Thoroughly enjoyed the event even although I didn't achieve a great time, the encouragement from the marshals and other competitors helped me get to the finish line. My son however had a fantastic day and came 2nd in his age category and 16th of the 177 entries. We are so proud of his achievement! We also raised money for the Movember charity so it was definitely a good day in the park!

Really great atmosphere, which was well organised and loads of fun. Loved being part of this 10k event and running with such lovely people. The course was perfect for all ages and the race marshals encouraged everyone. Proud to be part of a worthy charity. Look forward to the next 10k!

Route got a bit boring if I'm honest and there was only 1 water station 2 or 3 would have been ideal especially if its full of people then having to run another 5 k to get water the next time you pass

Disappointed to not have any sign posting of where the race actually was from the car park. Race numbers could be emailed out in advance too. Not a course for PBs lots of stopping as paths not wide enough for the amount of people. Perhaps getting estimated times and going in waves would work better.
