We will be signing runners back in back in when they finish their run outside Denbies front entrance (by the marque). All runners will be issued with an NFC chip which will be used to sign in at the finish. They will swipe themselves in at the end and we will have a manual paperback system. We will be accounting for all of our runners with this new back-up policy. This applies to ALL runners. We will also have sweepers out on the course for all three distances

I hadn't done a trail race before, but felt like this one was slightly disorganised. 15 minutes delayed start to the race followed by queuing and at some points literally standing still waiting to get through gates (I don't know if this is normal for a trail race) really didn't let me get into my race pace. Confusion over the route for the last 500m (there was no signage) of the race also was very annoying as I initially went the wrong way. Also to note, my running app only clocked 9k when I was down to run the 10k race. I believe this all can be understood as race planning growing pains, and hopefully will be sorted out by next year.

Really lovely race. Great atmosphere, the location was awesome... A great mix of terrains. Only missing 1* because with about 1km to go the signage all but disappeared and basically everyone I spoke to got lost. The group I was in wandered through the car park and to the finish line which was a disappointing end to an otherwise flawless race. I would still race again.
