Great day, a tough route but lovely scenery. Thank you for organising.
Did the race in 2022
Very hard lots off hills
Did the race in 2022
Very enjoyable, would benefit from more markings leading to the car park as it was very difficult to find!
Did the race in 2021
Second time of doing it in 2021 and as always great organisation. Found it easy to find the start/finish location, a great atmosphere with the last stand in the forest and a great idea for the 5 and 10 milers. Well done again
Did the race in 2021
An important Remembrance Day run for many people. Poor directions to the Car Park - simply saying turn right before the Visitor Centre isn't helpful when the visitor centre is half a mile further on down a hill and out of sight. A small flag, notice or Marshall at that junction would have helped. There was some confusion about where to be for the two minutes silence and Last Post. We were in the right place but many weren't. As I was the final runner it was quite intimidating to have the sweepers on a bike and in car so close to me as I struggled over the last few miles. Great scenery, but not so great organisation our group felt. I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to, unlikely to return.

My good friend can't do the race due to injuries, could I run in her place? I will fill all my emergency details in on the reverse of the number. I am fit and more than comfortable to do the distance. Thank you Davey
