    I have to say I disagree with the previous reviewer (Al Y). The runners were organised into clear waves according to distance, and each wave was called to the start line where they received TWO full race briefings. The first was from the race organiser, who gave clear instructions about the route, the conditions, issues to be aware of/look out for, marshalling points, first aid, water/feed stations and what to expect at the finish line. The second briefing was from the Chip Timing company, giving details about distance changes/chip location/ chip removal at the finish line.Each wave was started 10 minutes apart to prevent congestion along the route. Being a trail run there were areas where the route was a little slippery (we were warned before the race that an unexpectedly large rainfall the night before had caused this, and as a result one part of the route had been altered for safety reasons. A trail run in the winter is NEVER going to be either bone dry or easy, but if it had been as bad as Al Y suggests then out of such a large number of runners you'd have expected at least one person to end up injured, but nobody ended up either hurt or in the canal.After I finished, I was greeted at the finish line with my medal, plenty of water, a mountain of mince pies and my choice of free prosecco or a cold beer. The atmosphere was great, and I stayed around for a good couple hours afterwards chatting with other runners. It was a great day - thanks to the team for putting it together.The results were up on the internet the same afternoon.

    Very poor Marshall's. We were sent over a railway as the amber lights were flashing, warning pedestrians of an incoming train. At the start/finish a bull horn wasn't in use and runners struggled to here which race was bring started. Very very slippery leafs only feet from the canal, it's a miracle nobody fell in.
