Great first trail run experience for me- fun atmosphere, great outfits, well signposted. Lovely mince pie muffins at the end too.

Despite the small numbers a thoroughly enjoyable run as always.

Less runners than previous years, made the event a lot friendlier
Did the race in 2021
Wanted a refund really as last year the date was moved at the last minute. Refund was refused. Only knew I’d been entered into this years race when I got an email 2 weeks ago. Route was good. medal and mince pie muffins were nice. Hardly any runners, kids race was cancelled. Stupid doing a Christmas run after Christmas. Timing wasn’t working - will be avoiding ‘Let’s do this’ in future - Let’s not bother.

Did the race in 2019
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.
