      Definitely needed more toilets. Clearer race instructions to tell everyone to run down the left side of the road. But was a great race, amazing people at the festival and marshal; crowd support was ok, was some jeering as well (know this isn’t the organisers fault)

      Did the event in 2019

      Thought it was very well organised but we didn't really like the route, realise you are limited on where you can go with road closures etc but it was a bit boring route. I also didn't like that people were crossing the road Infront of you all the time had a few near misses. Overall a good day but think I'd rather do the illuminations one again than this one

      Well organised great atmosphere loved it. It would have been good to have the name of each band displayed so we knew who they were .
    • Did the event in 2019

      It was very nice atmosphere with easy route. Very easy and fun to run with the music which have you more energy to run. The weather wasn't the best but still great day out.
