‘My mule don’t like you laffin’

3:10 To St Ives

There weren’t no mules, donkeys or deputies here, but everyone a full on Sheriff with the presentation of an awesome, bona fide, Sheriffs badge at the end as the run medal! Superbly organised, well marshalled by an experienced possé, brilliant mutual support from other runners and the onlooking injuns! AND a lovely veggie pasty at the finish too! My favourite 5K ever!

Amazing and a must do!

The Madness Of King George II

What a great event, the inaugural Madness of King George was everything a coronation should be! Sunshine, smiles, laughter, regal participants and an amazing support cast led superbly by the crowning creators of some of the most stunning and imaginative endurance events the far West Country has to offer. If you are looking to be truly challenged emotionally, physically and spiritually then this is for you! This event will gain in popularity and will fast prove to be a must do event in your endurance calendar. Superbly organised, brilliantly marshalled and enthusiastically completed by all competitors, enter and be crowned a champion!

And what a champion you were Chris. The constant comments from you of, "this isn't hard enough" were testament to your strength in humour and ability to keep smiling throughout despite your niggles and pains. It was amazing to be able to hang a medal around your neck. It was truly deserved and you thoroughly earned my respect. Great stuff dude and I hope to see you soon. Thank you for the wonderful feedback and for helping make our tiny event a huge success. All the best Dave xx

Still the best start to Christmas!

The run is the ideal start to the wind down to Christmas. It has a great atmosphere, fun attitude and a course with nice variety with lots of support from spectators and fellow runners. Worthwhile for sure.
