The course needed more water stations. It was a hot day.I hated the fact we had to carry cups.

Great course, couple of nice hills during it and excellent views. Nice to go through the railway tunnel at end.

I think that cups of water should be available at the water points. If the run was on a warmer day then a few runners would have been in trouble.

What a lovely and challenging race! This will for sure be one to remember. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The scenery was breathtaking, and I was tempted to stop and pet farm animals on the route. 10/10 would recommend.

My third start in Ashbourne half. And my worst time.... over 2 hrs. I wasn't well prepared. But this year half I will remember as the best one. Organisation best ever. Good idea with own cups for water. Peak District is our treasure. And At the end great part through the tunnel. Marshalls at crossings/crossroads were amazing. Definitely will come back next year with friends
