Testimonials

  • Did both of these races last year and both were excellent. Nathan worked hard to make these events special and I’m certain he’ll do an equally grand job with this year’s races. You will not be disappointed if you give any of these races a go. Running at night using a head torch is a unique experience and one which I am more than keen to try again.

  • Did the run from the romans race last night and I was very impressed with the marshals and the on course directions. The medal is also pretty impressive. The only thing I would say is that after such a cold run perhaps a free hot drink wouldn't go a miss.

    Andy Fraser
  • Really great run at Ham Hill last night, highly recommend any of Flying Fox runs for the future. Great course markings, well placed marshalls and a medal that’s up there with the best of them.
