Tae C – Thank you all for an amazing experience on the cotswolds run. I so wish i was there today and tomorrow, i hope it all goes well and everyone is having a good time. I will be definitely signing up for the whole experience next year. I really enjoyed the community aspect of this event and the trail running, I have run a few marathons, half marathons and also run ragnar, but this is what i have been looking for. And thank you also for the lift back to Gloucester station, there is no way i could have walked it.

Jan H – I’m back home in Ipswich now after the epic 4 days in the Cotswolds. My feet are very sore but the rest of me is surprisingly fine.  I wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you for making the event so great. I had no idea what to expect. I signed up for this when I was super fit having just done my hardest ultra date, and then between January and April I’ve had 2 injuries and the flu, and have had more non-running weeks in that time than in the whole time since I started running, so I very nearly pulled out.  

I’m so glad that I didn’t pull out.  I had such a terrific time – beautiful countryside, friendly walkers, happy dogs, great camaraderie, and such brilliant support from the team.  I’ve realised I’m clearly fitter than I thought. I have a lot of work to do to get my speed back, but my endurance is clearly still there.

So once again thank you.  I’m definitely going to check out your other events. And I’m telling all my running friends about the Cotswold Challenge.Very best wishes.

Anita B & Dave J – Anita and I wanted to express our gratitude to everyone involved with this years’ Run101 that we took part in over this last weekend. Everyone looked after us so well, encouraged us to keep going, offered support when needed, sorted out problems when they occurred (not very often) and provided expert medical treatment for sore feet. All of this was done with a genuine smile. We were never once put under pressure to complete our walk faster than we wanted to even when it meant marshals were kept waiting. 
Neither of us has done anything quite like this before, even climbing Kili was different and probably not as hard. We were originally down to do this last year to celebrate our 40th and 70th birthdays and a year late we have achieved our goal, something special. 
Thank you again, you made it all possible.

Paula D – The event was very well organised, and throughout the runners and walkers were informed about what was going on and what to expect the following day. You and your team were great. 

I continue to promote the challenge to everyone I know, and tell everyone what a fantastic experience this event was.  My overriding feeling was one of professionalism and a crew that were interested in the runners having fun and being safe.

Thanks so much for putting this event on and do let me know if you have another in a different trail in the UK. 

I am completely hooked on this type of challenge. 

Vicky H – I just wanted to say thank you so much to you all for last weekend. I was really nervous as Cotswold Way Challenge was my first multi day event and I nearly chicken out on the drive to the start. I’m soooo glad I didn’t as I had the most amazing time ever. Everyone was so supportive and helpful. Massive thanks to Lou for finding me that Crunchie on Day 4 – it was the nicest thing I’ve ever tasted and gave me a massive boast 😊

Thanks again for an amazing experience – I’m really looking forward to doing it again next year 😊
