    Did the 5k in 2018

    A great atmosphere but poor organisation. Everything seemed to be very 'budget'. The foam zone was great, the best bit by far. The signage on site was poor so you didn't know where you were meant to be going. The staff were unhelpful too. I wouldn't pay to go again.

    remember the gloves my hands were so cold
  • Did the 5k in 2018

    A great event. Worth noting you get wet and it will be cold.
  • Did the 5k in 2018

    Great fun. Was a little disappointed by the paint bit as it was extremely watery no sign of any colour at all. Advice to next year - have someone waiting with warm clothing for you at the end.Highly recommend it and we will definitely be doing it again
  • Did the 5k in 2018

    First time if doing a 5k the atmosphere on the night was great. Communication before hand was excellent
  • Did the 5k in 2018

    Make sure you have a torch.Headlamps are fine but some parts were very dark.
  • Did the 5k in 2018

    My own personal fault thinking I would be sweating and didn't wear a long sleeve top so was very cold. Maybe a little goodie bag at the end would be great as well as your medal
