What an excellent race! Really well organised with staggers starts to help social distancing. The course was tough but the scenery more than made up for the hills. The marshalls were brilliant as well but don't trust them when they tell you "it's all down hill from here" because they're fibbing. Really enjoyed this race - thank you!

The only thing that I think could be improved is the way the prizes are awarded to the winners. It was all done in the doorway and no one could really hear or see properly what was going on. It should be made more of instead of half hearted.

..loved every minute of the race ( although it took me too many minutes to finish it - should have done better ) - from the reception in the o so quirky cricket-club-house, the scenic trail itself and right through to the finish...Well done and a thumbs up for the organisaton, marshalls & volunteers........You asked for constructive remarks so here is one : at the "watering-holes" single use plastic cups ? this day and age?........Really?.......

Very informal but well organised. The marshals were wonderfully supportive and created a great atmosphere despite the downpour.

This was a great race in a stunning location despite the horrendous weather the course was great. There were plenty of signs and stewards (Smiling despite the weather!!) so that you did not worry about getting lost.

It was a lovely run even though conditions were sadly dreadful, very wet. I would suggest there could be a slightly longer childrens race for those not quite able to do the 5k. Also slightly clearer finish post whether due to the weather but not so clear once rounding last 100 meters where one should go. My daughter who is 13 ran the 5k and came second, amazing experience in such lovely Sussex countryside!

I loved my first running experience... It was a tough challenging course but great fun! The weather didn't help as it was quite slippery on parts of the course.It would be really lovely next time to see some thought going into recycling and eco friendly alternatives with regards plastic plates and glasses etc, but overall it was very well organised.

Really nice route, will be even better to come back and do it another year when the sun is out! Marshall were all really enthusiastic despite having to stand in the pouring rain!
