Needed some clearer communication from the organisers in the lead up-to the event, and parking needed better organising considering there had been rain recently and the field had a significant gradient.Otherwise it was a great course, plenty of water and snacks, and super friendly and enjoyable.

Very well laid out, especially considering runs from all the events we’re on the course at once

Conflicting emails before the race saying time changed and changed back. Unclear what time it started so I made sure i turned up in time for 11. It was Infact 11:30. Road shoes were advised in email . Luckily I bought trail shoes as those were needed for sure! Missed run brief as no one alerted us it was happening. The finish was horrendous. Unclear really where it was and people were stood in the finish funnel choosing cakes. No encouragement as passing over finish. Unclear where burgers were after. No water available after run unless you paid for a bottle at the pub. Man behind bar grumpy and not friendly. Shouldn’t have had to pay as much as £3 for car park. Too steep. The run itself was nice but over all a disappointing experience.

I ran the half marathon, it was a very scenic but tough course. Very muddy and some killer hills. The event was very friendly and really well organised. I will definitely be attending another It's Grim Up North event in the future.

The wooden walkway could be dangerous, as broken. Easy registration. Nice goodies and quality medal once finished.

An unmissable 4 lap route through Roche Abbey and surrounding estate. The constantly changing beautiful scenery and wild life habitats; amazing number of wild flowers including orchids and the frequent refuelling points kept me going well. Don't miss it.
