Great fun from beginning to end. The atmosphere provided by Barnes Fitness was superb and really got all of us runners in the mood. The course was well devised, despite a last minute change due to the snowy conditions the week before. The course entailed a lot of mud, flooded meadows, a few gates, a staircase, a beach and numerous tree branches. All of these made the course extremely fun to run - there's always a new challenge around each bend. From what I experienced, all of the other runners were having a great time slipping, sliding and laughing all the way around. The support from the volunteers and event staff was tremendous - marshals were placed at all the right locations and provided motivation at just the right times. I mostly chose to run this as a bit of fun, but I even managed to put in a good time. The facilities on-site are great and it's a very scenic location. I was surprised there weren't more competitors to be honest. I'd highly recommend this run to everyone - whether you have X-trail running experience or not (I didn't, nor did I run with trail shoes and I managed to stay on my feet the whole way around).

Thoroughly enjoyable first Dinton X-Trail. Damp, cold and miserable in the car park but a bit of a buzz at the startline soon made that disappear. Nice flat course, but with a lot of varied terrain. Short sections of path/gravel, a couple of pedestrian bridges, few gates, many many fields (mostly waterlogged) and a short beach ! all made this a great run. 160 runners took part, but the race was never crowded and no waiting at all. The recent rain made for some interesting deep puddles and a lot of mud, so proper trail shoes was clearly the right choice. So overall, a great race and I look forward to a few more in the years to come.
