Very well organised. 1st 10k so not sure what they’re usually like but there wasn’t as many people there as I thought there would be. Not sure why.

Very enjoyable first ever 5K run. Directions to the start/booking in tent etc could have been more specific as for my first time and not knowing the area that well, the name of the field is great for those who know where it is. It could have been accompanied by a screen shot of a map maybe? Thank you to the marshals though, they saved what could have been quite a few wrong turns and their motivational cheers certainly helped!

This was my first experience of a running event, it did not disappoint! The guy on the mic was brilliant! He made everyone feel hyped before the run. Really well organised, helpers around the course were great too! Felt really supported and knew exactly where I was going. Would 100% do this run again!
