This is what you said in 2017:
As always a great race and the weather just made it hilarious!....
It was my first attempt at this race and despite the weather and those hills I still
managed a PB!
Dread to think what I look like in the photos though! I would love to do it again
next year, but can we have some sunshine please?!
Had a great time running this race, and will definatley be booking this next year,
it was a great race and very well organised.
Hello. This was my first time running your race and I loved it. Weather made it more
The race conditions brought back memories of the MK marathon back in 2012- dark,cloudy
and wet! But the feeling when you cross the finish line always makes it worth the
effort( skin is waterproof as my friends keep telling me!).
Thanks for putting on a great race, looking forward to next year for my third time
Was a great race- even if the weather did give us it in spades! Looking forwards
