Did the 10 Mile in 2022
Glad did it but not as sold. Said course was quite undulating when booked but found hills massive..climbing nearly 900 ft over 10 miles is a hilly challenging course. One of entrances given on instructions was locked for cars. No signage from car park to venue. Not local so did not know No porta toilets near start for race. Not enough water stations around park on a boiling hot evening
