Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all those from IRC involved in organising this year’s DoQ. Once again it was thoroughly enjoyable despite it being a bit warmer than ideal.
Neil Cort

Did the double on the strength of what you said and your advice was spot on. Please pass on my compliments to all involved. The run was very well organised, friendly and the Marshal's were great. Banners were excellent and made me smile when I really didnt want to! Barring eventualities my partner and I will be back next year


Feedback 2014

"Absolutely excellent race - well done!"

"I am really glad you got in touch as I have been meaning to e-mail you and the team at Ilkeston Running Club. It was my first 10 mile race and I and 3 other girls from various running clubs came down from Sheffield to join the event. We all thought it was fabulous – it was well organised but take this as a compliment in an “easy-going not over fussy manner”. The venue was really beautiful and course even though 2 laps was very scenic as missed most of it on the first lap! All the Marshals were fantastic and really encouraging (the man with the cup of jelly babies on lap 2 saved me!) it was lovely evening and despite abit of runners tummy I really enjoyed it. We all said we would be back next year and will spread the word.

Please pass on our thanks to the organising crew I can appreciate that a lot of organising and commitment and others giving up their opportunity to participate to make sure everyone had a good race.

Also thanks to the young man and woman on Lap1 standing at the quit point encouraging everyone to keep going they made my mind up for me."

"It is the first time i have entered the Double or Quits race, i just wanted to say i really enjoyed it and thought it was a great event! I felt that it was really well organised too. I liked that i didn't have to commit to a distance until i was actually doing the event. Also I thought it is at a good time for those who will be doing the Ikano half marathon. I will be encouraging my friends to complete it next year! I liked the boot bag, but the only thing i would change is I would have loved a t-shirt; good for advertising the event too I always think! I hope that Double or Quit returns next year, as an even bigger event! A big thanks to all those who participated in organising the event."

"Hi I'm really glad that you emailed as I wanted to say thank you for such a friendly well organised run- if I loved locally I wouldn't have any hesitation in joining your club. Thanks once again and I look forward to next year"
Marie- Claire 

"Just to say, cracking race and organisation.  Marshals were all supportive and encouraging.
Look forward to beating my time next year."

"Just wanted to say how good the marshals were - I've not been running too long but out of the races that I have done, the ones at Double or Quits were the most encouraging (which I think is needed when you're doing 2 laps and are possibly quite spread out from other runners!).Excellent race, thanks,"

"We really enjoyed the event and will probably take part again next year! "

"Very well organised and a nice route :) Only downside for me was the toilets being closed when I had finished!"

"Some quick feedback:
Race is excellent every year and encouraging marshalls are appreciated  especially on the climbs. Even the weather was perfect this year. Definitely  be back next year.
Many thanks"

"I thought the organisation was good and you’ve obviously got a great set of volunteers – the marshals were really supportive which is good boost when you’re towards the back of the field where there weren’t so many runners around/in sight."

"Praise where it's due. One of the best group of marshals I've come across."

" The marshals were great yesterday. Every single one cheered me on. (Probably because I looked like I was dying, but hey)"

"Cheers. I was first unattached in my age group so really chuffed. Might join a club!"

"Hey guys. Fast turnaround with results. Well chuffed with mine. My friend was 1st in the VF45 cat too!"

"Proper happy with my time, now to smash it next year :)"

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the double or quits run on Saturday. I was surprised by them hills twice LOL.
I will be back next year with more victims, sorry runners, thank you Andrew Bird for bending my arm. great run all round THANK YOU MARSHALS"
