Did the 5k in 2021
I did this with 5 friends. We walked the course which was ideal as it was flat so no hazards! My only criticism would be there weren’t enough live bands along the route. The Oompah Loompas were great and a welcome sight on the home straight. Fab event, would definitely recommend and do it again.

Did the first one in 2019...loved it...knew this one would be more popular...even with Covid...just needs more bands or music... thought that more of the hotels and bars along the route could of put music on...but a great run event...

Really enjoyed the atmosphere after over a year of lock down. It was good to be with other runners and to be able to participate in a proper event as virtual ones can be lonely.Luke and team did a sterling job.
