"I really have no words that are positive enough to explain my experience. Fantastic just doesn’t even start to describe it." - Stephen McAuley, HEINEKEN Race to the Tower 2017 participant
"First class event! The route was marked out brilliantly, absolutely no confusion about where you were going. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, all with a smile on their face. I signed up to do the event on my own and I never felt alone at all. Thank you for a great experience. I can't walk now but it was definitely worth it!" - Louise de Ste Croix
"Toughest, most amazing, friendliest, best organised, incredible event I have ever done. Threshold and their partners were fantastic - everything was catered for - we just needed to concentrate on the running. I would recommend this to anyone - I cannot describe in words how I felt going across the finish line after an experience like that - just awesome (and knackered!!). Thanks Threshold and all who supported us. What an achievement!" - Jim Blackburn
