Race Reports & Tweets:


Nick Thomas (2013): ‘This race is more mental than physical and I’d been rightly exposed.’


Antonia Johnson (2012): ‘Sometimes I hug people as I walk past. There are many of us walking. I’m crying again.’


JuraRunning (2014): ‘It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, deserved more respect than I gave it, and was absolutely bloody brilliant..’


Jon Fielden (2015): ‘There was so much positivity, support and camaraderie from everyone involved and I absolutely loved it. The event had such a low key, chilled out atmosphere to it that really worked. You could tell that it was an absolute labour of love for the organisers and the volunteers.’
