What you said after the 2010 Ythan Challenge...

‘This was my first Ythan Challenge and I loved it. I felt like a big kid and went round with a big smile on my face wondering what obstacle would be round the next bend. Well done on an excellent race.’

‘Hard work. Lost both shoes! Won’t be my last try though!’

‘Great to see comments from previous years on board with extra water stations.’

‘A fantastic event, really good fun. I'd like to see more obstacles within the estate though! Another water station as it was such a hot day and cups ready full of water would have been good. I was really disappointed not to go in the river, so I'll definitely be back next year! Oh, and the hay bales AND cargo net at the end were very cruel!’

‘It was disappointing, but understandable, that we didn't get to cross the river. Otherwise, it was a brilliant day,’

‘Shame about the water crossing but entirely understandable why it was cancelled. I thought the route was a little on the long side this year.’

‘The best 10k I have run for value and fun!’

‘Still not enough water stations.’

‘Just a great atmosphere! Race marshals and competitors were all so privileged to be there knowing how popular the event is.’

‘My first time and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Tough race, but can't wait to come back again next year for more punishment. Thanks for organising such an excellent event. Let’s hope the run through the Ythan is on next year!’

‘Great course this year and enjoyed the fact that there were more water stops and km markers. Really well organised and great fun!’

‘The water stations were well managed but bottled water would be much better than cups.'

'The Meadows showers were cold. The lack of the river section was unfortunate and could not be helped, but please don’t consider dropping it from future years. The distance markers seem pointless when you're not told the overall distance the race covers.’


‘Would prefer if race started earlier. Running during mid day sun was too hot!’
