What our participants say:

Awesome run today at the Derwent Dawdle. Well organised all around. Looking forward to their next event.

Absolutely cracking day out at Derwentwater Dawdle... it was wet, boggy, rocky, hilly and fantastic!

Thanks for a fantastic event, endless river, water slides, rocks and bogs were ace! 

We would just like to say how much we enjoyed the Derwentwater Dawdle yesterday as my friend isn't a runner I chose to walk this one with her! Although our navigation went a bit pear shaped and we only managed 17 miles before having to get picked up we had a fantastic day of rocks, bogs, mud, water and laughter ? Thank-you to the kind marshal who picked us up and Well Done to the Ascend Events for a fabulous event! We will be back for the" Four Passes" hopefully we won't take a wrong turn

Had an absolute blast today! A tad wet but well worth it. 

Just wanted to say thank you for putting on such a fantastic event yesterday. The Derwentwater Dawdle was my first time attempting over half marathon distance, and to do it over such difficult terrain was a real challenge! I don't think I would have been able to do it without the excellent support provided by your crew and the encouragement from the other competitors. I will definitely be back for more of your runs. Thank you.

Great event today. Well organised, friendly people, lots of tasty food and I will eventually forget the cramp in my legs that I suffered on the climb to Honister Pass. Will be back next year!

What a great (but tough) day!!

Just wanted to thank the organisers, and all the voluntary staff on today's course... smiles, encouragement and Great nutrition choices at each checkpoint....including the finish!

Looking forward to next year and think you guys should continue organising events like this one, it was awesome!

Thanks so much for a fantastic day. I had a great time and you did a fabulous job

Loved the Lakeland Four Passes yesterday. I'll be back for the Derwent Water Dawdle in March. Thanks to the @AscendRuns team. Great event!

What an amazingly tough race the #fourpasses is! Just Stunning! Well done to all at @AscendRuns for a brilliant event. My quads hate you ;) 

Thanks again for a wonderful event on Saturday. I ran it with my partner and we thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for you next event! Thanks to you and all your team for the fantastic support around the route.

I just wanted to say a big thanks for putting on the event yesterday it was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.

The organisation was outstanding, the checkpoints were brilliant and the atmosphere throughout the full day was extremely enjoyable.

I can only imagine how much planning and hard work went into this and I have to say for your first event I persoanlly thought you knocked it way out of the park.

Keep up the great work and I hope you managed a few beers last night.
