Great course. Quite hilly so not sure it’s PB territory. Parking was easy on the way in and close to start line so could wait in the car for a bit longer, as the weather was chilly. DIY bag drop worked fine. Getting out was a bit of a nightmare due to volume of cars, but marshals did well managing separate queues. Would recommend.

Parking was a bit slow for some though I got In OK. Good number of toilets. Good marshaling and good goodies. Quite liked the out and back bit to the turnaround. Getting out was a bit slow but appreciated the marshal doing traffic duty at the roundabout. Nice goodies. Not much to complain about really.

Run and related organisation was fine but getting out of the car park was an absolute nightmare.!

Great course, relatively flat, excellent atmosphere. Windy up by the house and start line, but great once you get out onto the roads

Very good organisation, almost 2500 runners so good atmosphere.Only two little cons: hill between 2&3 km was little challenging to keep my pace and wind before actual race froze me to bone, so was basically warming up for almost 45 minutes.Overall perfect run, and did my PB but I am just a beginner

Loved the course. Really something needs to be done on getting away from car park post race. Took over an hour to get out, absolute shambles.

Did the race in 2021
Easier to get in and park than I thought (traffic lights on roundabout help massively). Bitter wind so a struggle for 2500 people to stay warm before the start (I stayed in my car until 25 mins before we started). It is a hilly course but lovely running through all the country lanes. Marshalls were great with their tambourines (good idea). Good snacks and alcohol free beer afterwards. Getting out was difficult due to single track exit, it other than that would recommend.

Did the race in 2021
It was a very well organised race and very easy to get to. There was plenty of parking very close to the venue, however there was no organisation of everyone leaving. From the point I got in my car to the point that I managed to get out of the venue was over an hour and a half. This was not ideal after just having run a half marathon.

The course was hilly and ran through beautiful scenery. I enjoyed the day and will hope to return next year.

Hey Peter! At the moment this race is still going ahead.
