So why should you put your trust in us? Our starting point is always ‘would we like to take part in this event?’ If it’s a yes, we develop the initial concept into a planning and engagement phase to make sure we can do what we think we can and that others will like what we like. By the time we get to race day, we have a dedicated team of people with a shared vision of exceptional athlete care and event delivery embracing equally both beginners and experienced athletes to our event experience. We know the stuff you see is important; quality event marshals, plenty of clear signage, detailed and accurate event information, well stocked feed stations, an amazing finish line experience and great event mementos. But sometimes it’s what you don’t see that’s the most important part of delivering an exceptional event; competent event build and de-rig teams, traffic management plans and teams, local community engagement, exceptional first aid provision, appropriate support teams (bike mechanics, sweep vehicles, water safety, race control and event officials) along with strong partnerships with key stakeholders and local community groups. Over the last 18 years we have delivered a lot of events, including pool based triathlons, open water triathlons at all official distances, trail runs, road runs, cyclosportives, kids triathlons, experiential events and duathlons lerning a lot over this time. I’m pleased to say we are still learning and continue to evolve our events, giving athletes an even greater experience. We look forward to sharing one of them with you soon.

The first 5 miles is the toughest, you double back on yourself, but beautiful coastline views. Pretty flat. Really well organised and the marshals were fab! Definitely will be running again next time

Really well organised and felt very safe. Good atmosphere- course was great, but could’ve done with the hills near mile eight to be at the beginning of the race instead of near the end as in the heat they were killer! Had a great time and overall really enjoyed it.

Well organised, marshalled and signposted, the only slight issue was the start at the back of the pavilion we could not hear the PA to know how to line up - only a problem during Covid! The atmosphere was great and the crowds were amazing, and I would definitely do this event again.

Excellent race. Organisation was faultless. Lots of marshals. Mainly flat with a couple of short sharp hills. One of the best organised races I’ve done, and a beautiful medal. Well worth it.

Mainly very flat with a couple of short, but steep, hills. Good PB course. Great finish area with a great sprint finish opportunity.

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
The course could have been better. Its certainly not flat! The finish layout in 2019 was as if they ran out of space and had to quickly fit in the last 100m. The first half is good, then as soon as it heads out of town, it loses its appeal. Im sure it could be made better. Other than that, the medal is great and the volunteers/marshals are very supportive. Spectators are also very good, due to the layout though, they are quite sporadic.

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Really enjoyed the race. Most of the course really attractive and good variety but was a little devalued by up and down stretches. These always feel frustrating and while most of the course was far more attractive than most road races there was a higher proportion of up and back. Generally organisation was good, more space for end of race area, not sure if that is possible but it felt a little chaotic and cramped. Having Pavillion as a centre at the start (to shelter from the weather, get a coffee etc) was great. Marshals were absolutely brilliant, enthusiastic and encouraging. Atmosphere for a race of this size was excellent and I really enjoyed the experience.
