Perfect for a pb
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.
4.3Did the 10k in 2019
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.
