  • Did the Half Marathon (Sunday) in 2020

    Incredible value for money. Really well set up, easy to navigate with excellent marshals and signage on course.
    Very friendly atmosphere with honest, clear instructions from event organisers.
    Tough course for a half marathon with plenty of climbing along beautiful trails. Although a tough course and I'd also say it's great for beginners as you won't get lost and it's not an overwhelming number of participants. That said, there is every pace and ability out racing - all having a great time with a smile on their face and a hand shake to their competitors at the end - if you want a competitive race,you'll get that too with some real speed goats!
    For the cost, I didn't expect anything except a "get set go" but they overed water stations and snacks on course and at the end, everyone got a medal and there were even really nice trophies for those who podiumed / won age categories.
    Will definitely be back!
