the only thing was the parking, we could see there was free parking on the grass for the event but there was no signs telling you were to go for this so had to pay for the full parking

Did the race in 2022
I ran with my dog and due to the controversy surrounding park run/canicross etc I was extremely cautious around other runners and was informing them I was on their left or right - with a dog, but virtually everybody had headphones in and so was impossible to keep people know I wanted to get past safely! Otherwise everything was great, many thanks!
