Did the 40 Mile in 2021
The support crew were lovely with an interesting choice of snacks and always helpful. Lovely scenery [in the daylight anyway], luckily more hills at the start so a little helpful. Really could have done with at least one toilet en route as 40 or 50 -ish miles is a long way without a decent bathroom break. Good facilities at the start and finish with a lovely hot meal and awesome medal!
Did the 50 Mile in 2021
Lovely friendly atmosphere - well signed, lovely course. Thank you to all the crew and race director.

Hi, How tough is the cut off for a novice? What is the total elevation of the race?
Rich Roberts
I've walked the Test Way in under 14 hours, not as part of this race just as a walk - so if you are running any of it 14 hours should be easy (ish).
