  • Did the 10km in 2019

    Beautiful scenery but the course would be flatter if you used the path directly by the reservoir. However the service road has quite a lot of undulations, although not huge inclines/declines. Very supportive staff at the start/finish line - but the rest of the course is quite lonely! Well organised, excellent post race goodies.
  • Did the 10km in 2018

    An enjoyable scenic run where PB's can be smashed! Well organized with a friendly atmosphere. Could do with one more water stop along the route, when the weather is hot.
