Did the 10k in 2020
This was my second race, first after COVID-19. The communication before the race from the organisation was great, kept us updated at all times. The organisation on the day to ensure that we could keep a safe distance while still enjoying a race environment was amazing. The support from marshalls and friends along the route was fantastic. Special mention to a family between km 3-4 or 6-7 on the way back, many thanks for your support!!
