I would just like to say well done on organizing such a wonderful race /day, the weather really did hold out for us. All who ran and supported from Acorn Running Club enjoyed a great day what with the Barbecue and cakes at the end, from the feed back I have received I will definitely suggest we make your race a regular in our sports calender /club league.

It was a lovely day blessed by lovely weather. The course was also lovely and fantastically marshalled. I also love the atmosphere and will definately be back next year! JoanneGreat race, well organised, a highlight of the running year. Thanks to all involved in putting it together. Andrew

Would just like to say though,what a well organised,friendly,popular race this is becoming.I have encouraged other club runners to come and fellow friends to run it,which they have,hope you have continued success Well done Thanks Regards Alan

It was a wonderful race, very well organised, very scenic and best of all I achieved my PB. Thank you for making the event so enjoyable. Linda

Thank you for once again organising a most enjoyable race. Being off road makes it traffic-free, fun and a bit different! It was well marshalled and well supported.I was delighted to win and hope the crowd at the finish line enjoyed my 'MoBot !' Thanks once again, a fun event around a fun course.

Just wanted to send a note of thnks for a fantastic race. Really enjoyed it for the lovely course, great atmosphere and for finally helping me to crack my 45 minute time barrier! Thanks again for all the hard work the team must have put in for everything to have run so smoothly. I hope to be back next year. Lara

Your event is one of those I most look forward to. It is one of the best organised and certainly friendliest I compete in. The green area with the food, drink etc mean that our loyal supporters are looked after. The surroundings are fantastic. Ian

It was a lovely event and so well organised. Looking forward to next year. JanThanks for a really top-notch event. Great course, great marshalling, great day altogether. Little wonder you’re becoming so popular, and it would be a shame to limit numbers too much. I’m already looking forward to next year – Richard

I thought sunday was brilliant and loved the course and location, big thanks to everyone involved in putting it on – David

Please accept my thanks and complements to your team for the organisation of the day. The whole activity from booking, the race and to receipt of the results was excellent. Robin

Lovely, friendly atmosphere. Can't ever aspire to 30 mins, but might get nearer the hour eventually!! The marshalls were very encouraging so big thanks from this over 50... AlisonIt was a great day, and I really enjoyed the race. I will definitely be running it next year Paul

I would just like to add my thanks to you and all the helpers for making this a fantastic, well organised event. Both me and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed it all and the BBQ lunch we ate afterwards. The course is great, the weather was a little warm (obviously not yourfault) so was disappointed not to get a PB.I think you are wise to cap the numbers next year to something below this years, as my only very slight criticism would be that the start was a little difficult with the number of runners in a narrow road. Philip

I ran the race in 2010 -I was away last year so missed it-and while the field was noticeably bigger this year the organisation and marshalls were superb again. It is clear why the race has grown in size-the "vibe" is great. Also a great website and nice touch to e mail when race results out. I'll ceratinly try to get a place next year -I think the cap is a good idea.All too often runners take the organisers for granted or post minor grumbles-thank you to you and your team for a really well run race -my favourite this year even if my time was 2 mins down from 2010 ! Stuart

It was a very hot and humid day, however I have received various emails from the Drax Team saying that even during those weather conditions, they thoroughly enjoyed the run and are looking forward to doing more! Lesley

I helped to marshall this event for the third year running and was, once again, thoroughly impressed at the organisation of the whole day. I have nothing negative to say about it. There will always be one or two unforeseen events (hot weather, people overstretching themselves) and these are always dealt with efficiently and promptly.I was particularly impressed at the age range of runners, truly inclusive, and the elderly gentlemen and ladies were fantastic and an inspiration to us all. I know the work it entails and would like to express a huge well done and thank you to the organisers who gave so many a great day yet again. Wendy

thank you to everyone involved in organising the event. It was my first time running it and it was thoroughly enjoyable and well organised. Steve

Just a quick note to thank you for organising a great race. It was my first 10k, indeed my first ever race, and I was really impressed with how friendly everyone was. See you next time...with a better finishing time! Mark

Just wanted to drop you a line about the Escrick 10k race on Sunday. I thought it was a fantastic event and was very well organised. Many thanks to the marshalls who were absolutely super and were a delight to hear cheering and encouraging runners on especially as many were flagging due to the heat and humidity. The BBQ at the end was also a very welcome sight and the thought of a cup of tea and a buttie at the end kept me going. I really hope to do it again next year – Rache

Thanks to everyone of the organizers and marshals, it was a great day in fantastic scenery and I thoroughly enjoyed the race and post run food - its definatley a run I will be doing again. Andy

Thank you for organising a great race - thanks, too, to the friendly marshals who gave loads of encouragement, and to the very efficient staff at both start and finish. Liz

Many thanks for an excellently organized race – really enjoyed it. And it was good to do a race that was so local (I live in Cawood), and see a bit of the local area I’ve never been to before. Fiona

The heat did add to the challenge, but that's what it's all about. A nice twisty course in places makes you work hard, only appreciated after Sunday dinner later on!! Keep up the good work as it's a great event and day. Thanks to all the volunteers too. Simon

I thought what a well organised race you provided and the facilities on the green were excellent!Clare

Can I also say thank you for a very well organised and very friendly race. The marshalls were fantastic and the location was beautiful. It was worth the journey from Lincoln and I will certainly be telling the Lincoln wellington club about it. Barbara

Just to note that I really enjoyed the run yesterday. Well organised with a very friendly atmosphere & good marshalling. Andrewreally enjoyed the race and will def be cal next year glad to hear the collapsed man has recovered and well done to all who organised and helped out yesteRday Elizabeth

Thank you for organizing a great run and day, although next year please could you have a word with the big man upstairs and ask for some cooler weather..... Pru

great race and venue and thanks to all the organisers and marshals who gave time to make this event happen Mark

We just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed today's race. Thank you very much for such a well organised event - it's a great route, and we can't wait to take part next year. Jenny and Paul

Really enjoyed the race, which was superbly organised with helpful and friendly marshals. I hope you raised a lot of money for the village. Brian

Please pass on my thanks to all the marshalls for their work today. A special thanks to your catering committee, the bacon sandwiches were as good as ever! Hope to enter next year as it was a great run this morning. Catherine
