Did the 50k in 2022
Was a bit let down by the checkpoint offering at the stations and the end of the event. Needed a bit more navigation. Lots getting lost.

Did the 50k in 2022
The organisation was shocking maybe 1 sign throughout the hole course giving direction navigation was left completely to everyone's own devices whilst this may seem fine for people who aren't experienced in navigation this is a disaster. Second thing was the aim stations where an absolute joke gels and refillable camping water storage tubs was all they had bare one station where they went all out and put some flap Jack's out. No sugar drinks or any other accommodating food what so ever. Third thing the organiser wasn't even at the finish line to congratulate everyone finishing. And present them with there medal Forth thing the medals them selves where cheap peices of ply wood on a bit of ribbon. All in all very disappointed with the hole thing to spend £45 on this event I think is absolute day light robbery the owner must have made a killing
