Ran the Gatliff 50K 2018 event - my first Gatliff. A great day, every sort of mud possible on the course, a very relaxed and informal 'race' with a range of alternative distances available for runners, walkers and everyone in between. Bargain entry price covers snacks and lunch on the route, plus hot food at the finish. Friendly checkpoint helpers. A self-guided route following printed detailed instructions, so navigation not too hard (I carried a map, but didn't need it). Hope to be back next year.

This was my first ultra and I did this on 26-11-17. I decided not to wear a watch and to match my effort to where I was around the course. The day was cold and sunny and the route nicely hilly and entirely off road. I ran at a sedentary 10 minute mile pace and this was the right thing to do. When I got to 40 Km I wasn't tired and had a cheese and pickle sandwich and 2 cups of tea. I had found my kind of 'racing'. Me and my mate Kev finished strongly as it was getting dark- in 8 hr 16 minutes. It was a great day in scenic surroundings and I can't recommend it enough. You get soup and food at the end and entry on the day is £9. I'll be back
