Out of May hundred events I’ve ran, I’d positively say that it is the most friendly atmosphere I’ve experienced and I’ll definitely be back because of that. Marshall’s are so helpful and the route was great too.

Tough 10k race but got a great sense of achievement when I finished. The trail section was tricky and slippery, but for my 1st taste of trail it was 'enjoyable'.
