Thought there would be more people running the event as wasn’t much atmosphere. Think by doing lots of different race distances at the same time it didn’t seem to have that wow factor at the finish where people are around celebrating together

First trail run I've done and loved it. Although the route was hard for me lots of scenic views while running made it easier.

A little anxious going to my first organised run but the atmosphere was great and the route well marshalled and signed so no problems at all, I could just enjoy the run
