Comments:  Great routes, beautiful. Pace and distance good for me - I was really happy to be in the middle of the group, so I didn't feel stressed about being able to keep up or about not being challenged enough

Comments:  The location was fantastic, adjacent to the open moor but not too remote or hard to find. The house had a lot of character but was also comfortable and well-equipped

Comments:  Absolute highlight was the pre-dawn climb up a trail of diamonds from frost glistening in head torches, a totally epic view across the moors as the sky turned pinks and oranges, and then watching from the top of Rippon Tor as the first rays of the sun came over the horizon. Worth the cold, early start, life affirming and I'm hanging onto the memory. Leaving to return to reality was the worst bit.

Comments:  Great to talk and run with Joe. After the camp I saw an AiM practitioner and I now do the moves daily. It has fixed my back problem

Comments:  [Joe's core session] got everyone involved in a fun way, which was a nice surprise as we all expected a torture session of planks and crunches

Comments:  Pace was about right with the speedsters and tortoises catered for. Guides very inclusive and made sure no man/woman was left behind

Comments:  I really liked the runs and the routes. They were just what I was imagining when thinking about running on Dartmoor. I was able to go at my pace, and appreciated that there wasn't pressure to go faster.
