Did the race in 2022
A great run in an amazing area. Would definitely take part again. The course marking was pretty good one exception was at the 3.1 mile mark many people turned left here in confusion at the farm losing 1/2 mile of the course.Otherwise a great run.Clive
Did the race in 2022
Course poorly marked resulted in losing a kilometre and ending up on the shorter route.Badly organised. Race times are impossible to findNice views
Did the race in 2022
Was a really good event, thoroughly enjoyed. However, you need to have more glow sticks or reflective arrows / reflective stakes and helpers giving guidance. I ended up running 7.6km, taking a wrong turn back onto the 5km course. Frustrating as I was within the top 5, but will have to come back next year to try again.
