    Really good event. Well organised and the goodie bag at the end is ace. Flat enough for a PB but a very windy 2K stretch makes this course challenging enough.
  • Did the 5k in 2018

    As this was my very first race I've every done, the atmosphere was really good and there was lots going on too. Everyone helped each other by cheering you especially the volunteers who helped run the series. Very well done can't wait til next year. The medal and t-shirt were a awesome addition.
