I really enjoyed the race but was disappointed that I wasn’t entered in the correct age category and even when I made contact with the organization nothing was done. I came third in the over 60s age group and pushed hard to achieve this but was categorized in the FO group

I didn't receive any communication at all from the organisers, but the race number etc was available at the info tent. It would have been nice to receive a quick 'essential info' email with bits like that in it, rather than nothing at all.

The course was good, you definitely felt like you completed 13.1 miles, the course markers were present throughout! I think they could have had more water stations. And also we almost got lost in the route as there was no guide to signpost us! Overall good atmosphere, earned my medal, got a t-shirt!

Lots of people and support. Marshals were helpful and motivating. Even after a storm, they had it all ready for everyone for the morning. Smooth start. Smooth finish. Horrid claim for the finish, haha.

Great atmosphere but a shame that I was entered into the wrong category so my 3rd place didn’t show up

Very well organised race against some challenging weather conditions. Great post- race refreshments and goody bags. Huge improvement on last year. Not sure the date clashing with Father’s Day brought out the crowds though.

Good organisation and atmosphere. Great volunteers. Not good having to collect race pack. Foot Solutions knew nothing much about the distribution until the day before when they kindly phoned me. Your 2 sites gave conflicting information. Much better when posted as in the past
