"Thank for for an awesome day out today at the Norfolk 100. Fabulous route- even the miserably hard bits had good things about them! Truly wonderful volunteers at every aid station as well as at registration & the finish. And I ran with some amazing and inspirational people today. Oh yes, and I saw so many acts of kindness and camaraderie between runners.
It was a privilege to be a part of this race and my life has been made so much richer for it. Thank you so much."

"Hi Kevin,
Just wanted to thank you for how well today's race was organised. It was a great, friendly atmosphere and, as a first-timer, I thoroughly enjoyed the event. A really nice course and excellent work from all the marshals.

Thanks again,

Thorpe Forest Trail 10km 8th Jan 2017

"Just wanted to thank you once again for letting me take part in yesterday’s marathon at the last minute. Well done on organising a great run - I thoroughly enjoyed it. The marshals were great and the route easy to follow which is a huge bonus for me as I have ABSOLUTELY no sense of direction whatsoever.
