Fantastic venue, well marked route, last minute change of start point but luckily I saw the email the day before, one very welcome stop with water and jelly babies :-) I'd do it again for sure

Great challenging course and one I would definitely enter again. Was no marshals on course though if someone was to have an accident. Race briefing was about 20 seconds long and couldn't hear the person very well. On the positives it was a great value race in a brilliant location.

Really enjoyable race & completely inclusive. I ran with a friend who was competing her first ever running event & it was brilliant and she felt so supported

The only small criticism is the start line announcements could not be heard where we were, just over half way back as people were making to much noise, if they asked for quiet before continuing with the announcements that would be better.

Sign to event on main road, maybe more signs or marshals on route as I ran on own nearly all way due to some going off route 👍
