Well organised, friendly team and marshals. Unfortunately it was a bit boring doing four identical laps, so I probably wouldn’t run this event again.

The venue was great ( I’m never a fan of the actual run no matter where it is !!!) but always find the surroundings keep me going & I love the War Memorial Park. Loved the cenotaph drop behind as i ran past it to the finish line!!! 🎊🎉

Really enjoyed this. Weather was OK, a bit humid but perfect for an event. As always the helpers were friendly. I got the time I was hoping for as well. Not sure how I get my T-shirt though
