What our Entrants say?

"The Championships will be very entertaining for people to come and watch the world’s best in possibly optimum running conditions.It looks like it’s a good course as well.There’s very little climb in it and it’s a nice surface so the potential is there for some world-class distances to be set."
"My second year doing this event, 12hr race last and this year I came back for more. 24hr I just loved it. A big thank you to everyone for an amazing event. The support was unreal. As somebody said the track is a Theatre Of Dreams. It sure is, I came home with my 100 mile jacket. see you all next year"
"The toughest most rewarding run I have ever ran . The atmosphere and commeradery among the runners, support crew, organisers and of course the lap counters was fantastic. This day will stay with me for a long time and I will constantly use it as a reminder of what I'm capable of. Thanks for a great day."
