Did the Half Marathon in 2022
Yes I recommend this half, especially to a new runner, the loops are brilliant as each time you go around you know exactly what distance you have left to complete the race. Real toilets on site. Loved ones are able to watch and cheer you on. Parking is directly on site. Aid stations are well set out. Easy access from the motorway. January and the sun was out, awesome!

Did the 10k in 2022
Only gave 3 stars for atmosphere as COVID restrictions in place so no spectators. I would think the atmosphere is great when spectators are allowed 😀

Did the 10k in 2022
Despite the freezing cold weather conditions the atmosphere and support of the marshals and volunteers was fantastic. The scenery was good. Easy to park. Everything well sign posted.The course was described as 'fast and flat' and 'around tarmac paths'. I would say from my experience as a runner that the course could be described as 'undulating'. Also areas of the course were sand in a few parts, and also stone/muddy in others.
