I did my first Relish run today, and also my first off-road race,
and I just wanted to say thanks for putting on such a friendly, well
organised, fun (is that the right word for THAT hill?!) race. I'll
definitely be trying a few more off road runs in the future after this. I
only started running this January, so I'm pretty new to it all, but am
finding running so rewarding. Even if my thighs hurt right now!!
See you on the 27th for the next 10k.

As is always the case with Relish races, I really enjoyed today! Haven't run for a few weeks due to a busy schedule and almost didn't come out but I am so glad I did :)
Also decided to wear shorts, lost a shoe in the mud and then slipped a second or two after putting my shoe back on. Good times!

We took part in the event on Sunday
and GREATLY enjoyed it. For Mark Calverley, my other half, it was the
first timed 10K race, and for me it was the second. Speaking for myself,
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it, including weather! It was very
well organised, carefully managed, offering full and enriching views
and experiences (I never ran off road before and now I do not want to
run on road anymore!). I enjoyed seeing cows, sheep and having to think
about the ground beneath my feet. Overall, it was the first of many (I
am sure) great Relish outdoor races for me!

Roman 10k was great by the way. Fairly new to trail races, so each one
is a bit of an adventure, but good course, good organisation and a
lovely atmosphere on the Roman 10k.
The scenery was amazing. There were also lots of lovely locals on
walks/cycles on the way who were very friendly, giving out high five and
lots of encouragement! 10/10. Rob Helsop
I loved the hills, the decents, the mud, the different running surfaces
and the views. I'm not a fan of road running and the terain & views
are what makes it for me.
The views, the fact it wasn't actually too bad underfoot, well signposted, good variety.
The different terrains - slippery grass, hills, mud and narrow paths
these really tested my fitness and motivated me to do more I found it
difficult in lots of places but came away with such a sense of
achievement. Thank you.
Fantastic atmosphere and great encouragement from other racers and
bystanders, especially near the finish line when I really needed it!
Beautiful scenery too.
The views - the course - being off road - good start to enable everyone to spread out - I like the medal - well marshalled
