"Richard and I thoroughly enjoyed the Nighttime Madness. It was really well organised and I thought the inclusive atmosphere was fantastic -so good to see super fit athletes, ordinary souls like us and families with kids all having fun doing basically the same event. Well done. It's also fantastic to have photos provided free -thank you".
"My daughter and I went 25 minutes faster than our training walk and now have some sore legs to prove it, but it was a unique and fantastic experience. I hope to persuade the other half of the family to join in next year!"
