Loved it apart from the final 2km. It felt so long 🤣But it delivered mud, rain and a lovely mince pie and mulled wine afterwards.The portaloos were in good condition too

Character building event due to the wind and rain and the mud.

Great race from start to finish. All the information prior to the race highlighted that the course could be muddy and challenging and with lots of rain that was certainly the case! The atmosphere was great despite the weather doing its best to dampen the mood. The course was very challenging at times with lots of mud but the river crossings give you the opportunity to clean your shoes! This is a fantastic race and I will definitely be doing it again.

Had a great time on the 10km. It was the first time I have done this event. The only thing that left a small question in my mind as I came away afterwards was that there seemed to be a lot of time spent on the road for a trail run.
