I did the 10km obstacle course races. I've never received my medal and found them to be vague about it. I don't believe I will ever receive it either. I wouldn't mind if they offered 20% off next race or a token gesture. They seem to have quietly ducked out of fulfilling their promise.

A really good event which I hadn’t competed in before. We’ll organised, loads of parking and portaloo’s without a queue! I’d definitely recommend this event.

Organisation is possibly near the worst I've come across. Number pick up and parking was fine. Marshalling and directional signs need a lot of work on. Yes lots of directional signs but not really placed in the right places and there were plenty of points that they should of had marshalls at. Where they didn't have marshalls then tape should have been used as i did see some people go totally the wrong way and some cutting corners as arrows were not clearly in view and tape should have been there.No medal either as stuck in China and i believe that they will not be sent out.At the finish a girl possibly younger than 12 was handing out bananas and water the best she could, bless her. Had to ask about the free shirt also as they were set back and there was no encouragement to actually receive one.I marshal at many races and this organisation should take advice from other established companies.It's not a race that i will participate in again

It was really well organised with super friendly marshalls. The course was beautiful on the whole although it seemed as if there were quite a few ‘back and forth’ moments and I didn’t enjoy running through the rubbish pile twice! Otherwise a great event. Thank you.
