Frances Evans   I just wanted to say a hugely massive thank you for the whole amazingness of the Cotswold Way! ?????????????? I was expecting to enjoy myself but I could not have hoped to have such a fabulous time. The event is so superbly well organised that each little piece blends in so well but is def very much appreciated! For example, finding that my number is also on my tent and my heavy bag was already in the tent when I arrived each day – wow I did appreciate that! ?. Every single member of your team was so energetic and helpful that it made every interaction a joy and also keeping the energy levels up eg at checkpoints really did help and I heard so many positive comments from other runners too – very much appreciated thank you!  It doesn’t seem enough just to say that we all appreciated them but I hope they know just how much their wonderfully positive attitudes really did contribute to our enjoyment of the event ???. I also appreciated just how many checkpoints you provided, even in the rain it was great to be able to stock up at each checkpoint but the mental boost from seeing the team each time cannot be underestimated!   I made so many new friends and met so many inspiring and encouraging people along the way, it has been a totally motivating experience, thank you for such a great first ultra  ? Not only am I hoping to come back next year but several other members of my running club are thinking of joining in too – please let me know as soon as registration opens! ?(Email)


Sarah Haslam    Thank you and your team so much for a thoroughly amazing experience. I came with three friends, and we all loved it. Never having been to the Cotswolds, it was great to explore them so thoroughly, even if some of the deviations via various monuments were a little swear inducing at times!…..The fact that there are no times, no places and no competition made it such a fabulous atmosphere, full of supportive goodwill, that I was sorry to say goodbye to my fellow runners. It’s the longest event I have ever done, and I am still in awe of myself for doing it. Thank you for the opportunity to take part, I absolutely LOVED it. (Email)

And the walkers, runners, locals and golfers met along the way, who were frequently bemused but always encouraging. Fantastic event.

Rebecca Blake    Walk or run anyone who took part did well. That’s the spirit of an event like this. Runners and walkers should support each other so a well done to everyone on both events. Fab even as always I’ll be back next year.(Facebook)
