Did the race in 2021
This was a fun day out. And we all had fun. Wasn't too busy and the bubble areas were great.Unfortunately the start wasn't well signposted we walked almost right round the course before finding the start and when we got there it did take a while to get checked in... Then timing went to pot completely the warm up was a bit haphazard and thrown together and there was space to have a lot more Bubble stations. It really felt like a walk round the park at times... And what happened to our shout out? However, we did this as a group of mams, dad's and children from a close year group community and the kids had a ball. And we adults laughed alot too. We were soaked dyed all colours and scruffy when we finished... A really good morning out. Definitely we would do it again... Just for the laughs.
