I live in Crete but as I was visiting the uk I entered the 5k race as I do like a good trail run and had doe this one before.Great course - wet and muddy as it should beMy only disappointment was the lack of photos. It would have been nice to have someone on the finishing line taking photosBut thanks to all the organizers and marshals

It was great. Organisation was good. Only suggestion is to maybe avoid the cone 180 turn but that is just preference. Also I wonder if instead of 2 loop the 10k could have been a longer run in the forest.But it was a great experience dispite the mud and the rain
