Something a bit different for January

A challenging course - don’t underestimate it. And muddy much muddy. But fun. And different.

Can’t see the attraction?

No, me neither. Until I experienced it, flat, fast, a really cool distance to race with a great great long sleeve t shirt. Getting a place is a nightmare though.

Fab challenging route

Tgis was my first trail half marathon and I really loved it. Tough climbs but tougher downhills and a beautiful route. Good comradery from other runners and a really varied field. 

It was a bit odd at the start as the marshalls apparently weren’t all in place at the event start time so there was a fair delay without much explanation but these things happen and I’d rather the marshalls we’re safely out on course. 

Finishers t shirt and medal were good quality. Probably on the more expensive side for a trail event but I thought justified. 

Despite the sponsorship, no HOKA gear though which was a bit disappointing! There were visors for the winners but I find this frustrating as there are some people who are NEVER going to win so I think a better way of distributing these would be nice. I would recommend this event.
