  • Did the Ultra-Marathon in 2019

    A stunning course. Brilliantly marked so no need for navigation. . Friendly and supportive race organiser and Marshals . Can’t recommend it enough . The last 5 miles of the ultra we’re challenging but not enough to put me off. I’ll definitely be back next year
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    I have nothing wrong to say about the run. My issue is with Lets `Do It. The start time had always been published by Lets Do It as a 10 am start, this was not the case. I even had an email from Lets Do It the day before the race telling me it was 10 am.
    It was only because my wife is on FaceBook (I am not) that we found out that all the races that day were to start at 9am and this had been the case for a while. Thankfully that information allowed me to get there for a 9am start. Other runners were not so lucky and turned up in time for a 10am start. This is extremely poor from Lets Do It and wherever possible I will not use them to book another event.
