Route changed from last year. This year there was too much running round the car parks & not enough zoo running. Shame we couldn’t see the animals whilst running through the zoo.

Really good run with bonus zoo entry. Only negative was that we paid for t-shirts but they had run out of stock when we went to collect after the race

Only thing missing is a text message or email with my official results. I have found them by searching the web but for the price it would be nice to receive text like the Chester 10km.
