We did not partake and did our own walk as you changed times at the last minute. 2 of us were doing 5k and 1 10k. There was only one drink station for the 10k participants Not the 5k and the temperature was off the scale.Will not sign up again

Best thing about it was running down a traffic free prom . It was advertised as a fun run but to be honest it’s a fast course which would suit PB hunters as well as fun runners . Some prizes would have been good . Water should have been given at the start as well as on the course , I bought a bottle for £2 from a van nr the start when there were 100’s of bottles stacked up ! For the entry price I would have expected water ,maybe prizes ( small ) and fruit or biscuit at finish . I have entered next yr as I think it’s a great location and like the traffic free route !

Too hot due to the late start time. 10k could have had water at the turnaround point. Confusion over if there was a baggage store.

It was a great event, I’m a seasoned runner and the whole idea is brilliant. It would be good to have more music at the turn point by the roller coaster. The steel band were awesome and provided a great beat which is great to run to. It was a shame that more people didn’t congregate near the comedy carpet but this was due to extreme heat and lack of shelter. I waited opposite under the shade of the tower as I was running the 10k and needed to protect myself from the sun/heat.Keep going with this guys, it’s a brilliant idea and may just catch on through the rest of the country.
