My second year at Run Sandringham 24. A fantastic event with great camping for all the family. Anita B

Really supportive especially for solo runners. Jaffa cakes during the night was a life saver. Definitely do this one again! Karen S

This was my second year of doing this event and it’s a great way of challenging yourself on a 5mile loop through the beautiful Sandringham Estate that, despite doing it many times, never got dull. Brilliant friendly encouraging Marshall’s, a great compere, a great camping set up. Sarah F

Brilliant event, very well organised with fantastic marshall’s, volunteers and organisers. Helen C

Overall a great event from being marshalled to the camping area to the finish of the race, well marshalled throughout the race from start to finish. Everyone was very helpful and friendly throughout the weekend and look forward to coming back next year. Eamon T

An incredible community feel! An incredible event with an amazing atmosphere, even through the night. Can't praise the organisers enough for a fantastic weekend. Samantha F

Great venue, atmosphere, route and organisation! Fraser W

All those who took part felt very bonded together and united in our undertaking -- event village was very welcoming with an easy layout, aid stations were all flawless. All in all myself/ spectators had no negative comments and were very pleased with the event as we had not expecting such a great time! Joe B

I got roped into this event after a conversation with work friends about joining their running team... I needn't have worried, it turns out anyone that is a runner is lovely and so supportive and the marshals and event organisers were awesome. Cheering us all on what ever time of the day and night. Anna W

My first ever event of its kind super fun and challenging definitely doing it again can’t wait Organised very well. Karl G

We enjoyed meeting other racers and the support on the course from racers and marshall’s alike was fabulous! A terrific community bond. Selica L
