Many thanks, as always a wonderful event...big thankyou to all organisers and marshalls J

Many thanks for getting in touch and organising a really great day, everyone at the hall and at the checkpoints were superb.  See you next year  Tom

I just wanted to say a big 'Thank you' to all the volunteers back at base and at the checkpoints. Everyone was so cheerful and kind and it made the somewhat muddy experience so much nicer. I walked with my two regular walking friends, Mandy and Samantha and we'll be back next year, hopefully!Best wishes

Many thanks for a well run, muddy and slippery event. It’s not an easy course, but the tea ladies at the end made it worthwhile. I hope the coffers are full. PS I did note an absence of any scouts, and as they are the ones benefitting, one would hope that they would get involved a bit more. I also understand that with kids – it’s sometimes easier to just do things yourself! Thanks again. I am in agony – but perhaps more training would of helped!

Thanks for another fantastic day also thanks to everyone who helped. One big favour to ask , what was the flavourings used in the veggie stew. I want to make some really enjoyed it. Paul 

I really enjoyed the day and really appreciate the efforts of all involved with the set up and running of this event (especially the refreshment stalls ðŸ˜Š). Although I know this is primarily a walkers event, I think it's fantastic that you accommodate for runners too. Thanks very much once again and all the best for the future.Regards Keith (East Hull Harriers)

Great event for runners and walkers alike, no surprise the participant listed has grown so quickly. Organisers did a really great job reorganising parking quickly when mud ruled out the usual field parking.Cheers,Danny Aldus

Well done to all organising and manning yesterdays Golden Fleece event! Great communication from sign up and up to the event start - email info prior to event especially useful.  Met some wonderful people on the way round, and some wonderful CP volunteers, including youngsters who did a great job at CPs. Got very muddy but what fun!  It was a long day but smiles all round at the end and great sense of achievement. Big well done all!  Kath.

Yesterday was our third Golden Fleece event and as always we are so impressed with the superb volunteers providing encouragement, drinks and the best food en route of any event we have taken part in and delicious hot stew (and even more goodies) at the end makes it all worthwhile. Please pass on our thanks to all involved Brenda, Sue and Eleanor

Thanks for a great day yesterday - lovely rolling route, friendly and well organised checkpoints- 27.5 miles but well worth it! Nasty hills at end but superb route for an off road run- thank you to all the organisers-- and, of course, beautiful sunny day did help!!!!   Jane 

Thank you for today. Well organised and friendly volunteers. Bit disappointing at the end as there was nothing to tell us that we had to go inside to get our times logged. It was only fluke that I went in and found out so was able to call my girlfriend in to get her time too. Otherwise perfect wether and the right amount of support.   Phil  

Thank you for a great event. This was one of the longest walks we have ever done as a father and son team, and we really enjoyed ourselves!!! Somehow we survived..... What a great way to remember Bob. Looking forward to next year's walk!  Regards, Darren & Luke 

Absolutely fantastic, congratulations to South Cave Scout group, pleased to see such a good turn out again. Keep up the good work see you again next year. This could become a classic. Paul.

Just wanted to say thank you to you and all the volunteers on the day, especially those at the refreshment check points. Their smiling faces and words of encouragement certainly helped to keep us motivated, especially towards the end of the walk. A big thank you to everyone involved. Debbie

Many thanks to everyone that made the walk yesterday such a great day out , look forward to taking part again next year. Best regards Tom 

thank you to you and your team for a fabulous day well organised fabulous marshalls a friendly smile at every checkpoint you are all trully wonderful thanks di 

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team for a fantastically well organised event on Saturday. Unfortunately I only made it to Brantingham as for some reason my feet decided to develop 9 blisters and was in agony so had to stop. Aside from that, had a great day and am sure I’ll be signing up for next year. Please pass on my thanks to all involved, Mark

You put on a wonderful event on what turned out to be a glorious day. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and hope to be back next year. Thanks again, Jim

Thank you for organising it all - it was great - see you next year! Jane 

Many thanks to you and everyone else involved in organising the event. Thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Regards Paul 

one of the best organised walks I have attended, regards Donald

thanks for a putting on such a splendid event. And for arranging the glorious weather!. Rod

ROUTE DESCRIPTION ERROR - short route I don't know if anyone else has pointed out that the instruction in para 2 on reaching the B1230 road should be turn RIGHT, not left as printed. I'm guessing this may account for the fact that (so I was told) someone doing the short route ended up on the road near Walkington. We very much enjoyed the event (specially the cake and other goodies) and will doubtless be back next year. Regards Pam

the whole day was well organized and my gratitude goes to all those people who manned the check in points and supplied refreshments. looking forward to 2014 Bob

Absolute credit to South Cave Scout Group for this event, well organised and sure this will continue to become an established event in memory of a lovely man. Graham
