    MacTuff is like a family. Alex, Marnie and the crew are always friendly and helpful and go the extra mile. Since I turned up to my first MacTuff training day in 2016 I've always been made to feel welcome, got an enthusiastic hello whenever I've seen them halfway round the course at other events around the country, and felt valued and supported when running MacTuff itself. The atmosphere at their events is always really friendly, the course is very challenging (that quarry gets damn cold in the heights of the Scottish winter) , the obstacles are great fun and with some really unusual ones (thinking of the car pull and American football squad in particular), the marshalling is great (big props to the civvies but especially to the squaddies that are always there), parking's free and easy, and it's generally like how a certain other event near Birmingham would be if it was run with competence rather than negligence, and with the obstacles spread over the course so there's no heartbreakingly boringly long running sections! An absolutely brilliant way to start each January.

    the MacTuff group are a real friendly crowd. Parking at no extra cost, good access. Come along and meet the gang. I've felt very welcome since running at MacTuff. The obstacles are challenging, yea some tough ones ,but also some fun ones.

    100% well worth the trip from NI just to race. Well organised, fablous fun, tough wee course but we'll worth the effort. A number off us made the trip last year, its now been added to the annual trip. List, like Nutts, looking forward to January 2020, will also be returning with the kids for kids race.

    First ever OCR (15k wasn’t my idea!) but I loved it. Didn’t prepare AT ALL physically and found certain points challenging but a well organised event. Felt the drinking water points (plenty of NON consumable water throughout the course.. mainly mud) could have been spread out a bit better (seemed forever in to the course and then in close succession).

    A great welcoming team atmosphere and for a newbie, I’m seriously considering my next MacTuff return.

    If you want tough this is for you. Challenging course, gruelling at times, good obstacles and a serious jump into freezing water after mud submersion mean this is not for the faint hearted. Friendly marshall’s and a proper nice medal. All competitors names on T-shirt a nice touch. My only suggestion would be to separate the start for the competitive runners and ensure they’re visible to the marshals, and enforce the penalties for this group. Atmosphere was really special can’t wait to come back. Thanks for a great event.
