5.0Did the 5k in 2018
Such an amazing event to be part of. It was well organised, with plenty of toilet facilities, water and electrolyte drinks on the course and more importantly, not too overcrowded when running. The supporters enroute were great, cheering you on, now matter who you were! Would highly recommend the event next year.
