Did the 10k in 2021
This was a great first trail run for me. I felt supported and encouraged all the way and there was no time pressure. The course was well marked, and runners were well spread out with staggered start times. Although it ended up being longer than 10km, I’m glad I didn’t go for the offered option of down-sizing to 5km. It was lovely to see some very happy cannicross partnerships. ```On the development side, I would have liked the option of having the same start time as my running partner and, given a mandatory kit list (and the recent disastrous running event in China), a bit more checking of kits may have been wise - there was a lot of variation. See you next year!
