The race was fun and very well marshalled. The marshals were in particular extremely encouraging and helpful. The only issues was that due to the heavy rain and darkness it was somewhat hazardous going to and from the portaloos. Also once in the portaloos it was extremely difficult to see unless you had a torch. For such future events can I suggest that these loos are placed on steady ground and in some or with some light. Also because of the extreme conditions it was hazardous when walking to the start as it was across a very muddy and slippery trail. At least one person fell over. I would also like to point out that there was nearly an accident when a couple of 10k runners walking from the bandstand almost walked right in front of the leading 5k runner. In future perhaps consider a direct route for runners going to the start that does not cross the main race route? I hope that these constructive comments will be well received because this is a great event but the exceptionally wet weather made it a bit hazardous in the areas stated above. However once on the course the route was exceptionally marshalled and made as light as possible,

The bag drop area was not secure and I was not happy about leaving my possessions there, so I could not run. This was extremely disappointing because the pre-race literature promised a secure bag drop. People were coming and going from the bandstand and no organisers were able to check bags left with the actual owner.

It was raining at the start of the race which led to a bit of congestion at the bag drop. Runners left bags at the bandstand and were reluctant to leave as this was the only shelter. Other than that the organisation was up to its usual very high standard and the marshals were out in force giving us lots of encouragement.

It was indeed dark ! Couldn’t see much at the start and end and the facilities were set up in a giant puddle. To be fair when they set up sure it wasn’t raining.

It was my first race and I loved it! The weather didn’t dampen my spirits - and the volunteers were fantastic - especially the gentleman with the beard with 1,200m to go!
