“Great event, superb organisation. Many thanks to all involved”

Lisa Cleary

“We loved this run! Have done loads of half marathons but first time in FOD and it was great! Organisation, marshals, course, volunteers on tea and cakes! Medals are spectacular! Parking and toilets really easy and no littering or anti social runners on the course! I noticed that female runners were represented much more than in all the other races I have done where the field is really dominated by male runners.......some very fit people on this run!! Thank you to everyone involved......”
