Challenging

Any other notes?

Challenging but good. The hills were tough, but I remembered that those who fought/died in the wars faced tougher challenges, all I had to do was run up a hill so I shouldn’t complain!! Army guys near top of final hill helped with encouragement. Loved the event and will do again next year.

Any other notes?

We had a great time - the rain stopped, the clouds lifted and the stunning views appeared, Timeless were amazing and such a fitting warm-up!, marshals / organisers did a great job, very friendly event for all standard of runner, nice medal and a very tough hill at the finish to make you feel you earned it! well done to all involved!

Great event, thank you.

Any other notes?

An all-round great event, thank you.

Minor quibbles - 1 could do with more car parking (or a park-and-ride system) 2 could do with more toilets and more toilet servicing (toilet paper) 3 might be good to have boxes for collection of discarded water bottles.

It might also be nice to have a no-medal option, perhaps with reduced price or option to donate the extra. It was great to see no goody bags full of junk.

Thank you for a very good day.

Any other notes?

Would have been nice to have the singers in a large tent or on a stage in the cafe. I think with the rain threatening and the cold many people chose the warm and dry over watching the ladies singing, which was a shame. If the entertainment had been undercover, more would have watched I think. Otherwise, well organised. Amazing venue. Lovely medals. Good parking.

I thought this was really well organised, my only thought was that it wasn’t clear at the start which way the 5k was going and which way the 10k was going so some direction signs there would have been good.

Any other notes?

Well organised, challenging run, fun atmosphere with Timeless who set the scene and calmed pre-event nerves (could have done with being near(er) the cafe to capture more people but I can see the challenge with that). Great medal too! Thank you all so much, I'll be back next year :-)

Any other notes?

My first event with you guys and totally loved it despite really struggling out on the course at times due to carrying an injury. So well organised, great route markings, enthusiastic marshals the BEST warm up and good communication prior to the event. Thank you for all your efforts,
