Race the Sun Lake District testimonials

It really was an amazing day that we really enjoyed! The organisation was incredible so well done to you and your team!

We had an amazing day, very hard but very rewarding. Faultless organisation at every stage, must say well done to everyone involved from the charity and the marshal’s.

We decided to give the Race the Sun Lake District a go and were delighted to have done so. The organisation was superb, very safety conscious and very well supported. Marshalls at all key points, no real chance of getting lost and lots of encouragement along the way. We all felt that it was one of the best sporting events we had ever done. We made a family weekend out of it and the children were delighted to see us along the way coming off Helvellyn and then again at the finish. Massive thanks to all the organisers and a great way to raise funds for a very worthwhile charity. If you are considering this as a challenge then do it, you will not be disappointed. The only question is which event to tackle next…

The most amazing day! Starting at 7am was a challenge!! But I can honestly say it was worth it! The challenge setting was fab and the team spirit of all teams we met was great. Go prepared to be challenged on bikes and walking, the kayaking is the fun bit (if you like kayaks!). I would have done it all again the week after. A big thank you to all the organisers and marshalls on the challenge for making it an unforgetable day.

‘I honestly couldn't suggest anything to make Race the Sun any better. It's obvious the amount of thought and consideration that has gone into all the planning. We loved it, thought it was amazingly well organised, everyone was so enthusiastic and motivating...........what more can I add?!............. How do I make the pain in my legs go away?! Thanks so much for a truly fantastic day.’

“On behalf of Team Grip I would just like to say a big thank you to all the organisers, marshals, and everyone involved in making the event a success. I know how much work goes on behind the scenes before and afterwards, and we all thought it was done fantastically well.”

“..Just to say a BIG thank you all and to say how much we enjoyed competing in "Race the Sun" last weekend. We thought the event was very well run and organised, and you could see safety was paramount. Everyone including the marshals did a great job especially in the weather conditions we all had to endure. Everyone had a smile on their face and there was a great atmosphere through out the day. Being the first event like this I have done I have now been "Bitten by the Bug" and want to do more”

“I took part in the event on Saturday as part of team bell-porter (52) and just wanted to let you know how well we found the whole event was organised. The marshalling was excellent, all of them being extremely friendly and encouraging. The staff at the base were also excellent and made the whole day run very smoothly. Thank you again and i look forward to next year!”

Brilliantly organised event, a definite experience for entries of all levels. Thanks go to my team members, Ken Bull, Steve Withington, Nina Nige and driver Rob for support all the way. Did any one of us say we want to have a go at another one? Answers on a postcard to: anywhere undeliverable. For those who are thinking of entering be prepared to sweat a lot, bleed a little, laugh loads and enjoy every painful moment. Go for it!!
