This is my third time to take part in this event. It is just as enjoyable each time. The marshalls are supportive and cheer you on to keep your enthusiasm going. It is well organised and you never feel as if you should not be there because you are not a fast runner. All the other competitors give you a cheer and encouragement as they run with you or pass you. Look forward to the next one. Come on...let's do it!!

Very pretty & interesting course in lots of places but I’ve marked down as there were a few bits of the course that we’re repeated. Atmosphere was good but not as good as previous tough runner runs/races. Organisation as good as ever

I’ve only done 3 races so far, and this was by far the best mainly because of the course, challenging but really stunning and great fun!

More tshirts. Better signs to and from coach for park and ride. More distance markers. Marshals were the bestest ever thanks so much to them for keeping the atmosphere buzzing along the way.
