New route is so so much better than previous. May have been forced by felling but keep it, maybe with some threading if possible to break up some of the extended fire road segments 👍👍

I was expecting more trail to be honest. The 5k course was mainly fire track and really hard going for me and my dog.Could do with a more organised staggered start instead of a free for all, which can be really stressful for some dogs and runners.£5 paking was extortionate, I understand over heads need to be met but the car park is normally free!
