A few people got lost in the woods. Not sure if some are not still wandering about in there somewhere! 3 out of 4 of our family group took a wrong turn or, more correctly, failed to make a turn, and they were running independently so I think the way markers must have been inadequate. Certainly there were not enough Marshall’s on the route at all the hidden turns. Otherwise it was a great run and great fun despite the freezing rain.
