Terrible organisation. Gave us the numbers and the goodie bags before the race after standing for ages to get them. Where exactly did they expect us to keep them?

He course was measures incorrectly. I spoke to a number of people on the day and out GPS devices all measured 12.8miles, which is a significant shortfall. Race bags were also given out before the run which is silly, and the same medals were given out regardless of the distance achieved. Very poor.

Great run! Only thing to mention is it wasn't too easy to find the starting line for the 10k run - a steward pointed us in the right direction but the signage could have been better.

The event was very well organised with lots of marshalls to help if needed. Best advice - enjoy it and don't beat yourself up if you didn't achieve the time you were hoping for - Sutton Park is a very tough course and takes you by surprise.I very much enjoyed the run and will be back!!
