Wonderful race, beautiful setting and super strange to essentially be led by hundreds of dogs. Basic but well organised run in a wonderful setting, highly recommend.

There’s always something that goes wrong at this event and I’ve done it 3 times. The results incorrect, wrong route, too short. Shame as a lovely venue.

My first canicross race, and Otto and I really enjoyed it. The start was a bit busy, but fine once you get going. I ran my best 5k in years! I will definitely enter this race again and highly recommend! Thank you.

The location and course is fantastic. A really friendly atmosphere too :) however the start of the race was not great as it was a bit of a free for all and just carnage. A way to solve this would be to have large time gaps between waves of runners or to have some sort of seeding so the faster runners can go first. Thank you to all of the volunteers that make the race possible!

It’s was so good to see all the dogs eager to get going! The course was well managed and signposted. It is hilly up until 3k and then it’s 2k of downhill. Such a beautiful place!

Really enjoyed myself although it seems like my chip didn’t work as I didn’t get a finish time (Justin Bateman, 10k).

The event was generally run well but the start was very chaotic. It might be worth for future events putting a marker up for where you want propel to congregate. It may also be worth putting people who are very serious in the front, there were a number of very difficult competitors trying to push their way through at the start which is not ideal when it's one of your first canicross races and the dogs are excited at the start so more likely to react than then would normally.

Really nice event, well organised. A real shame we had to leave the car park by 1pm as it would have been nice to stay and enjoy the bedgebury site afterwards. Parking for free for the day in the visitor centre would be ideal, or able to stay in walled garden until later in the day.
