This is the third time I’ve run at Prestwold and always enjoy it!Parking is easy, safe with loads of spaces. Marshall’s are always great and I loved the pre-run warm up. The course consists of repeating loops of a driving track (4 loops for 10k) and you can really ‘get into the running zone’. Will definitely be back again, and again!

The course was flat, as promised.Parking was free and well organised.Race organisation was spot on and welcome and instructions continually given via PA as runners arrived for different race distances during the late afternoon. Water stations were provided.I’m not a fan of lap courses but a marshall ensured you stayed on track for your distance.It wasn’t a race for many spectators but the course was well marshalled and some marshals gave very enthusiastic support.Thank you for a great race!

Terrible course, open to strong winds but told ‘it’s always windy here’, loud music blaring, too many races set off too close to each other so runners getting held up, most of the marshals clearly didn’t want to be there and who could blame them.

Expected the course to be flat as that’s how it was described online, oops not so flat. And wow that headwind really through me off. But a very well organised event!
