Perfect for a pb
It's a good run, well organised and a generally pretty flat course. You'll see that you have to pay up to £17. That may not be a surprise ... you have to pay to enter runs except the brilliant 'Park Run'. I was miffed when I arrived to discover that on top of the entry fee I had to pay a pretty hefty fee for parking.. I just kinda assumed parking would be included. Suddenly 'value for money' was reduced. That is why I only gave 2 stars for 'organisation'.
Did the 10k in 2018
