Did this race last weekend - as well as the 40 miler advertised here there is also an 80 mile race which I did, this started at midnight and running into the day rather than the night seemed much easier and less exhausting - I did manage to get a couple of hours sleep prior to the race. The course was first of all on the coast path and then through a woods. The course had a lot of variety; in the dark for the first 40 miles then repeated in daylight to make up the 80 miles - a simple course so you couldn't get lost; spooky in places -running past a graveyard on my own at 3am - a highlight was - meeting the parkrun runners at 9am when I had already run nearly 2 marathons that morning and them all shouting words of encouragement. The marshals were very friendly and offered lots of encouragement and help despite having to stand n the rain for hours. if you want a small friendly personal race this would be for you.

If you are looking for a race with the personal touch, great camaraderie, excellent organisation in, if the weather is kind to you, a beautiful location then this is the race for you! If you want a race with marquees, a massive runners village and cheering crowds then perhaps this isn't the race for you! Even though the weather was cruel in 2015, I did in a strange way really enjoy it, well apart from the hill that goes up in whatever direction you run!!
