It was a tough 8 lap course in a beautiful forest. At each lap we were able to help ourselves to a wonderful spread of sweet and savoury nibbles an a range of cold drinks. The marshals were very supportive. I would recommend ZigZag Running to everyone. We were very well looked after. Instructions on getting to the venue were accurate,that takes the panic out of the early morning travel.

Brilliantly organised. Good facilities. Well marshaled. Good directions in the course. Good snacks! Free coffee and cake. Love the medal. The only downside was that the course was so tough.
