St Austell Running Club and Imery's delivered a slick operation. A unique course
which shouldn't be missed if you want an opportunity to run a seriously
challenging marathon with brilliant support crew. See you next year!
Incredible views, varied and VERY challenging terrain, my first trail marathon and I loved it. The marshals were lovely, the cold sponges an inspiration on the hottest day of the year so far. And I saw a Cuckoo!!!
A well organised very well priced unique race. Where else can you run on a lunar landscape with some breathtaking scenery. Worth the trip if you're not based in devon or cornwall. Will definately try and fit this into next years race diary
Undulating terrain... Possibly the hottest day of the year so far ... Absolutely mind blowing scenery .. Never seen at this aspect before even though I live locally .... Brilliantly organised from start to finish... Super duper marshalls at ALL points... Fantastically stocked drinks stations...Overall the best race I have participated in and also the hardest.
