This was an absolutely brilliant event. Really well organised and the atmosphere was great. The course was just challenging enough without being off putting for inexperienced runners like myself.

Another awesome event from Adrenaline Sporting Events. Course was a little longer than expected, but it was all for fun so not a massive issue, although the uphill final 1.5k hurt those of us that got a tad competitive in the early stages 😂Brilliant event, great cause, will 100% do it again 😁
