    Such an exciting race, what a cool location! and seeing the animals was a bonus! can't wait for next years!
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Brilliantly organised, lovely course and good crowd
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Friendly family and unique event. Easy access by public transport. Decent warm waiting area. Place to leave bags. Good organisation. 10k is 2 laps of 5km, with a quite a bit of up and down on the last 1km of each lap. Take a change of clothes and try (for free) the park rides after the event.
  • Did the 5k in 2018

    Louder microphone to start the race.
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Really good fun! Good people both running and organising. Will defiantly do again.
