What an amazing event, I ran this ran on its very first event, and if nobody would have said, I would not have known. It was so well organised. From the fantastic course design, that took in nearly every form of running surface , to the brilliant support at CPs, stunning medals and the free burger and coffee at the end. This race just kept ticking boxes. I would certainly recommend this race to anyone thinking of running 52mi.

The course was absolutely stunning and certainly exceeded my expectations. I had no idea Cheshire was so hilly. Whilst the hills were hard, they also brought a new challenge, tremendous views, great descents and an eventual drop to the canal and the 6 miles to the finish. GB Ultra's organisation was wonderful. Signposting the course was great, which can't be easy over such a vast course. The support from the aid stations was humbling (all that cake - sorry I felt too sick by mile 30 to eat it!). I definitely recommend it to all. The pain in my quads today (Monday) tells of a challenging yet very run-able course. The perfect goal to keep you motivated through the winter. Oh and the weather was incredible ... lucky as you like! Thank you very much GB Ultra!!! Dave McHale
