Did the race in 2019
I entered the half marathon but found the course had long climbs that were pretty tiring. I also had a problem with a nagging Achilles heel pain so I opted out after the first of two laps and completed the 10k instead. Organisers very happy to make this change. My only gripe was that they claim they are running a 10k event but actually they are instead running a quarter marathon - hence the length is over half a kilometre over a measured 10k. It just makes it impossible to make a comparison between other 10k runs and this one. They admit to a lack of a provision of loos and long queuing to register was a pain. Good that parking is free. Lovely location and friendly event.

Hi. What kind of footwear is recommended? Trail running shoes? Or would it be easy enough to use the same trainers I use on the road? Thanks

Hey there, just to let you know that the Forest of Dean Running Festival course doesn't require trail shoes as it is general easy terrain. My recommendation would be to were whatever is most comfortable. All the best!
