For me, this is the perfect kind of race: small, low key, flawlessly organised and lots of friendly people (both runners and helpers).
I did this in 2015 and will definitely do it again (if I get a place!).
Highly recommend bringing your own lap counter, as they can double up as a food and drink vendor, which means you don't even need to stop :)
5 stars.

Running around a track for 6 hours is really not that boring as there are plenty of people around and lots of opportunity for brief chats as you are lapping or being lapped. Really well organised with a snack table contain sweet and savoury as well as a variety of drinks. It is also possible to set up your own 'checkpoint' just outside the track so you could access your own food and drink when you wanted it. I ran the race in 2015

Ran the 12 hour race in 2015. A small, no-fuss and friendly event with a nice group of people of all levels out on the track. The 6 hour race starts 3 hours into the 12 hour one, which makes the track a little busier for a time but it's great to be out there sharing the space with people striving for PBs in both the 6 and 12 hour events.
