It was a struggle but very challenging!

Overall was fine - thought the course was pretty dull considering we were in the New Forest, would have been nice to actually see the new forest rather than running on gravel tracks in a forest. I'm sure it's more exciting if you live in a city but I live in a rural area so I would have liked to see some of the things the New Forest is famous for.

Great course and atmosphere. Would have liked to see another food stalls (a smoothie option for example not just red bull and cheese toasties). Otherwise, a really great run, well signed and great marshals too :)

The signage and marshalling was poor so a number of front runners went the wrong way. I ran 13.9 miles rather than 13.1! This had an impact on position of runners

Disappointing experience. I was part of a lead group of 8 that followed signs and ended up doing an extra 2k. Why was there no marshall on this key junction? There were only 2 drinks stations not 3 as advertised - 1 was at around half way and the other too near the finish. No cereal bar and pair of socks at the finish as advertised. To cap it all off just received results and neither my wife or myself are included. Shame as nice course, venue and atmosphere. Expect a lot more for nearly £50 entry!

A key sign or Marshal was missing causing the top 10 runners to run an extra 2km at the start of the race. Consequently you then had the entire heard of race runners to negotiate for the remainder of the race; race times and positions became redundant. Race organiser was apologetic but felt a free entry to the next race/event should of been offered. Compared to other races attended across the country the event didn’t seem particularly friendly.

A fabulous course and the organisation on point. Didn’t quite feel the same amount of atmosphere as the Hinton Admiral course I did in March but maybe due to the limited space. Would still do this again though!

Not enough Marshalls or water stations. More Marshalls could have avoided hundreds of runners missing a key turn at the start and running a fair extra distance. The length of the course also requires more water stations, in my opinion. Would only need one or two more. It was otherwise a good course and the start/finish being at the campsite made parking straight forward.

Marshal wasn’t in position so front pack went in the wrong direction. Ended up running just below 15miles. With high entry fee, I’d expect better organisation. I would like a full refund and I don’t want credit for another event.

Did the race in 2022
Was a realy good hard off road route. Only criticisms is that there wasn't any running socks or sports bars when we finished (nonone had then) and they were a part of packs at the end of the race. Could have done with a couple more stands selling food and drink for before and after. Staff were amazing and friendly
