Some comments from previous years:

"Thanks so much for organising. It was my first time at the event and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great atmosphere, well organised, beautiful setting (and weather) and superb support. Hope to see you again next year!"


"Many thanks for this and for all the efforts to make last night a great success. It was my first Duathlon and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve done a fair number of running events over the years and helped organise some running races too, so I know how much work goes into these things. I can safely say this was one of the best organised events I have ever been too. Thank you and I hope to return next year"


"Well done GTC for putting on this top event. Enjoy this event year"
