I do this race every year and love it! The “Wall” is brutal and I can never seem to run up it. This course is mostly fire roads and not too much muddy sections.

Well marshalled from the carpark to the course. Lovely people, lovely vibe and a stunning venue. 13.1 miles and 2000ft of climbing has never been so enjoyable.🥰

I can't honestly say this was value for money. You expect a lot when you sign up to an event with Hoka's name attached. Bit disappointed. There was no back marker running, which is inexcusable. I hung back with a friend to check she was ok. Various vehicles popped up on the way but she would have been totally alone for large parts and could easily have been injured or lost. Very off putting for those new to trail running. The use of plastic bottles at water stations is really inexcusable in 2022 as well. Felt like a money making race with no thought to the runner's experience

I really enjoyed the event yesterday. I thought it was well organised and the Marshall, Volunteers, etc we’re really friendly and helpful. I would definitely take part in the event again.

Having done this 3 times,I was disappointed that the event tshirt is now £22 when in 2019 it was £10. The medal in 2019 was awesome too.
