A brilliant event and race from start to finish. This is the second year that I have competed in this event , and it was even better than last year , and I am sure it will improve and gain in popularity in the years ahead. The only "improvement advice" i can offer , is for improved signage at a couple of key points where several runners went wrong ( so it wasnt just one !!) . These are at Carbis Bay , at the very bottom of Wheal Margery , where a few runners missed the St.Michaels Way sign and kept going towards St.Ives. The other place is at the top of the lane leading down to Bowlrock Chapel ( where the very badly parked car is located ). Several runners (including myself) went past the stile in the corner of the field that leads into the lane and down to the very badly parked car , and kept going into a very large steeply sloping field. Improved signage at this point would definitely help , though I personally accept my own navigational error , and recognise the fact that i was given a map , and it is a trail race ( rather than a road race !! ). Overall ; Ford Sen Mighal is a fantastic event , that I will be very keen to enter again next year. Everyone i know thoroughly enjoyed the race , and i thought that the after-race food and drink laid on for us at the Station House was superb !! Hats off to you David , and I will be back for a third time in 2018 !!

Thank you Paul. I agree looking back that the signage at Bowl Rock could have been improved. However at Wheal Margery the marshals there saw a disgruntled lady remove the signage and throw it all over a hedge. I'm glad you had an overall great experience and I'm looking forward to seeing you again for hopefully the 3rd year
