Challenging but the views were worth it. Be prepared for puddles and mud, if it has rained a lot before race day!

Great race, never ran it before so glad it’s returned! Very well sign posted and happy with the no cups policy. Would’ve liked some jelly babies , bananas or cakes at the feed station like Some of the other we’ll known trail races of similar distances! Will be back next year for sure!

Well sign posted, beautifal scenery but towards the end we didn't know how long to go if I had been informed I might not have given up so early. Take some jellies or protein with you x

Fantastic event with a wonderful atmosphere. Stunning views and surroundings with lovely, helpful volunteers and organisation. Only comment would be the size of some of the gaps in the walls were a bit of a squeeze :)
