This is only going to get better!

I was really disappointed to miss the inaugural Cathedral to Castle Run, luckily I managed to get a place this year.

The 10 mile multi-terrain run started near Lichfield Cathedral and ended in the grounds of Tamworth Castle. 

The event was well organised and the marshalls on the day were superb. The queues for the bag drop and the toilets at the start looked a little lenghty. The race organisers have promised to improve things in 2019.

The local support in Lichfield was a little limited, however, the support in Tamworth was spot on.

If you enjoy multi-terrain courses then I can guarantee you'll love the section through Hopwas Woods. The hill was epic and my knee is still recovering.

The plastic medal and the goody bag were both a little disappointing. However, the technical t-shirt and free race photo downloads made the race good value for money.

The race organisers have already listened to feedback and have promised a better medal in 2019.
