Route great, well marked, helpers brilliant. Food choice v poor, would expect savory, fruit, cakes alongside what provided. Should be checking numbers of runners through each aid station, if someone injured or not come in you wouldn't have clue where they are.

Did the half which was absolutely fab! great atmosphere very well organised and a great goody bag at the end. I was just disappointed with the t-shirt I purchased I thought it might have had details of the event on it. If I had known it was just a general one I wouldn't have purchased it.

The course was perfectly marked out and organisation at the start/end was great. The location and route we a great mix terrain which kept me motivated all the way round as well as the very well stocked checkpoints. My only 2 issues were: With the sponsors being Man Cave, the goodie bag at the end was very centred around male entrants. Finally, the lack of toilets at check points would be an issue for any runners not wanting to use the toilet in nature.
