Firstly the pre information said to bring along the ticket with the QR code on...never asked for on arrival or shown to anyone.Secondly, the event just seemed like a tack on to the main event, there was more enthusiasm and participation by the spectators than by the organisers. Lastly, no prizes or recognition for categories, many of the racers didn't have age categories, whether this wasn't asked for i can't remember. It just seemed - ahhh you've finished...bye bye...The course was great, lots of cheering from the main event spectators. I loved the way the course went in between the campers as much as possible. Shame about the rest.....

There was no medal or anything else provided at the end! i would like an explanation or partial refund for false advertising, please do not ignore this e-mail!!!

Had to give it 5 stars for everything because it was that good, loved the trails (even the uphills) it was my very 1st race so didn’t know what I was doing, but top class organisers helped me. And never being at a race event before it was so nice to get cheered on all around the course. Sign me up now for next year.
