This was a fantastically well run (excuse the pun) event. The organisers were very friendly and the options of cake at the end were phenomenal! The event had a very welcoming vibe and I will certainly be looking to complete further events with Zig Zag running!
Did the race in 2022
Did 8 laps of approximately 3.3 miles… after the hill the rain made approximately 1 mile of it rather slippery underfoot… as a trail runner I loved it and just ran through the middle… great location, lovely scenery and all the support team friendly and helpful… I rather like these 6 hour races..

Did the race in 2022
Very well organised, lovely touch to have the cake and coffee afterwards, only downside was the mud but that was out of anyone's control. Thank you for a really enjoyable morning!
