Did the 10k in 2019
The route was absolutely amazing. The scenery was fantastic and the course was easy. But the event needs to be better organised. Someone has to explain things clearly what we do at the beginning and get some warm space before we begin. We were freezing up there. Also, paying £33 for a 10k run, I think it is too much. Other events are much cheaper. The medal was great but a T-shirt would be nice to have and remember

Did the race in 2018
No my husband and I knew everything required for this event before the start.Keep it the same as no problem with route. I will remember for next year to bring money to buy an event t-shirt.
