I have entered this event for the last couple of years and both times have ran leg 3 (the longest leg). It's mainly off road running through a mix of wet muddy fields and harder off road gravel, so trail shoes are definitely advisable. It's pretty well signposted however a couple of people went wrong at the farm where you are supposed to continue along the river rather than follow the track so make sure that you read the stage instructions pre race and that they are clear in your mind. The last couple of miles is on tarmac so you can really smash it for a quick finish.

Ran leg 4 two consecutive years (2013 and 14) and loved it (except the weather). I'd say trail/off-road shoes are helpful as it gets deep n muddy and slippery in places but a good few miles are on road too. Signposting on the day is good but when a friend and I tried to do a recce two weeks prior to the event we got lost and literally stuck as maps on the website weren't great and certain paths aren't cleared that far in advance. We were literally stuck in the mud in a field because brambles had made the intended path unpassable (they were cleared for the race). The end of the leg is great with everyone cheering as you lap the rugby pitch for glory finish! Good atmosphere.
