These are comments on our previous Half Marathon event using the same trails:
“I thought that the race was brilliantly organised, the marshals were excellent and the cakes at the end were very welcome! The course is a fantastic off roader with lots of variety and scenery, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I hope that the event raises lots of money for Oakhaven Hospice.” [C.P.]
“This was my first visit to the New Forest as my sister and family have recently moved down to Brockenhurst. I thought I’d combine the visit with the run and what a super way to see the countryside which you have on your doorstep. The route was fabulous (I understand a bit dryer than last year!) and there were plenty of marshalls all around the course to point us all in the right direction, and give a bit of encouragement. Thanks for a super day, I hope the fundraising was a success as well!” [S.M.]
“Just wanted to drop you a short note to say what a great event you put on, both myself and my partner said it’s probably the nicest and best organised event we have done.
“The countryside is stunning so much nicer than running round South London, thanks to the organisers, the marshalls who were so friendly and encouraging, St John thankfully did not have to use them , the guys on the water station and the jelly babies although my mum even at 46 would not be happy with me taking sweets from strangers and all the people who behind the sceans mean these events can run. Oh and your sponsors.
“It was so nice that people respected the place been to so many races were after the water station there are loads of dropped bottles and gel wrappers but you seem to have it just right. Do hope to do it again.” [R.E.]
“I just wanted to say thank you for organising the race today. I had a fantastic time and it was so well organised. I would also like to say thank you to all the people that were marshalls. It could not have been pleasant standing in the freezing cold. I hope everything went well and that you raised lots of money. Well done to you all!” [GD]
“Just wanted to email and say a big thank you to you and your team for a great race today. It was a fantastic course, great goody bag, medal and tshirt and most of all a great cause. I read about your husband on the website and was touched by his story and was compelled to run after reading it. He would have been very proud of this race and the fantastic efforts you have all gone too.
I do a lot of races all over the place but i think this will be one of my favourites and will try and be back next year. Thank you once again and best of luck with your future fundraising for Oakhaven.” [L.A.]
“I must say that was one of the best 1/2 marathon events I have seen in a long time and the cakes were of equal quality!” [A.W.]
