Did the Mayhill Massacre - Sunday in 2022
First time completing the Mayhill massacre and hopefully not my last!The incline/elevation went on what felt like forever and felt very challenging. The scenery was beautifulWell signposted and lots of water stations.As a solo runner taking on the 15 mile course it would have been nice to still have some course marshalls at the water stations for encouragement and incase of an injury
Did the Mayhill Massacre - Saturday in 2022
Very tough course but also very enjoyable - would definitely do it again! Roll on next year and let's hope the weather is just as perfect.
