Did the 5k in 2021
My partner and I chose this run as our first 5K and loved it! The staff was really nice and it was a beautiful evening so couldn’t complain. I will say a couple of the volunteers were just sat around or on their phone during the event, but the rest of them were so kind. Also the gentleman warming us up needs a microphone or something because it just felt like he was shouting and it wasn’t on brand with the rest of the event. All in all loved the run, would gladly do it again - but heads up, lots of uphill terrain my partner and I weren’t ready for.
