Amazing race, first 10K at Bewl Water, loved every minute of it, come on down and do it. I did the 10K, it was hot. Simon P

Bewl Water is a fantastic place to run around .. Event well organised. Claire G
Once the race started I really enjoyed it, it was 90% on trails and some small road sections. Lovely downhill stretch to the finish and a great medal. Mark H
Second year for me and thoroughly enjoyed it once again. The course is around the beautiful Bewl water reservoir venturing onto some of the small roads where the track leaves the reservoir. It is a very tough course in my view as not as flat as you might think, the hills are mostly in the last quarter of the run, just when your legs are tired. Feed stations are plentiful with a good section of fluids and snacks. Would I do it again, definitely! Julian C
