Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Still buzzing from my first 1/2 Marathon! Organization was very good and overall good value. The course had small hills which added an extra challenge. Running 13 laps is not the same as one loop but when you’re in the zone you forget about it! We’ll organized and started in time.

Did the 10 Mile in 2019
Don’t go off too fast! It’s 1 mile laps, with short sharp inclines. Not much chance of a PB but no non-runners to get in the way like other Run Through venues.<br />Volunteers were pucka as always.
