Did the 10k in 2019
Well organised - to make different race distances run so smoothly together must take some serious effort! The Tunnels didn’t feel crowded, the aid station was plentiful, and the finish line everything you could ask for - medals, chocolate, fruit... Have run this event 4 years in a row, will definitely be back!
Did the Half Marathon in 2018
My first half marathon. It was never going to be easy due to the hot weather, I believe it peaked at 34 degrees during this race. Thankfully the 2 tunnels were a lifesaver, one being about 400m long and the other was about a mile long, these were dark and damp, this was amazing during the basking hot weather. Doing the half you end up going through these 4 times (running the half marathon required 2 laps of the course.) Even though there wasn't a lot of spectators, the support from marshals was great, and was a nice but different having to run alongside runners completing different distances (5k & 10K)
