    Absolutely loved this race, such great organisation with such a great route, beautiful location set within Bedgebury itself, all off road which was lovely, highly recommend as one of my favourites in the South East for sure, big thumbs up from me 👍

    Loved this half, it is a two lap course but the second lap is slightly different so it isn’t boring. It is beautiful and challenging with lovely trails. I found this course unexpectedly fast despite the terrain. I think it maybe because you have discs to really let go on the down hills. To one to get your teeth into. A must do race!

    Brilliantly organised, well marshalled and a superb medal! Such a stunning course too, those hills! Will enter again in 2019!

    As always first class race organisation by the friendly Nicework team. The course was in a beautiful setting offering both challenge & atmosphere.

    Bedgebury is a beautiful location and an amazing place to visit the best of times, but to run a half marathon around forest gave me a new appreciation for the location. The event was really well managed with plenty of (v excited) marshals, clear instructions leading up and on the race day from Nice Work (as always). Overall a cracking half.

    I did my first trail run at Bedgebury four years ago progressing from 10km to the half marathon and can honestly say they have been the very best runs of my life! Nature, hills, trees, mud, laughter, gravel, sweat and sunshine! What’s not to love ... I’m a serial returner and recommend others to do the same!

    I did this race with a good friend who completed 13 half marathons last year for charity and this was the final race. I would definitely recommend it, it’s a good one! Mud and hills are a bonus!
