Good for beginners
As a 10k newbie I was really impressed with the course itself and how well the whole event was organised. It's a lovely route, very scenic and whilst I was initially concerned by the use of the word 'undulating' for the course, it really was just right for someone like me who is very adverse to the uphill :) Thanks so much to the many volunteers along the way, as well as all the local supporters cheering us on. I very highly recommend this race!

Very friendly atmosphere throughout - from lining up at the start, the great stewards along the course and the finish line (also the runners seem friendly as well). Nice scenery during the run. Can be a little bit challenging with a couple of hills, but nothing major.

Lovely village race, with 3km for the kids or people who want a shorter challenge. The 10km is well signed, mixture of terrain, and they always have pretty medals 🏅

My daughter ran the 3k. I managed to watch her come through then dash to start 10k. Lovely course. Well signposted.
Did the 10k in 2019
A very small event but very well organised. Course well laid out with a lot of marshals who were very friendly. Highly recommend

Is this a buggy friendly race?
Hi there. Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately this isn't a buggy-friendly race as it isn't on completely closed roads.
Are there water stations and are there distance boards ever kilometrer
