All the staff were fantastic, encouraging and enthusiastic and willing to help. I Had to change from a 10k to 5k a few days before the event due to injury and It was seamless, thank you.
4.3Did the 5k in 2019
Signing in, bag drop excellent, start (10k) a bit chaotic, lot of runners milling around asking each other what was happening as no one could hear the PA, start waves did nt appear to happen and advertised start times passed before GO sign appeared and everyone did! Marshals brilliant and good atmosphere despite drizzle! Enjoyable event.
4.7Did the 10k in 2019
Love this event. The medal is great and got run through the old railway tunnel. Plus its 5k slight incline up and therefore incline down for the second half. What's not too like about that?
