Wonderfully unique race as it it multi-terrain.  3 races in one: canal path and road, woods and the muddy field.  Very well organised every year.

Absolutely superb event as always! I've done this race every year for a number of years now and it never disappoints. A great family feel event, great support and beautiful mixed terrain. Already want to book again for next year
