Really good course, challenging with all the hills!! Could do with some music at the beginning and a group warm up with your wave to get the atmosphere. The waves could do with being further apart time wise as the wait for the first few obstacles where long, which means there isn’t a lot of point providing time chips for people in the later waves. All in all was a fab day though

I absolutely loved every minute, mile and mud bath of this race! The course was challenging but could be accessed by all levels. Signing was clear and there were lots of race marshals to cheer you on and help out if needed. The obstacles were fantastic! Each had different levels of difficulty so everyone could succeed. Prepare yourself to get very muddy and wet and to laugh a lot! I cannot wait to book this for next year! I had an absolute blast!

Some of the obstacles I didn’t think we’re obstacles. Also I feel there should be more apparatus at one obstacle so the queues aren’t too long whilst waiting for your turn. Oh showers would be a good idea too. Overall a really good day. Thanks to everyone that organised it and volunteered.

Would advise against extra layers during race as once these get wet and caked in mud/ clay become very heavy! Also gloves because there is alot of army crawling through very cold mud and water. Your warmest clothes to change into after the event Is a must! Zip up jumpers would be easier to get into.

Cut my hand pretty badly steward at scene zero help. Steward at next obstacle hugely helpful despite having no first aid kit!!! (Why?!?!) she washed it, stopped the bleeding by taping me up and enabled me to continue. My daughter did the kids race though I missed it cos I was still running. My sister had to jump in a save her because the water obstacle was the deepest on the whole course. Also too much queuing at obstacles meant I was almost hyperthermic by the end. April not a good month for this sort of race! Other than all that it was great.

Great course. Great Marshalls. Really enjoyed it and had a great time. Occasionally had to queue for excessively long at some obstacles. Not clear where to put keys or how to collect them after, giving the ‘what3words’ sent me to the wrong place at first, then a 12 minute drive to the postcode, which was the right place thankfully but big panic. Not clear what wave was starting or when. No medals and the tshirt size id ordered wasn’t available. But other than that everything was brilliant.
