Did the 4 Mile for Buggies & Wheelchairs in 2021
A very well organized and a superb venue. The community spirit was great. Only suggestion would be a few more toilets. 😁

Did the 7k in 2021
It was an all-round great experience, with friendly guidance all the way along. The marshals where excellent and very encouraging. It is definitely NOT a "walk in the park". But a fantastic venue with incredible scenery, in fact one feels it is over too quickly.Thanks for an amazing experience!
