Hate that hill!Love the course though and the event. Feel a bit left out because I don’t run for a club though and would neverHave time to join one at the moment.
Did the 5k in 2019
Really nice event. Good atmosphere. Well organised. Thank you for the work that went into it. Course is only four stars as going up that incline in Christchurch park twice almost killed me.
