Did the 5k Fun Run in 2019
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!!

Hi there. Just to let you know the official cut off time is 3 ½ hours, however, the organiser wants everybody to take part and enjoy the event so they are more than happy to assess on the day if a little more time is needed :)

Hi, are you allowed to drop down from half marathon to 10k?
Stephy Dennis
4/13/2019
Hi there. Thanks for getting in touch. Because of there way the course is designed to complete a half marathon you will run 4 loops of the course, where as the 10k course is 2 loops of the course. You are more welcome towrope down and only run 10k however, you will need to let the officials know on the day you are doing that otherwise you will not get a finishers medal or an official finishers time. All the best!
