12.3 miles. It was my first trail run so I wasn't too bothered but I know others that were.

It was very hard lots of hills to climb not run .narrow paths but a challenge worth doing for the views need a few more marshals in some of the areas where a little unsafe due to the course
