It's a tough course which possibly seemed harder because of the hot weather . However, the location is brilliant and the organisers and marshalls were fantastic, really friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed rhe run, but doesn't have the street side supporters that I'm use to with my road runs (like the Manchester events).But as long as you know its a smaller event and trail I suppose you can accept that.All the marshal's seemed nice, even though they had been stood in the sun for 6+ hrs.I'll certainly sign up for more of your events, and maybe do this one again next year.

A well organised, friendly run. The course was tough in the heat as, there was no shade and I couldn’t imagine doing more than 2 laps. There is a long out and back section that goes on forever. The heat was the factor but after finishing, I really enjoyed it.
