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.

Very much enjoyed the race, good course, muddy/crowded in parts but that can't be helped.Crowds were great and everyone was really friendly and encouraging. My only criticism would be the bag drop. Putting everyones property on plastic sheets on the floor in torrential rain is asking for trouble.My bag was soaked through and covered in mud.Could have easily been avoided by getting some pallets to raise all the bags etc off the floor.Maybe next time!

Every year this event is amazing and one of my favorite to race. The route was good but seemed congested in some parts...this may be due to the fact that the 5k race was also taking part. We were queuing to collect our numbers and it was a slow process. It started raining and we were soaked and cold (I know the weather is unpredictable) but maybe send the numbers in the post or have a more organised process. Other people may think differently but it was only because I seen dozens of people jumping the queue grabbing any number they could because it was raining. Nevertheless, it has always been a great event and look forward to the next one where I can retain my title due to winning it this year. Thanks, Lee.
