Thanks for a great race and to all the volunteers, especially those who made the cakes…. I’ve never needed to diet after a race before!!


Was a fabulous run! Soo well organised and really well marked even though you were in the middle of nowhere! Super friendly marshalls..and will be recommending this to my friends….well done! xx


Thanks to all the volunteers, these events couldn’t happen without them, and they were all smiling and offering bucket loads of encouragement, brilliant.
